Bloomberg recently reported that the lumber producers contend the 21% duties on Canadian softwood lumber imports severely damaged their U.S. investments, and therefore breaches a provision of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Bloomberg further reported that U.S. officials contend that upholding the claim would open a Pandora’s Box by lending legitimacy to any potential subsidy claim.
