With the newish federal government preparing for the fall session, it appears the softwood lumber dispute is going to become headline news once again. (See today’s story from the Vancouver Sun.)
As you read the headlines, we encourage you to look beyond them, since there is so much more to the real story. For our perspective on the dispute, see some of our past bulletins on the softwood dispute, and keep your eye on future Bulletins.
Since spring 2004, we have written a few bulletins on this subject. They are ” Simplifying softwood spin“, ” Martin and softwood diplomacy“, and ” Softwood: the more things change, the more they stay the same“, or “Softwood sophistry“.
