    Nations assail U.S. on trade - By PAUL BLUSTEIN,The Washington Post
    Congress has failed to change a law concerning the way anti-dumping duties work, despite a WTO ruling that the law violates global trade rules. The law, known as the Byrd Amendment, enables U.S. companies complaining of unfairly cheap foreign competition to receive the duties collected by the government, rather than having the government keep the money.

    U.S. delays acting on repeated orders to cut penalties on Canadian softwood - By SANDRA CORDON, CBC News
    Washington says it needs more time to consider a NAFTA ruling that orders it to drastically cut some duties on Canadian softwood lumber exports.

    Late Friday afternoon, the U.S. Department of Commerce said it needs clarification on the order that it essentially eliminate countervail duties that total more than 16 per cent on softwood exports. It's the fifth time the U.S. has been ordered to cut the duties.

    Canadian government officials responded angrily to the latest delay, which sends a negative signal as to the prospects of the multibillion-dollar trade dispute ending soon.
