The Council of Canadians is urging Ontario to defy a World Trade Organization ruling against the Green Energy Act.

The WTO has upheld a previous ruling that local content quotas in the Green Energy Act violate global trade rules.

The council is encouraging the province to stand by its renewable energy policy and, if necessary, ignore the WTO decision in the interests of sustainable development.

Spokesman Stuart Trew says combining job creation and environmental priorities is the definition of sustainable development.
