The US International Trade Commission has voted to move ahead with a series of costly duties against Canadian mills that produce glossy paper. The decision was posted today on the commissions website. This marks the final phase of a countervailing duty investigation concerning supercalendered paper. Nova Scotia Trade Minister Michel Samson says the province has so far spent 2.3 million dollars fighting the decision. He says costs will rise through a free trade challenge. (The Port Hawkesbury Paper mill in Cape Breton faces a 20.18 per cent duty under the ruling.)
