Plunkett: Canada will take EU to WTO

Canada is threatening to take the European Union to the World Trade Organization in a bid to protect the oilsands industry.
The threat is contained in a letter which was written in December by David Plunkett, Canada’s ambassador to the European Union.
European nations are preparing to vote this week on a directive that would single out crude from the oilsands as dirty oil, with a much higher carbon footprint than conventional oil.
