Canada and the U.S. need to work together to promptly hammer out a long-term solution equitable to all parties that will ensure a lasting and stable supply of lumber imports into the U.S. at a competitive price."
I'm not sure how this went from model building to lumber, but... The average US lumber supplier has been complaining about Canadian lumber dumping for years. This isn't meant to start anything with our Canadian model building friends. Its just meant to say that lumber price differentials are often far beyond a simple competitive advantage. You may wish to do some research on this issue and I think, very respectfully, after some reflection and serious research, that you'll see the other side of the argument. Again, this has been complained about FOR YEARS by us lumber manufacturers and US labor groups, so it isn't fair to simply blame the wealthy lumber barons.
Now, having said all of this that I'd rather have a trade issue with Canada than with China or Russia! Please, my Canadian friends, do not take what I have said as an insult. I am hugging my Steve Nuttall brass barrels in hope.
