The softwood lumber trade dispute between Canada and the U.S. has been going on for decades. It continues to challenge social and economic growth in many smaller Canadian communities. In an interview with the Saskatchewan newspaper meadowlakeNOW, Al Bulisky, CEO of Meadow Lake Tribal Council Industrial Investments (MLTCII) and president of NorSask Forest Products, said $10 million in funds rest in trust at the US Department of Commerce until there is a resolution. Part of the proposed deal is that some of those funds are released back to the parties that put those funds forward.
