VIDEO: A legal perspective on Canada's commercial seal hunt and its WTO challenge

Last week I shared a video overview from the first seal ban hearing at World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The dispute process is very complicated so I invited our trade advisor, Hannes Schloemann to share his perspective and further explain.

Hannes is a trade lawyer based in Geneva who works with WTO rules on a daily basis and follows most trade disputes.

According to his expert opinion the EU has a strong case and can defend the ban on the grounds of public morality.

We’ll keep you posted.
