Canada will appeal last week’s decision by the World Trade Organization (WTO) which ruled to allow the United States to use “zeroing” to calculate anti-dumping tariffs, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement on Monday.
“We firmly believe that the U.S. duties on Canadian softwood lumber are unfair and unwarranted,” Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement to Reuters. “That is why we are challenging these duties at the WTO and under NAFTA.”
