Once again, the Harper government is selling Canada, now to the American standards. Let's keep our metric system which exists in 97% of the world. May the US stop dominating and controlling our economy and culture. Canadians will benefit with lower taxes and and identity which we are slowly losing.

RE: Canadian food processors fear massive job loss
..... It's unlikely that the number of j0bs depends on what language etc, exporters put on the labels of their products. Job numbers depend on the total amount of buying by their customers per unit of time.
..... They should keep labels as they are now for products sold in Canada, but change the labels (individual language, measurement units, greetings, etc.) on exported products to maximize buying of Canadian products in those countries.

..... As I seem to remember it, it's probably the Provinces/Territories that regulate labeling, NOT the Federal government. However competition and proper cleanliness related to food products seem to be a Federal government responsibility. Also weights and measures.
..... There is a need for more jobs in Canada; therefore Harper is doing what he can to stimulate the buying of more Canadian products by people in other countries. Contrary to popular beliefs it's all of the customers of firms who pay, as part of the prices, the wages and salaries of employees, not the employers!
