US Department of Commerce seeks to double softwood lumber duty

The U.S. DoC concluded that Canadian imports are “heavily subsidized and dumped into the U.S. market by issuing a combined anti-subsidy and anti-dumping rate of 18.32 per cent.”

Feds: U.S. plan to double softwood lumber duties will ‘hurt’ on both sides of border

In a statement, Mary Ng, minister of small business, export promotion and international trade, said the hike in rates is “entirely unjustified and will hurt consumers, businesses and workers on both sides of the border.”

BC gov: increased US softwood lumber duties would increase cost of housing, construction

“These unfair U.S. duties have been compounding the costs for construction, resulting in rising housing costs on both sides of the border. If the duties go up even more, so will the cost of housing and construction,” said B.C. Minister of Forests Katrine Conroy and B.C. Minister of State for Trade George Chow in a statement.

BC Lumber Trade Council: US Department of Commerce preliminary rate decision ‘egregious’

The proposed increase in rates is “particularly egregious given lumber prices are at a record high and demand is skyrocketing in the U.S. as families across the country look to repair, remodel and build new homes,” said Susan Yurkovich, president of the BC Lumber Trade Council.
