U.S. trade commission kills duties placed on Canadian newsprint:

https://globalnews.ca/news/4416179/n...fs-overturned/

Quote:
The U.S. International Trade Commission has overturned the duties imposed on Canadian newsprint by the U.S. Commerce Department earlier this year.

The five commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday that imports from Canada of uncoated groundwood paper, used for newspapers, commercial printing and book publishing, do not injure U.S. industry.

The U.S. Commerce Department had imposed anti-dumping and countervailing duties of various levels on Canadian producers including Resolute Forest Product, Catalyst Paper Corp., Kruger Inc., and White Birch Paper.

Yup. The US lost another one. It's no wonder they want to get rid of the dispute mechanism teeth for NAFTA, by claiming sovereignty.

Canada can't let up on this one, since what good is a trade agreement if any country just does what it wants and claims sovereignty. I think we all know which country would abuse this.

I can think of nothing stupider than agreeing to have disputes heard only in US courts.

And I'm a little worried about what will happen to the dairy industry. I don't think we should be making any deals with a temporary president who is off his rocker. I'd rather see if we can wait it out.

Agreed. The Idiot in Chief is a temporary situation. Also the American arrogance that somehow our supply management system must be destroyed and follow their failed system is...well infuriating.

And your map looks like there's enough fuel to burn until a Canadian team wins the Cup again. (Sorry. The devil made me say that.)

Article dated August 16:

Tariff War Makes EU Turn to Canada for Corn Demand

Quote:
According to data from the Canadian agricultural department, corn exports to western European countries surged 85 percent year on year during the nine months from September 1, 2017, the start of a corn marketing year in Canada, and are estimated to amount to 1.2 million tonnes in the 2017/18 year, the biggest figure since 2013/14.
Quote:
Its shipments to Europe have continued to ramp up, however, as a result of reduced freight costs and a Canada-European Union free trade agreement that came into effect in 2017, allowing Canadian corn to enter Europe without tariff.

European imposition of tariffs against U.S. corn in June have further encouraged Canada-EU corn trade
Quote:
“The retaliatory EU tariffs on U.S. corn would naturally take the U.S. out of the picture,” one German trader said.
