U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been instructed to collect cash from Canadian newsprint importers based on those rates.
"This is not good news today", said Brewer.
The U.S. Commerce Department said on Tuesday it had made a preliminary finding that some imports from Canada of uncoated groundwood paper used in newsprint were dumped, and imposed preliminary duties of up to 22.16 percent. The new punitive tax comes on top of preliminary countervailing tariffs averaging 6.53 per cent levied in January.
Canada is contesting USA duties on softwood lumber, as it has successfully done in the past. "Some small-market or rural newspapers, with slim margins, will close", Mr. Chavern said.
The US Department of Commerce (DOC) has imposed preliminary antidumping duties on certain grades of uncoated groundwood paper, including newsprint.
Uncoated groundwood paper includes newsprint, as well as book publishing, printing and writing papers. United States imports of it from Canada totalled US$1.27 billion (RM5 billion) in 2016, the Commerce Department said.
In his decision Wednesday, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said his preliminary determination was based on "an open and transparent investigation" that determined the Canadian companies listed in the complaint were exporting paper at "less than fair value".
Commerce is scheduled to announce its final determination in its antidumping investigation on or about August 2.
The agency also set a preliminary dumping rate of 22.16 percent for all other producers and exporters of the newsprint product from Canada.
Norpac, owned by hedge fund One Rock Capital Partners LLC of NY, argues that subsidies in Canada include breaks on electricity rates and unfair financial assistance.

That comes on the heels of a 9.93 per cent countervailing duty that was imposed on the company in January.
As a result of the latest decision, US customs authorities will collect cash deposits from importers of the paper from Canada based on these preliminary rates, the department said. "Even with the exemption of directory paper, the remaining anti-dumping and countervailing duties are onerous and a critical cost challenge for Catalyst", he said in a statement. Their investigation focused on Resolute Paper Company in Quebec, Catalyst Paper in British Columbia and Kruger's operations in Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec.
The American government mentioned the maximum 22.16 per cent rate is lower than the 54.97 per cent rate that was claimed by NPPC. The company is anxious about the impact, notably at its mill in Corner Brook, Nfld., and two of its plants in Quebec (Brompton and Trois-Rivières).
"People in B.C. can count on this government to fight for their jobs and their industries whenever they are threatened".
FPAC applauds the swift response issued last night from Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr - they unequivocally defended Canada's interests.
In December 2017, a USA trade commission upheld tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber saying the product was subsidized.
