N.S. mill to fight U.S. de­ci­sion on sub­si­dies

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

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.
