Canadian support for importation of US queens

The plan to re-open the Canadian borders to US-bred queens also has its Canadian supporters:
An emotional, politically-connected group of beekeepers have been using unsubstantiated, unscientific, irrational alarmist arguments to deny essential supplies of queens and package bees, not only to their own region, but also to all of Canada.
Dick Allen, a beekeeper and cattle producer in Alberta, is urging Canadian beekeepers to support the renewal of queen importation.
