    U.S. housing advocate wants lumber duties dropped for hurricane reconstruction - By BRUCE CHEADLE, CBC News
    Steep U.S. tariffs on Canadian lumber will only make a bad situation worse as impoverished Americans attempt to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a U.S. housing advocate said Wednesday.

    'This tragedy, coupled with ongoing lumber tariffs, will only further harm lumber consumers - especially those needing affordable housing in the U.S.,' Susan Petniunas of American Consumers for Affordable Homes told The Canadian Press.

    A spokesman for the U.S. lumber lobby, meanwhile, said Canadian producers should be exempted from those punitive softwood duties - but only on free lumber donated to the rebuilding effort in Louisiana and Mississippi.
