Canada and the US signed a pact to end a long-running dispute over beer. Trade Minister Tom Hockln said Canada got what it wanted. (Under the deal -- to which all provinces agreed -- the minimum sales price for beer along with the handling fees placed on all foreign beer imports would be reduced. That would give US brewers better access to the Canadian market. Ontario's 10-cent a can environmental tax would stay. And, the three-dollar a case duty that both countries slapped on much of the cross-border beer trade the previous year was lifted.)
