Canada tightens sanctions on DPRK

According to the Vancouver Sun:

Canada has tightened sanctions against North Korea to punish the secretive Asian nation for “aggressive actions” such as the sinking of a South Korean corvette, the foreign ministry said on Monday.

Canada will ban all exports, imports and new investment as well as outlawing the provision of financial services and technical data to North Korea. Humanitarian efforts and the supply of food and medical supplies are not included.

The sanctions are largely symbolic since bilateral trade last year was just C$12.4 million ($12.7 million), according to Statistics Canada data.

No doubt CanKor will have more to say on this in the near future.
