British Goods are being discriminated aginst by Canada Customs
We own a Celtic shoppe here in Windsor Ont. and we import goods from Great Britain and Ireland. In mi-Feb our goods were seized in Toronto by Canada Customs and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) Their reasoning is non-French labelling on the goods. This petition is charging them with un-fair bi-lingual labelling practices. We have dicovered by our own investigation here in Windsor, that other ethnic groups who import goods from their home countries are being allowed to bring goods in withou either English or French labelling. This is pure discrimination against British products! We have started an in-store petition as well as the local pubs and have sent it off to other shoppes and pubs of our nature throughout Ontario. We have received fantastic results so far and we would like to have as many Brits help us in this venture as we can get! If we do not stop this, we simply will not be able to import goods from home without plenty of grief! Our local medis has been involved and it has hit the local newspapers and our fellow Brits have responded with great anger! Please help us in this cause, if the laws of the land are bi-lingual labelling, thne make it so for EVERY ETHNIC importer, not just British goods!!! Pleas sign the petition wherever you see it in Ontario and call your local MPP. Weare asking ALL Brits to stand fast with us and show this Government this will not be tolerated!!! This is DISCRIMINATION!!!!! Please help!!!
