If any EU law specialists out there want to explain the reasoning to us all, let me know (or just comment on this post). The decision is here.
A court has upheld the European Union's three-year-old ban on seal products, dealing another blow to Canada's embattled sealing industry.
The General Court of the European Union issued a statement today saying it has rejected a challenge from a group that included the Canadian Fur Institute and the Inuit.
The Luxembourg-based court says the existing ban is valid because it fairly harmonizes the EU market while protecting the economic and social interests of Inuit communities.
