“Dangerous” negotiations for Canada – the second wave of softwood lumber duties

As far as the U.S. Commerce Department is going to reveal anti-dumping duties on imports from Canada, another pack of complications could appear for the softwood lumber producers.

High stakes for trade agreements between the United States and Canada could rise again.

Cyndee Todgham Cherniak, an international trade lawyer with LexSage Professional Corporation said that one could not get any leverage for NAFTA negotiations, regardless of whether there were any evidences of unfair trade.

In order to lead to a position where Canada would have to concede, it is obligatory to have anti-dumping and countervailing duties.
