South Korea has banned Canadian beef ever since BSE was first found in Canada in 2003 and the Canadians say that is enough.

Ag Minister Gerry Ritz flew to Seoul to deliver the message personally so "nothing was lost in translation.” Ritz told Reuters if the South Koreans want to remain honorable in the eyes of the world they must live up to WTO requirements.
