“BC Lumber Trade Council welcomes the Government of Canada’s decision to go to the World Trade Organization [WTO] to file a challenge against the U.S. Department of Commerce’s final determinations on anti-dumping and countervailing duties on softwood lumber.

These lumber duties are unfair and completely without merit. U.S. Department of Commerce’s practices in their investigation into Canadian lumber have been ruled illegal by the WTO in the past and we expect to be successful again in seeking that the U.S. comply with international trade rules.”

– Susan Yurkovich, President, BC Lumber Trade Council
