The issue for US and Canada's economic interests are certainly most important.
But it would be very unreasonnable to forget about the demonstrations and the political maelstrom which hit South Korean governement last year when it decided to resume imports of US beef.
It would be a very strong mistake for the US to twist the arms of Korean governement to resume imports from US of over 30 months beef.
This would cause a destablisation of the pro-US korean president at the very moment when North Korea is getting aggressive and increasing pressure (for wahtever reason that is ont the point here ) on South Korea
I think this would cost to the US influence in Korea in political terms much more than the Us farmers would win
