Canadians Ask USDA To Drop Its New Border Fee

The Canadian government formally asked USDA to drop its intent to charge Canadian truckers a new fee for crossing the border into the U.S.

The Canadian government formally asked USDA to drop its intent to charge Canadian truckers a new fee for crossing the border into the U.S. USDA has indicated it plans to charge truckers $5.25/crossing, or $105/year, to fund a safety program on imported ag products. Landlinemag.com says Canada is protesting the fee, which applies to all Canadian truckers, not just haulers of ag products. Canada also contends the plan may also violate NAFTA.
