The owner of lumber mills in White River and Hornepayne, Ont., is calling on the Canadian government to step in after the U.S. Department of Commerce raised softwood lumber tariffs.

The United States said Wednesday it was imposing duties of 17.9 per cent on average softwood lumber imported from Canada, double the previous rate of 8.99 per cent.
