Softwood Lumber Agreement Unraveling Already - Impinges On Canadian Sovereignty
Yahoo CP reports that the so-called anti-circumvention clause in yesterday's U.S./Canada Softwood agreement allows the U.S. government a veto on changes to provincial forestry policies, impinging on Canadian sovereignty. LFP told you so yesterday! Meanwhile, 'the Bush administration heralded the softwood lumber deal as the dawn of a productive new era in Canada-U.S. relations following years of distracting disputes.' as reported by CP. I guess the Bush Boys love this type of deal making with the Harper Government! Bend over some more why don't we!....
