  SICE - WTO - CANADA - CERTAIN MEASURES CONCERNING PERIODICALS /A
Canada agrees with the Panel's conclusion that the "funded" postal rate scheme is a permissible subsidy in accordance with the terms and conditions of Article III:8(b) of the GATT 1994.
Canada asserts that the Panel's decision to consider Part V.1 of the Excise Tax Act as a measure subject to Article III of the GATT 1994 was based largely upon an unwarranted generalization of the terms of Article III:4, as well as a misconstruction of the word "indirectly" in Article III:2, first sentence.
Canada asserts that the United States' position is based on a difference of form, not substance, and that the specific form in which the subsidy is paid is irrelevant to the operation of Article III:8(b) of the GATT 1994.
