Canada Moves Toward Retaliation after COOL Decision

Canada will begin preparing for retaliation now that the World Trade Organization has ruled in favor of Canada and Mexico on country of origin labeling. Canadian Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz said that Canada will “start the work toward retaliation during the same window of opportunity for U.S. corrective action. If they don’t take advantage to correct this, then we will use that same window of opportunity to get that retaliatory list in place.” Canada released a preliminary list earlier this year that covered both agriculture and non-agriculture products that would be considered for tariffs at approximately $1 billion. Mexico will release its list of products for retaliation at later date.
