Well the Harpocrites have given the American protectionists a big stick with which to beat us with.
US lumber producers may use softwood deal money to sue Canada
A stick bought and paid for by us with illegal tarrifs,ouch.
But the pain doesn't stop there.....
The agreement includes a cap on Canada's share of the U.S. lumber market and a sliding tax triggered when the North American price falls below $355 US for a thousand board feet. UBS Investment Research analyst Jaret Anderson said "the fact Canadian producers will pay a larger export tax in a weak lumber market may be problematic for Canadian producers."Good in good times, but . . .
ouch, ouch, ohh stop the pain.
But at least the Harpocrites made this guy happy.....which was all that mattered to them......U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins yesterday called the softwood lumber deal the proof that Canada matters in Washington, and the precursor of a new era of co-operation between the two countries.US hails new era after deal
That's just adding insult to injury. Stop already. Oh the pain, the pain.
