Taking on North Korea

Canada will increase its trade and investment restrictions against North Korea and will deny high-level North Korean officials from travelling here, the Prime Minister's Office said over the weekend. The move comes after an international investigation that included three Canadians concluded that North Korea was responsible for attacking and sinking a South Korean ship on March 26, which claimed the lives of 46 sailors. Canada has thrown its support behind South Korean President Lee Myung Bak's announcement that he plans to take the case to the United Nations.
