Who knew Trump would go after Canada?

Who knew Trump would go after Canada?

In fact, prices have risen about 30 per cent in the last three months in anticipation of expected American tariffs, Interfor president and CEO Duncan Davies said Tuesday during a news conference hosted by the B.C. Lumber Trade Council.

The tariff is set at 19.88 percent on the softwood lumber imports, which is the fourth largest export from Canada to the United States following oil, gas and vehicles. "Everyone thinks of Canada being wonderful, and so do I - I love Canada - but they have outsmarted our politicians for many years".

The president first criticized Canada's actions early last week during a visit to Wisconsin and vowed the USA would "stand up for our dairy farmers", stating his administration would be "reporting back sometime over the next two weeks", CNN reported.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned Tuesday that Canada and the USA could suffer a "thickening" border as the Trump administration imposes new tariffs on softwood lumber and trade tensions between the two countries escalate.

The two neighbors have had other big trade wars - in the 1930s, the US Congress imposed tariffs against all countries to protect jobs.

Sanders says the duties could help stabilize Montana's timber market and lead to fewer sawmill layoffs across the state.

Senate Confirms Ex-Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue As Agriculture Secretary
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY also talked to Trump about the dairy issue last week in a rare phone call between the two men.

"Northern Ontario's forest industry sustains thousands of good, middle-class jobs in communities across our region", say Patty Hajdu (Thunder Bay-Superior North and Canada's labour minister), and Don Rusnak (Thunder Bay-Rainy River).

Ross told Reuters in a telephone interview that Canada was "already retaliating" against the United States well ahead of the lumber duties by restricting imports of USA highly filtered milk protein products used by cheese makers.

Asked whether this was linked to the sparring over dairy products, Ross said the investigation into Canadian lumber predates that spat.

In a statement, he said the need for the lumber duties and Canada's dairy restriction were "not our idea of a properly functioning free trade agreement". A report in the Toronto Star on Monday evening said Canada did not immediately plan to retaliate. The problem is worse.

"It reflects what is going to happen with the trade relationships for the USA and its neighbor", said Sireen Harajli, FX strategist at Mizuho in NY.

Canadian officials rejected the White House's assertions that its lumber industry is unfairly subsidized and urged the Trump administration to negotiate a settlement.

He was 23 for 67 (.343) with nine extra-base hits (four doubles, five home runs) and a 1.055 OPS in 18 games for the OKC Dodgers. On Tuesday, the Dodgers took a step toward helping their situation by promoting top prospect Cody Bellinger to the majors.

Ottawa has talked with the provinces about helping Canada's forestry sector, but won't move immediately once the USA imposes duties on softwood lumber imports, a government source says.

Resolute, the Canadian lumber firm, denied it is subsidized.

However, US lumber companies are satisfied with the decision, following Trump's pledge to put America first.

If confirmed, the tariffs would then have to be approved by the US International Trade Commission (USITC).

Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a joint statement that Canada "disagrees strongly" with what they called "an unfair and punitive duty". "It means we're going to start doing lumber in our country, it's going to mean that farmers are now going to start selling milk in our country, instead of buying Canadian milk".
