Canada considers retaliation for US tariff on softwood lumber

5 May 2017 US & Canada

Canada is considering multiple trade actions against the US in response to tariffs on softwood lumber.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday he was considering banning US coal exports in response to the "unfair" tax on Canadian lumber.

The government is also looking at duties against several Oregon industries, the BBC has learnt.

Oregon has been one of the loudest supporters of an up to 24% tax on Canadian softwood lumber.

Mr Trudeau wrote to British Columbia (BC) premier Christy Clark to say that he was "carefully and seriously" considering trade action on coal exports. He said trade officials will explore next steps.

3. And here comes the war against Canada.

We have an election in 2019. I expect all this aggression towards us is part of the targeted anti-democracy campaign going on world-wide. Never thought we would have been tarred as some kind of enemy of the American worker.

He SERIOUSLY needs to be removed from office. This man is threatening the lives of the entire planet.
