U.S. slaps new tariff on Canadian lumber imports

The U.S. Department of Commerce imposed tariffs on Canadian softwood imports after trade talks on U.S. milk exports fell through.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the taxes announced Monday evening were being imposed after trade negotiations between the two countries failed to produce a positive outcome for the United States.

“It has been a bad week for U.S.-Canada trade relations,” Ross said in a statement.

Donald Trump turned to Twitter this morning to support Wisconsin dairy farmers who have been seriously hurt by Canada’s oppressive milk import tariffs that were implemented in NAFTA.

Some U.S. milk exports into Canada face tariffs as high as 292% and recent talks between the two countries failed to remove the unfair taxation.

The U.S. tariffs on Canadian softwood exports will range from 3% to 24%.
