The Canadian government has released a statement in response to the submission of the amended mandatory Country of Origin Labeling rule to the World Trade Organization.

Two high-ranking Canadian ministers claim the U.S. government continues  unfair trade practices that damage Canada's economy, despite WTO rulings.

They say the Canadian government is extremely disappointed that the U.S. is upholding COOL, and they are set to launch the next phase of the WTO dispute settlement process on the rule.

To that end, they've released a list of U.S. commodities for possible retaliation, including beef, pork, chicken and a wide range of grains.
