Canada imposes retaliatory tariffs on $12.5B of USA goods

Canada Imposes Major New Tariffs on American Goods

Canada retaliates tariffs on US metals, orange juice

The list of more than 250 U.S. goods subject to Canadian duties - including Florida juice, Wisconsin toilet paper and North Carolina gherkins - aim to pressure Trump supporters in key states in November's USA midterm elections.

President Donald Trump says he's delaying signing a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement until after the midterms in hopes of reaching a better deal.

On Sunday, Ottawa responded to the Trump administration's tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum with duties of its own against USA imports.

If Trump steps up his attacks on Canada's economy and imposes a 25 percent tariff on automobiles as threatened, it would lead to "carmageddon", Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association president Flavio Volpe told a Canadian House of Commons committee hearing on Tuesday.

"I never want to advocate for nations putting up tariffs that thwart economic growth and thwart job creation, either here or elsewhere, but that's what's happening between the United States and Canada", he said.

The Chamber based its state-by-state analysis on data from the U.S. Department of Commerce and government agencies in China, the EU, Mexico, and Canada.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the tariffs are regrettable. "We share common goals, strong people-to-people ties, and a mutually beneficial trading relationship that is the envy of the world - reflected in our joint effort to update the North American Free Trade Agreement for the 21st century", Trudeau said in a statement congratulating Lopez Obrador on his win. When asked about this today, Sanders answered that "We've been very nice to Canada for many years, and they've taken advantage of that".

"Canada's workers build the roads and bridges that get us to work on time and back home again".

"We're going to take down all our barriers, we're going to take down all our taxes, right".

"I don't see how (Trudeau) is going to get this done", he said.

The phone call between the two leaders was the first to be publicly disclosed since Trump blasted Trudeau as "very dishonest and weak" at the end of the Group of Seven leaders meeting in Canada earlier this month. Do you know what happened?
