BDS Fail: Feds and LCBO lift ban on Israeli wines

After a week-long ban on the sale of two Israeli wines produced in the West Bank — in a style eerily reminiscent of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement — the Canadian government and LCBO backtracked late Thursday afternoon.

A mealy-mouthed statement from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency — which instituted the ban on the wines imported from Psagot and Shiloh Wineries — claimed they had not fully considered the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement in what they called their “wine labelling assessment.”
