When I was in Canada a week ago, people asked me what I thought about the lumber dispute. Frankly, I hadn't heard anything about it since the previous time I'd been in Canada, like others living in the US. Seems US accuses Canada of protectionism (ref) and has raised tariffs, but Canadians feel that's just an excuse. US media does mention the dispute now and then, but just as a kind of ongoing known issue, not the bigger news item it is to Canada. To see how big, check out the Canada.com features section.
