  • Canada 'extremely disappointed' with U.S. decision to raise softwood lumber duty rate

    (Reuters) -The United States has decided to almost double the duties on Canadian softwood lumber from most producers to 17.9%, Canadian Trade Minister Mary Ng said on Wednesday, adding that Canada is "extremely disappointed." Ng said that the U.S. Department of Commerce on Wednesday issued the final results of the second administrative reviews of its anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders regarding certain softwood lumber products from Canada. “Canada is extremely disappointed that the United States has decided to increase the unfair duties it is imposing on Canadian softwood lumber from most producers to 17.9%," Ng said in a statement.

        This has been an issue for years. The tariff is a bit extreme though, like everything else Brandon is doing.

            I think softwood goes into paper products - like toilet paper.

                  A large part of framing is whitewood. Yellow Pine (SYP) is common for trusses, structural lumber, and especially treated lumber. Paper doesn't care what it is made from.

                    I'm at an impasse, both Biteme and Canada suck so I'll let them figure it out. My bet is they will both just use this as an excuse to raise tariffs, taxes, duties etc. "The US did this, so we're doing that, Canada did that so we're going to do this!". and so it goes.

                    Get ready to pay more either way.

                        LOL. Same price as other SPF lumber.

                        How the hell can they cut it, mill it, float it down the Rhine and across the ocean for that price???
