La Jornada (Canada) - - ENGLISH SECTION -

Ca­na­dians tend to rally and sup­port spe­ci­fic sec­tors when the­se sec­tors are fa­ced with ad­ver­sity.

In 2003, du­ring the mad cow cri­sis in which the cattle in­dustry took a $7-bi­llioin hit, Ca­na­dians sho­wed their lo­ve for Ca­na­dian beef, so much so that Ca­na­da be­ca­me ing their farms be­cau­se of the mad cow mess. But the pu­blic tends to react to things that are front of mind and that af­fect them di­rectly.
