Canada is expanding its complaint against U.S. sanctions.

The Canadian government has ratcheted up its trade dispute with the United States and is challenging Washington’s use of anti-subsidy and anti-dumping duties in its latest dispute filed with the WTO.
The complaint was filed Dec. 20, but just published this week.
In this latest volley, the Canadian government is challenging nearly 200 examples of alleged wrongdoing, including “unfair” U.S. duties against Canadian softwood lumber producers.
According to its WTO filing, Canada alleges that: “The United States purports to implement adverse WTO recommendations and rulings concerning US anti-dumping and countervailing measures, but does so in a manner that is not compliant with its WTO obligations.”
Most recently, Canada initiated a specific softwood-lumber complaint with WTO.
“The US decision to impose punitive anti-dumping and countervailing duties on Canadian softwood lumber producers is unfair, unwarranted and deeply troubling,” the Canadian government said in a statement.
“We will forcefully defend Canada’s softwood lumber industry.”
