New Brunswick's Public Prosecution Service is hoping to take a cross-border beer battle that could have broad trade implications to the Supreme Court of Canada. It says it will seek leave to appeal to the high court to throw out a decision over limits on cross-border alcohol imports. The decision comes after a New Brunswick man was acquitted of illegally importing beer and liquor from Quebec in 2012. The man's lawyer, Arnold Schwisberg, says the ruling could affect trade across the country. (Last month, a New Brunswick judge dismissed an application by the prosecution service to appeal the trial judge's decision.)
