FYI for those interested - Trumps' 2 nominees to join US ITC: Dennis M. Devaney and Randolph J. Stayin for Commissioners on the United States International Trade Commission are to be voted in. Not sure of when the senate will vote on this.Jeenyus1 wrote: ↑Feb 13th, 2018 12:25 pm
Some more food for thought, as of 2 hours ago - large diameter welded pipe Canadian exports to USA have just risen...
"If the government makes a preliminary finding by March 5 that dumping or unfair subsidies are taking place it will begin collecting cash deposits from U.S. companies importing the pipe, the department said.
The probe covers welded carbon and alloy steel pipe larger than 16 inches (406.4 mm) in diameter. The pipe is generally used to transport oil, natural gas, slurry and steam and for piling, the department said.
The U.S. investigations, part of the 94 cases President Donald Trump’s administration has opened since taking office, are aimed at protecting U.S. manufacturers in global markets, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement.
The Commerce Department estimated that in 2016 imports of large-diameter welded pipe from Canada had a value of $66 million, China $139 million, India $26 million, Greece $70 million, Korea $150.3 million, and Turkey $116.1 million."

Wilbur Ross/Rex Tillerson and new FED chair Powell were handpicked by this party and they are exceptional at what they've been elected to do. Who do we have in our Canadian caucuses?
The ITC is currently operating with only four out of six Commissioners due to two members leaving - 2 Democratic nominees and 2 Republican nominees... If Devaney/Stayin are approved to the Commission, that will bring it to 4 Republican commission members and only 2 Democratic commission members...
This will likely get worse for Canadian dumping allegations/regulations rather than better imo.
