The softwood lumber dispute is suffering from the law of unintended consequences. Long a trade irritant between Canada and the United States it seemed to never move beyond the argument stage.
Now Elon Musk throws in new roof tiles that create energy, last a life time and can melt snow. Very cost effective. Check out the rationale for merging Tessa and Solar City.
Why would a home owner want a roof made from softwood lumber. Both American and Canadian lumber has a problem.
The roof tiles will go a long way to meeting green energy objectives.
Too bad about labour and small business on both sides of the border totally screwed on the softwood side. Hope the solar jobs offset.
