Canada savs such incentives are a violation of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the international pad aimed at reducing harriers lo world trade. Some economists have ex- pressed fear that U.S. parent companies will close up Cana- dian operations and pull back home to take advantage of the tax breaks under DISC. Mr. Hees also asked whether the government will institute a round of meetings to sound out the provinces, business and labor representatives on possi- ble ways to counter the U.S. ac- tion. Mr. Trudeau said Ihc govern- ment has held meetings with these three groups in recent weeks. The DISC possibility had been discussed.
