In the press:
Richard Blackwell opened his article in the Globe with "Canada will appeal..."
The article quotes a Stuart Trew of some council of some Canadians to opine:
If there is no way to provide incentives for green energy in a free market system, “there is little hope of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and addressing the climate crisis...”The ruling on local content has little relevance to the provision of renewable energy. Japan's successful complaint was about procuring Ontario manufactured renewable energy - not about procuring renewable energy.
The European Commissions welcomed the ruling by stating it wants to export product to Ontario.
John Bennett, of a rumoured Sierra Club in Canada, is interviewed:
... it is ironic that Japan and the EU were the source of the complaints, because they use subsidies and support for their solar and wind industries. He said he would advise the next premier of Ontario to ignore the ruling “like the Prime Minister is ignoring the Kyoto Protocol.The Prime Minister that ignored the Kyoto Protocol is the one that initially signed it. The current Prime Minister gave it all the attention required to withdraw from it.
