EDMONTON, Alt. – Hopes are high that an international review of Canada’s mad cow investigation will result in the lifting of the beef ban as early as this week.
A team of international animal health experts began arriving in Ottawa Friday to review Canada’s ongoing mad cow investigation.
The international panel, led by renowned Swiss veterinarian, Dr. Ulrich Khim, began their work Saturday and hope to complete their report and possible recommendations by the end of today.
Dr. Ron DeHaven, the U.S. department of Agriculture’s chief veterinarian, welcomed the arrival of the panel and agreed it would add validity to the Canadian investigation.
