News in Review Softwood Dispute: Tariffs and Subsidies

Tariffs over softwood lumber were at the heart of this ongoing feud, which epitomizes the historical and often problematic economic relationship between Canada and the United States. Early in 2001, when a five-year agreement on the issue ended, the U.S. again threatened to slap high tariffs on the import of softwood lumber from Canada. Although essentially a debate over trees and the health of the lumber industry in the U.S., the dispute also led to concerns and threats in terms of a potential negative impact on other trade relations between the two countries.
