Canada has fired off a challenge at the World Trade Organization to the United States' protectionism.

It says the way the U.S. has applied anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties is not allowed under the World Trade Organization's rules and trade agreements.

Canada has cited not only its own experiences, but also ones between the U.S. and China, India, Brazil and the European Union,  a total of almost 200 examples.

The complaint was filed in December and fills 32 pages.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the Canadian move could backfire because many of the trade actions were against China and dismantling those trade barriers could result in a flood of imports that would displace Canadian products.

The province is giving $24 million to the largest Chinese investment in Canadian agriculture.

It is eventually expected to increase Ontario dairy milk production by seven per cent per year.

The Chinese baby-formula company is building a $225-million plant at Kingston, which will create 280 new jobs over the next five years.

The 280,000 sq. ft. plant will make baby formula from cow and goat milk.

The company estimates it will need 220-250-million litres of cow milk per year.
