Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Threat of Injury: Greenhouse Bell Peppers From the Netherlands

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2010) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping of greenhouse bell peppers from the Netherlands had not caused injury but was threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers of Leamington, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on November 3, 2010.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
