Despite efforts by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), to ban commercial imports of Arba Minim for hundreds of thousands of Canadian Jews, as reported HERE, The Jewish Hasidic Council of Quebec (CJHQ) reported that the issue has been resolved.
“Baruch Hashem, there is no ban on imports of Dalat Minim,” the CJHQ said in the statement they issued, “and Beseyata Dishmaya, Canadian Jews will have their Dalat Minim the same as every year.”
The CJHQ reported that they have been in touch with officials on several levels in the Federal government to resolve the situation.
The efforts of Rachel Ben Dayan, a Canadian member of parliament, proved especially helpful along with the efforts of askanim in resolving the situation, which, according to the CJHQ occurred due to a misclassification of goods at customs. The misclassification has since been clarified, which resolved the emergency.
