US Takes Action Against Canadian Trade Measures That Discriminate Against US Wine By Hoosier Ag Today – May 27, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News US Takes Action Against Canadian Trade Measures That Discriminate Against US Wine SHARE U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer announced that the Trump Administration has requested that the World Trade Organization (WTO) establish a dispute settlement panel to examine unfair regulations governing the sale of wine in grocery stores in the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC). The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is challenging BC regulations that discriminate against U.S. and other imported wine by allowing only BC wine to be sold on regular grocery store shelves.“We want customers in British Columbia to have the opportunity to buy our great American wine. The practice of discriminating against U.S. wine is unfair and cannot be tolerated any longer. Our wine producers rely on export markets and they deserve fair treatment, especially by our northern neighbors in British Columbia,” Secretary Perdue said.“Canada is an important market for U.S. winemakers,” said Ambassador Lighthizer. “Discriminatory regulations implemented by British Columbia are unfairly keeping U.S. wine off of grocery store shelves, and that is unacceptable. Canada and all Canadian provinces, including BC, must play by the rules. The Trump Administration will continue to hold our trading partners accountable by vigorously enforcing U.S. rights under our trade agreements and by promoting fair and reciprocal trade through all available tools, including the WTO.”The BC regulations exclude all imported wine from grocery store shelves, a new and growing retail channel for wine sales in BC. Such discriminatory measures limit sales opportunities for U.S. wine producers and provide a substantial competitive advantage for BC wine. These regulations appear to breach Canada’s WTO commitments and have adversely affected U.S. wine producers.Additional Background InformationThe United States is challenging BC regulations that were amended in April 2015 to permit the sale of wine in grocery stores. The amended regulations provide two options for grocery stores to sell wine. Under the “wine on shelf” option, a grocery store may sell wine anywhere within the grocery store, but only BC wine may be sold on grocery store shelves.Imported wine may only be sold in grocery stores under a “store within a store” option. Under the “store within a store” option, wine sales must be conducted in a “wine store” that is physically separated from the grocery store, has controlled access, and has separate cash registers from the grocery store’s cash registers. As a “store within a store”, a grocery store may sell both BC wine and imported wine.In 2017, U.S. wine exports to BC totaled $56 million, and U.S. wine had a 10 percent share of the BC market. A number of grocery stores are already selling BC wine on their shelves under the “wine on shelf” option. However, we are not aware of any grocery stores selling wine pursuant to the more costly “store within a store” option. BC’s regulations limit choices and raise costs for Canadian consumers.The United States held consultations with Canada in 2017, but those consultations did not resolve the dispute. Requesting the establishment of a panel is the next step in the WTO dispute settlement process.

The two matches in the 2nd edition of the Prime Minister’s T20 Softball Cup, held on Sunday at the Everest Cricket Ground on Carifesta Avenue, Georgetown, did not disappoint.The victorious Regal Masters TeamThose matches, the Masters and the All-Stars, saw defending champions Regal Masters and Ariel Speedboat become consecutive champions.In the first encounter, softball fans witnessed Regal Masters clashing with Mike’s Wellman. The on-field intensity was there, and Regal retained their title with some difficulty, as Mike’s brought the champs to a close-call encounter.Batting first, Regal were able to amass 145-5 in their allotted 20 overs. At the beginning of the match, Regal were shaky. They lost early wickets, giving Wellman a glimpse of hope. Regal lost their openers Eon Abel and Mahendra Hardyal for scores of zero and 11 respectively.They then went on to lose the in-form Eric Thomas for 7 off the bowling of spin master Imtiaz Mohamed, but the partnership of Mahendra Arjune (44) and David Harper (53) rebuilt the innings to give them a defendable total.Imtiaz Mohamed naturally led the bowling for Wellman, bagging 3 for 17 off his allotted 4 overs. He was the only bowler able to make a dent in Regal’s innings.Set a modest total of 146 to achieve victory, Mike’s Wellman lost both openers for 16 and 22 respectively.W Hussein was awarded man of the match for his 78 runs. He was also named man of the seriesThey could not get any substantial partnership going, and missed the target by six runs, making 140-8 off their allotted 20 overs.Masters’ bowling attack was led by spin doctor Mahendra Arjune, who bagged 4-28.In the All-Stars semi-final, Speedboat were superb in the field, diving for every delivery and plunging for anything that looked like a boundary, when they battled Boots All-Stars in a one-sided affair.Speedboat were able to restrict Boots All-Stars for 125-9 in their 20 overs. The only substantial score came from B. Samaroo, who bludgeoned 55 in his shot-filled innings.Bowlers Kishore Smith with 3-24 and Nazir Hussain with miserly figures of 3-17 were the cream of the crop.Set 126 to win, Speedboat raced to this total in ten overs, with S. Hussein scoring 32 and W Hussein, who was adjudged man of the series and man of the match, blasting 78 off 28 balls.Boots just couldn’t stop Speedboat from trampling them. The bowlers were taken to the cleaners, with every bowler having an economy rate over 9 runs per over.The All-Stars Champions received $700,000 for the win, while Masters had to settle for $600,000 as the teams celebrated to their hearts’ content. The tournament was organised by the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Inc. (Timothy Jaikarran)
With the ghost given up on league honours or promotion hopes, Peter Hutton experimented with his starting line-up against Mervue Utd at Finn Park.With four games left and no chance of a play-off place, the Finn Harps boss gave a number of players a chance.But only the former Derry City player will know what insight he got from tonight’s non-eventful encounter as Mervue ground out a 2-0 win. A number of players including Jordan Duffy and Marty Owens, who wouldn’t normally be in the shake-down for a starting eleven, got the nod.The game was only five minutes old when the Galway side went away in fortunate circumstances.Jason Molloy cut on from the left wing and his deflected shot deceived Ciaran Gallagher to make it 1-0 for the visitors.The lively Paul McVeigh almost got Harps back on level terms on 12 minutes when his curler brought a fine save from Conor O’Malley. What started off as a lively enough counter soon fizzled off for the remainder of the half.In the second half Michael Funston had a 20 yard effort easily saved while Michael Duffy should have doubled his side’s advantage but blazed over from close range.Ryan Manning did manage to grab that second goal for Mervue when he drilled home from Molloy’s cross in the 74th minute.It was the last real action of a game which lived up to the bill of it being a non-event for ether side.

Procedure, part 1To roll an injured person two people are needed. One person is stationed at the head and the other at the victims side. The person on the side places one hand on the victims shoulder and the other on the victims thigh area. The person at the victims head stabilizes the head and neck so that the head and neck does not bend, move, or twist in any direction.Procedure, part 2With the coordinated movement of the rescue team the victim is carefully rolled on his side while the head and neck are supported and kept in alignment.
