    I didn't deny that's what Canada is doing. The specific numbers may be suspect because that's Trump info and his admin lies all the time.
    *Edited by bdtex* WE as well do this with various goods and services.....to protect our industries, our economy. That's why we have trade deals so every member can benefit in the main.

    Yes they do. It's the same thing the Chinese do with steel and aluminum. It's long overdue we have a president willing to stand up, not bow down.

    But you don't know if I understand it or not, assume I don't, and levy an insult.
    I do understand.


    I do report your response as well.

    The meme that it's nothing but trump. Fact is, and you acknowledge, they have dealt unfairly as relates lumber. They undercut the market by subsidizing pricing. Ergo..tariffs are an appropriate response..

    Pretty interesting stuff. This trade dispute has been going since the 1980's. Impartial arbiters at the WTO and NAFTA have repeatedly found it not to be an illegal subsidy.

    In Trumplandia, Obama wrongfully bowed to other national leaders allied with the USA where bowing is customary, but Trump most righteously saluted a vicious North Korean general.

    ;-)

    Trump: 1+1=2

    Liberal you: Trump is lying

    I hope that you can get past the hate you have and find love and compassion for your fellow man even if your caucus that tells you what to say does allow for it.

    The US contend's that Canada's forestry management system constitutes a subsidy. Canada says it's not. WTO and NAFTA have ruled favorably to Canada.

    Your link shows that lumber dispute was under negotiation already during the Obama admin ?

    Trump opted for war instead.
