Toronto

City council did not vote Thursday on whether to appeal a judge’s November ruling that overturned council’s sweeping ban  on the sale, possession or consumption of shark fin products. Instead, council voted 39-3 to ask the city manager to report back in June on any “adverse consequences” on Torontonians from the “depletion of any oceanic species used as food sources,” including sharks.
