    Canada Requests WTO Panel to Review U.S. Implementation in Softwood Lumber Dumping Case - Government of Canada Newsroom
    International Trade Minister Jim Peterson announced today that Canada requested on May 19 the establishment of a World Trade Organization (WTO) compliance panel to review the U.S. implementation of a WTO decision in the softwood lumber dumping case. Canada finds the U.S. implementation measures to be inconsistent with the WTO decision.

    To protect its retaliatory rights, the Government of Canada also sought authority to retaliate on C$400 million of U.S. imports. Retaliation will only be considered after the results of the compliance panel are known.
