Glenora’s coming home

Our Nova Scotia correspondent Mark Macneill has kindly alerted Scots Law News to the Supreme Court of Canada's reversal of the controversial previously noted decision of the Federal Court not to allow the Glenora Distillery to register "Glen Breton" as a trade mark for its whisky products.

The decision of the Supreme Court was published on 11 June 2009 and reported in the Cape Breton Post the following day, and we meantime refer our readers to this report.  In the Year of Homecoming, we feel the decision is probably to be given a slainte, and we await with interest an opportunity for a celebratory tasting.
