Canadian Leader Responds To Lumber Tariffs Imposed By The US

Miranda GreerApr 29, 2017

We will not stand for this.

Yurkovich says they are confident that Canadian lumber producers have done nothing wrong and if need be they are willing to go to the world trade courts.

"We're certainly in an area now that I'm glad we are with all the uncertainties that are going on everywhere". "They believe this is the only way to keep David Ricardo in his grave".

What's different this time is the "economic nationalism" at the heart of the administration.

Freeland, speaking to reporters on a conference call, also said the United States should treat Canada with respect, given that Canada is a major supplier of softwood. "They are used to dairy and softwood being continuing irritants" in relations with the United States.

It's not the first time this has happened. It had brought us all 10 mercifully splinter-free years. "But I claim no expertise in Canadian politics". The loonie traded at 73.8 US cents.

"If Nafta were functioning properly, you wouldn't be having these kinds of very prickly and unfortunate events back to back", Mr Ross said. The Canadian officials called the subsidy allegations "baseless and unfounded".

It may take homebuilders up to six months to feel the financial impact of the Trump administration's recently announced tariff on Canadian softwood lumber imported into the U.S.

"In ruling after ruling since 1983, global tribunals have disproved the unfounded subsidy and injury allegations from the USA industry", Carr and Freeland said in a joint statement.

"But of course, just like the cyclical star locusts of Omega 7, the matter didn't stay solved for long". "Those duties are going to add up, put a real crimp on their ability to operate competitively in the USA market".

"I won't say I am relieved because we still have the anti-dumping tariffs further on", French told the Tribune Tuesday.

"Lumber IV: A New Kerfuffle burst onto the scene in 2001 and slowly wound its way through numerous WTO and NAFTA disputes before, at last, ending in the aforementioned 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement". The lumber dispute between the United States and Canada is a long-running dispute, where talks broke off last summer without an agreement.

The trade tensions this week are over a tiny portion of the US-Canada trade relationship.

Democratic Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken of Minnesota celebrated the lumber tariffs, calling them "welcome relief" for workers and rural communities in their state. In America, the producers typically own their logs and must price and produce according to market conditions.

Some unions warn as many as 25,000 people could lose their jobs in Canada if the duties stay in place.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with United States President Donald J. Trump. We lose employment, people leave. This might be the first U.S.
