Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart says he believes there's a fifty-fifty chance the United States will repeal labelling laws that have complicated Canadian meat exports. US lawmakers are working on the text of an omnibus bill on government spending that could change country of origin labelling, known as COOL. Stewart says it's likely the last chance to see the meat-labelling law repealed until after the next US presidential election in November 2016. (Stewart says retaliation is not a choice to be taken lightly because the US is Canada's largest trading partner, but he also notes that the World Trade Organization has ruled the States to be in non-compliance four times.)
