The long Canadian lumber dispute

There are concerns that President Trump's new tariff on Canadian lumber imports could jack up the prices of newly built homes. Most have centered around the import of Canadian softwood lumber, with others around dairy. USA dairy farmers say the new accord has cost Wisconsin and NY companies millions of dollars.

Kayne said the company is well-positioned given that it has improved its balance sheet in recent quarters, adding that he also sees organic growth opportunities worth up to $300 million by 2018.

"To me, the mystery is in the inability for elite opinion in Canada to address the possibility that perhaps part of the problem lies on our side of the border".

The United States, Canada, and Mexico are expected to start renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was signed in 1992 and defines trade between the countries. -Canada trade dispute or boost the US economy. "And we're not going to put up with it", Trump said during a round table Tuesday with farmers Trump. -Canada softwood lumber dispute and threatening and then unthreatening to blow up NAFTA because he just wants to have done something in his first hundred days in office.

NDP Leader John Horgan was quick to accuse Clark of sitting on her hands for the past months instead of ensuring a new agreement was negotiated before Trump could unleash some kind of protectionist action. Canadian dairy farmers complained about the cheap imports coming across the border.

However, when Canada' s supply management was introduced in the late 1960's, it had 140,000 dairy farms.

For Pleasant River Lumber, Brochu said that the announcement of countervailing duties made the timing right for an expansion.


Hence the complaints by Wisconsin farmers who caught Trump's ear.

On 24 April, the US Department of Commerce (DOC) stipulated provisional countervailing duty (CVD) of 19.88% on the invoice value of Canadian deliveries of softwood lumber and wood products to the USA.

-Canada issue Ottawa needs to focus on going forward?

The move was prompted by a trade petition from the US lumber industry arguing that Canadian lumber exporters have been flooding the American market with cheap wood subsidized by the Canadian government in the form of access to public timberlands. "The issue won't go away unless we adopt a more market-based way of setting stumpage fees off crown land and end restrictions on export of raw logs".

By working together - government and industry, workers and communities - we can take on the challenges ahead, set the stage for further opportunity, and foster good, well-paying middle-class jobs for generations to come.

So what is it about Softwood Lumber Trade Dispute V: The Empire Strikes Big League that has us all up in soft, woody arms?

"Talking tough will rile the average Canadian and make it harder for Trudeau to make concessions".
