Softwood Dispute Lumbers On

Trump has recently intensified trade disputes with Canada by announcing a new tariff ranging from 3% to 24% on Canadian lumber.

Canada’s lumber dispute with the U.S. broke out way back in 1982, when Pierre Elliott Trudeau was prime minister. This is round five of the dispute.

The cause of this unresolved dispute centers on where the lumber comes from. Most Canadian lumber is from Crown (government) land, whereas U.S. lumber is from private land. The U.S. has made the assumption that Canadians set royalties on public land low, resulting in an unfair subsidy.

Canada has won over Washington in key cases brought to the World Trade organization and NAFTA dispute panels, four previous times. These cycles of legal dispute-settlement panels take about five years to run its course.

The fourth round was settled by prime minister Stephen Harper in 2006 and this deal expired in 2015.
