Trade war erupts in Arctic circle

Not quite sure how much impact this will have,

A member of Nunavut's government has proposed a ban on all liquor imported from Europe as a symbolic and retaliatory gesture against the continent for barring the sale of seal products from Canada.

South Baffin representative Fred Schell said he will propose a motion this week in the Nunavut legislature to stop the import of booze from the European Union into the territory's three liquor stores.

There again I do understand that the Eskimo/Inuit's are not impartial to the odd snifter. It reminds me of one of my favourite bad jokes.
Q: What's a seal's favorite drink?
A: Canadian Club on the rocks
