Canada opens WTO case against punitive U.S. duties on softwood lumber imports

OTTAWA, Ont. - Canada's Foreign Trade Ministry says it formally requested World Trade Organization (WTO) consultations with the United States concerning the U.S. Department of Commerce’s recent final anti-dumping and countervailing duty determinations on imports of certain softwood lumber products from Canada.
 
"The U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision to impose punitive anti-dumping and countervailing duties on Canadian softwood lumber producers is unfair, unwarranted and deeply troubling," the Ministry said in a statement.
