Melillo pushes action after softwood lumber tariffs double

Melillo pushes action after softwood lumber tariffs double

Question Period Ottawa

OTTAWA, ONTARIO  ~~~  November 26, 2021  (LSNews) In Question Period Friday, Kenora riding MP Eric Melillo pressed the government to stand up for Canadian workers against US protectionism.

Less than a week after the Prime Minister met with President Biden, the US announced they will be doubling tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber, threatening forestry jobs in Northern Ontario and across the country.

“Either the Prime Minister doesn’t care to stand up for Canadian workers, or he’s incapable of delivering results,” MP Melillo stated in the House of Commons. “The government has said that they have raised this issue with the US Administration, so why isn’t the President taking them seriously?”

The Hon. Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, responded that the government is pursuing litigation under CUSMA.

“The Liberal government has repeatedly failed to get the US to back down on their damaging protectionist policies,” Melillo stated afterward. “Canadian forestry workers have been suffering under unstable conditions and crushing tariffs for years, and this government needs to get serious about pushing back.”
