Canadian beekeepers split over imports

The beekeeping community appears still split over the importation of queens from the USA which the federal government now allows after a 17 year ban. (See earlier post.)

While the president of the Alberta Beekeepers' Association says there's an optimism the industry can once again grow, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec are worried about the importation of disease and killer bee genes. The President of Ontario beekeepers says the Ontario government will continue to outlaw the import of American bees.
