Competition Policy in Free Trade Agreements- NAFTA Chapter 15 Decision in UPS Canada is Out

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

In what I believe is the first publicly known dispute involving a competition policy chapter in a trade agreement, a three person NAFTA panel ruled against UPS Canada in its dispute with Canada Post.  This decision shows some of the limitations of using trade based reasoning in competition issues.  Note the interesting dissent of Ron Cass.  The decision is available here.
