U.S. makes early finding of injury from some softwood lumber from Canada
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Friday it had made a preliminary finding of injury from certain softwood lumber products from Canada.
The finding, made in a statement, follows an announcement on Dec. 16 that the commission was starting antidumping duty and countervailing duty investigations into the imports, after a petition from an association representing a group of U.S. lumber companies.
The action reignites a long-standing trade dispute between the two nations that in the past resulted in the United States imposing billions of dollars in tariffs on the widely used building products.
