United States trade group finds Canadian softwood hurts American market

"Today's ruling, though not unexpected, means that B.C. and Canadian forest companies must continue to pay unfair and unwarranted duties, to make US lumber companies and land owners even richer at the expense of Canadian exporters and American consumers and builders", Premier Horgan stated. The Commerce Department a month ago issued a final determination that Canada subsidizes its forestry industry and dumps lumber on the US market at unfairly low prices, and the department issued final tariffs of 20% or more, depending on which Canadian mill saws the lumber.

"We are confident that this latest decision by the ITC will again be reversed".

"Imports of underpriced, subsidized Canadian softwood lumber have hurt American mills, millworkers and rural communities in OR and across the country", Wyden said. International Trade Commission unanimously voted that Canadian exports have harmed the American lumber industry.

The Department of Commerce will now issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on such imports from Canada, the commission said.

Protecting lumber mills is aligned with Mr. Trump's "America first" trade policy, and lawmakers from timber-growing areas of the Southeast and Pacific Northwest have made it clear they support a tough line with Canada to protect American mill workers and timberland owners. Those fees are lower than fees paid on USA timber, which comes largely from private land.

Demand from US builders for lumber remains high and the additional cost is wrapped into the cost of new homes in the U.S.

Efforts to solve Canada's festering softwood lumber trade dispute with the United States suffered another blow Thursday after the U.S.
