UPDATE: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a response on Thursday regretting the outcome of the wine labelling assessment that led to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s (LCBO) response regarding products from two wineries labelled as “Product of Israel”.

They said that in their assessment, they did not fully consider the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement (CIFTA).

“Further clarification of the CIFTA (Article 1.4.1b) indicates that these wines adhere to the agreement and therefore we can confirm that the products in question can be sold as currently labelled,” a spokesperson said in a press release.

The CFIA will be following up with the LCBO to correct their original response.

Well it was written by an advisor to LCBO. I googled him - some professor at local law school. So either it's just some initiative by activist or an attempt at a sort of "dear colleagues" letter that they did in USA with Title IX.

Подумалось-вспомнилось в качестве параллели.
Израильские продукты бойкотят по формальному признаку "оккупанты".
А Тиллерсон недавно поздравил турков с тем, что год назад они отстояли демократию от путчистов,­ — тоже ведь формализмом отдаёт.
В обоих случаях, если смотреть на ситуацию не формально, а по сути, то её содержание оказывается иным вплоть до противоположного. Вот боюсь предполагать: они это серьёзно? прикалываются? сволочной интерес так упаковывают? опять «хитрый план»?.. Первый вариант, конечно, самый трагический.
