B.C. lumber producers file statement of defence in pine beetle export case

A statement of defence has been filed against a complaint alleging violations of the Canada-U.S. softwood lumber agreement involving the export of wood from trees savaged by the mountain pine beetle in British Columbia.

The more than 200-page statement, outlining U.S. allegations and Canada’s response, was filed earlier this week before the London Court of International Arbitration.

It was unclear when a decision will be rendered in the case.
