The Canadian Pork Council is urging Canadians to eat more pork to help producers cope with the economic impact of the H1N1 influenza outbreak.

Council chairman applauds the Canadian, American and Mexican governments for working together to get international borders reopened to North American pork.

He says the Philippines, now that it has more information about the virus, will announce an immediate resumption of Canadian pork imports and he is hopeful other countries will follow suit.
