International Trade Minister Stockwell Day is urging countries to follow "sound science," not fear, as more countries ban Canadian hog and pork products in the wake of the swine flu outbreak, the Winnipeg Sun reported. At least 10 countries, including China, Venezuela, Singapore, Ukraine, Croatia and the Philippines, moved to bar or restrict imports of Canadian pigs and meat after swine flu infected a herd of hogs on an Alberta farm. Canada's overseas diplomats are working with trade and import partners to promote Canadian pork and swine products.
