Download Flash Player to view this content.

Disputes over softwood lumber between Canada and the United States have been ongoing for nearly 30 years. The argument continues this week in the London Court of International Arbitration, where the United States is filing claims against Canada. In this segment we hear from Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Pat Bell who feels the claims are frivolous. We also speak to Gus Van Harten of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University to find out what this dispute is all about.
