Corner Brook Pulp And Paper Could be Hit With More Tariffs

Kruger, parent company of Corner Brook Pulp and Paper has been slapped with a preliminary 22.16 per cent anti-dumping duty.

This duty is on top of the preliminary 9.93 per cent duty that was imposed on the company by the Trump administration in January, 2018.

The anti-dumping duties will come into force five days from now.

This would cost $30-million a year.

Premier Ball said, “The continued attacks by the United States on Canadian and local industries are unwarranted and punitive. Corner Brook Pulp and Paper has not been the influencer in these attacks but caught in the middle of larger trade disputes. We stand by our support of the company and the individuals and families that make their livelihood off the forestry and will continue to work with them to support this industry.”
