“Canadian coal miners balk at export ban announcement” by Taylor Kuykendall, S&P Global Market Intelligence

S&P Global Market Intelligence quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer Clifford Sosnow in an article on coal export ban.

"This sets off a very sensitive political conversation in addition to the legal issues that arise from it," noted Clifford Sosnow, a lawyer and co-chair of the international trade and investment group with Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP. Sosnow said he is watching as to whether the ban will properly use international trading rules but had not yet seen analysis on how that might work.

"The truth is, this announcement is flying under the radar," Sosnow said. "For those that are interested in it, it's extremely important. It's going to have a significant local impact."
