NDP on the lumber conflict: Angus calls on the Martin government to seek a stronger dispute mechanism to prevent trade harassment without a case first having been made, and a declaration once and for all that Canada competes fairly in softwood.[from this press release]

David Orchard: A simple solution to U.S. bullying
Canada can pull out of free trade agreements and return to WTO without penalty [via thestar.com, acquire login]

I know Layton would be wary to call for the end of NAFTA, and our promise during the last federal campaign was to renegociate it (and the WTO, too; bwahahaha), but Orchard makes a very good point that could be used later on by the NDP.

Developing story: Canada may retaliate with tariffs in softwood battle [via cbc.ca (!)] Oil would be an obvious target. AHEhAEh.
