Wisconsin dairy farmers face spoiling market, tight deadline

The President said Canada has been "very unfair" to the United States and that the lumber issue falls under NAFTA, a trade agreement he wants to reform.

TORONTO, April 25 Shares in Canadian lumber companies soared on Tuesday as new US tariffs on softwood imports came in at the low end of what some investors were expecting in the face of protectionist rhetoric from the Trump administration.

President Trump addressed that issue earlier Tuesday in a tweet, saying, "Canada has made business for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin and other border states very hard".

"We're also going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin", Trump told the crowd. "It's a disgrace", Trump said in the Oval Office last week, as the President welcomed union leaders, steel workers and CEOs of steel companies for the signing of the memorandum ordering an investigation into steel dumping.

"Initially we said "hold off" but the evidence is mounting that over the next few years things are going to be in flux".

U-S Customs said yesterday that duties would be collected retroactively for all softwood lumber imports during the previous 90 days.

"I wasn't aware that he was", Ross said as reporters laughed.

When it was pointed out that dairy and lumber aren't part of the free-trade agreement, Ross replied: "That's one of the problems". "That doesn't mean they don't have to play by the rules".

A day after the U.S. Commerce Department hit softwood lumber imports with duties ranging from three to 24 per cent, the B.C. Lumber Trade Council warns the decision could lead to job losses in British Columbia.

Ujczo says it is "imperative" that the Trudeau government look at the NAFTA renegotiation in a new way.

The tariffs, which are expected to be in place early next week, are considered a threat to Canada's lumber industry and Canadian trade with the U.S.as a whole.

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus says President Donald Trump's flexibility on immediate funding for a border wall is putting Democrats in an awkward spot during the fight to keep the government open.

As the Globe and Mail explains, technological advances improving the filtering of milk allowed American dairy producers to send products to Canada while avoiding the country's milk tariff. Thanks to a shift in Canada's tariff structure that will increase prices on milk products manufactured in the United States, the dairy industry here and in Wisconsin in particular finds itself in dire straits.

The Canadian government has also been reaching out to allies throughout the U.S. Federal ministers have been fanning across the country, meeting Americans who benefit from cross-border trade.

The U.S. lumber industry alleges Canadian wood is heavily subsidized and that imports are harming American mills and workers.

NAHB put out a release that denounced the decision, saying it will harm American homebuyers, consumers and businesses while failing to resolve the underlying trade dispute between the two nations. No more than 1,500 people now work directly on the logging side, he said, but they supply paper and lumber mills with a total workforce of around 40,000, he said.
