Al Hudec presents on inter-provincial trading barriers and wine in Ottawa, Ontario

On Friday, November 3, 2017, Al Hudec presented at the Taking Stock: 2nd Annual Canadian Food Law & Policy Conference in Ottawa, Ontario. Al spoke on the panel Federalism and Food focusing on inter-provincial barriers to the direct shipment of wine to consumers in other provinces; and on the importance of the upcoming Comeau Case on Section 121 of the Constitution Act.  The case, which will be heard on December 7, 2017, provides the Supreme Court of Canada to overturn the Gold Seal Case, which restricted Section 121 to tariff barriers and extended the prohibition on provincial trade barriers to non-tariff trade barriers.
