I don't see why not, canadian companies around here draw lumber/wood products down and then backhaul logs to make more stuff to sell to us every day.  Have to compete with the canadians for our own US logs and the canadian govt subsidizes the trucking.

I have a reply to that but we are not supposed to get political here. Check with a customs broker for a definitive answer to your question. Does the price difference make American wood attractive?
