N.S. mill to fight U.S. decision on subsidies
PORT HAWKESBURY, N.S. - A Canadian paper mill says it will defend against a decision by the U.S. government concerning subsidies on supercalendered paper products. Port Hawkesbury Paper calls the interim duty of 20.33 per cent announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce unfair and without merit. The ruling is a result of the petition filed by two American producers of supercalendered paper that say the Canadian paper goods are unfairly subsidized. Marc Dube, development manager of Port Hawkesbury Paper, says the company intends to prove the imposition of duties is not valid and will try to have them reduced or eliminated.
