 1989 Report of the Auditor General of Canada - Chapter 10
Under the procedural provisions of the Canada Elections Act, responsibility for the management of the electoral machinery is shared among Elections Canada, the government, and the political parties represented in the House of Commons.
Conceivably, Elections Canada may find itself in the same position it was in before the November 1988 general election: again faced with training two sets of returning officers; planning two different sets of electoral districts; and converting two sets of laws into the necessary detailed instructions.
Furthermore, at the July 1989 conference, all jurisdictions agreed to a proposal put forward by Elections Canada to organize a number of consultative committees on specific issues such as, fees paid to and terms of employment of returning officers and the development of computerized mapping systems.

Canada is seeking the elimination of all export subsidies as quickly as possible; the elimination or substantial reduction of trade-distorting domestic support such as price supports and ceilings; substantial improvements in market access for all agricultural and food products; as well as strict sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) standards that rely exclusively on objective scientific data.

Canada stated that prior to implementation of the amendment, the United States imposed no federal size limits on the importation of Canadian lobster as long as it could be shown by bills of lading that the lobster were caught legally in Canada.
Canada contended that the 1989 amendment is a disguised restriction on international trade, adopted in response to the perception in the U.S. Congress that American lobstermen were at a competitive disadvantage.
Canada stated that the 1989 amendment was not directed at the catch in United States waters and did nothing to add to the conservation measure already in place.
