WASHINGTON — Canada publicly has announced that it will appeal the U.S. Department of Commerce’s final results of the fourth annual review of the antidumping orders against unfairly traded lumber imports from Canada at the U.S. Court of International Trade. The Coalition views this as a welcome change in Canada’s approach to the trade case, since it traditionally insists on requesting a United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) panel for their appeals. “The Coalition has long believed that U.S. courts are the appropriate venue for resolving legal questions around the application of U.S. trade laws, and we are pleased that the Canadian parties have now agreed to pursue their claims before a U.S. judge,” said Andrew Miller, Chairman. “While the Coalition is continuing to evaluate its own issues for appeal, we look forward to defending the Department of Commerce’s antidumping determination as consistent with U.S. law,” added Miller.
