Pilfered Pumpkins

By Fadi Didi

Here's a timely story about pilfered pumpkins.

Police in Wayne, New Jersey are searching for four people caught on surveillance video stealing nearly two hundred pumpkins from a family-run farm.
     
The thieves hit the Farms View Roadstand on Tuesday, loading a van three times.
     
The crop is worth more than two-thousand dollars and the Kuehm family is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

After seven years of negotiations, and almost derailing last week, the free-trade deal between Canada and the European Union has finally been signed.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined European leaders in Brussels Sunday to formally sign the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, known as CETA.

Trudeau says the deal will provide new, better paying jobs for Canadians, leading to real and meaningful economic growth.

The Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance (CAFTA) is applauding the Federal Government for signing the
deal.

Brian Innes says seeing Canada's largest trade agreement since NAFTA get signed is a bright light for agri-food exporters.

Thirty ranches near a military base in southeastern Alberta are currently under quarantine as food safety officials test for bovine tuberculosis.
    
The disease is carried by elk, and there is a herd of about seven thousand living on Canadian Forces Base Suffield.
    
In September U-S food inspectors detected the disease in one animal that had been shipped into that country for slaughter.
    
Officials at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced October 19th that they had placed the herd on one property in Alberta under quarantine for further testing.
    
An agency spokesman says the animal in question came from a ranch near Jenner, about 100 kilometres northwest of Medicine Hat, which is next to the base.
