Staggering U.S. tariffs imposed on Canadian lumber could claim Tembec's Timmins sawmill as a casualty. The U.S. commerce department's decision to levy an additional 12.6 per cent anti-dumping duty on top of a 19.3 per cent countervailing duty from last August has placed the 170 jobs at the Timmins mill in jeopardy, though no layoffs have been announced.
