OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday that his government is taking China’s expanded ban on imports of Canadian canola “very seriously” and is looking at sending a delegation to China to address safety concerns.

China expanded a ban on Canadian canola imports on Tuesday to include shipments from Viterra Inc, the latest development in a wider trade dispute between the two countries.
