U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Canada's complaint is "broad and ill-advised".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says the WTO challenge is about the long-simmering trade dispute with the USA over softwood lumber and is entirely separate from the NAFTA talks. "This is effectively Canada bringing a dispute on behalf of all exporters in the world - the Europeans, Japan, China - because they're making a systemic challenge".
