The Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) wants to provide information to the World Trade Organization (WTO) that is not going make Northern Ontario softwood lumber producers happy. The organization, representing 49 First Nations, is seeking input at a future WTO panel into the softwood lumber dispute. The British Columbia Interior Alliance, a group of First Nations, has already been before the panel. NAN wants to tell the softwood panel that the countervailing duties are justified if Ontario lumber companies have not paid compensation to First Nations.
