The British Columbia government decided to fight against softwood lumber duties
Premier John Horgan re-affirmed his commitment recently to stand-up for British Columbia workers, families and communities in light of the latest development in the softwood lumber dispute. The United States Department of Commerce has announced its final determination of duties of 20.83 per cent to be applied to the majority of Canadian softwood lumber shipments entering the U.S. About half of Canada`s softwood lumber exports to the United States originate from British Columbia, and the United States is British Columbia`s largest market for softwood lumber products. Over the past year, high lumber prices have helped to mitigate the impact of the softwood lumber duties on B.C. companies. British Columbia will be supporting the federal government in appealing the U.S. Department of Commerce`s findings. The appeals cannot be filed until after the U.S. International Trade Commission issues its determination in December. British Columbia`s forest sector is an integral part of a sustainable economy. In 2016, the B.C. forest sector supported 60,000 direct jobs and one in four manufacturing jobs. The B.C. government is committed to working with communities and industry to create more B.C. jobs from every tree harvested in B.C. Source: http://www.clearwatertimes.com
