ALTANTA, Ga. — The premiers representing Canada’s Maritime provinces are going to Atlanta, Ga. to talk trade, and this time they’re bringing a friend.

Prime Minister Jean Chretien will join the premiers, in hopes that agreements can be reached regarding the trading of softwood lumber and other exports.

One of the topics up for discussion is the duty that the U.S. Department of Commerce slapped on maritime products.

This marks the fourth trade mission in the U.S. for maritime officials, but the first that is taking place outside of New England.
