A World Trade Organization panel rejected May 25 a procedural claim filed by Canada challenging dispute proceedings initiated by the European Union and Japan targeting alleged discriminatory sourcing requirements and illegal subsidies in Ontario’s Feed-In Tariff program. The panel rejected Canada’s charge that the EU and Japan failed to specify the nature and type of the subsidy at issue, the government or public body providing the subsidy, and how and to whom the subsidy was given. The panel is expected to issue its ruling on the complaints in September.
