Softwood Lumber-Horgan

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              B-C’s premier says a new Canada-U-S softwood lumber deal could come as early as next month.
              John Horgan’s comments came during a conference call from Washington, D-C, where he has been meeting with American trade officials and Canada’s ambassador to the U-S.
              Horgan says he stressed the need for an agreement that’s fair to British Columbia, which is Canada’s largest exporter of softwood lumber.
              The 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement between Canada and the U-S expired in late 2015 and the Trump administration earlier this year imposed tariffs and duties averaging 27 per cent against Canadian softwood producers.
