The federal Liberal government is taking its cross-border trade dispute with the United States up a notch, unveiling an extensive final list of $16.6-billion worth of American imports that will be hit with retaliatory tariffs this weekend.
She also said Canada was in discussions with Mexico and allies in Europe, which have also retaliated against the United States imposition in June of 10 percent tariffs on aluminum and 25 percent on steel.
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland unveiled the details - including a finished list of the targeted USA products - during a news conference at a steel factory in Hamilton.
Donald Trump at an event to mark the sixth-month anniversary of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, saying tariffs are bringing "billions of dollars" to the US. "I don't want to show up to something that I don't feel comfortable with from a principle point of view of seeing what's happening with these constant threats to our steel industry, aluminum, our auto industry, the dairy industry, and I've sent my regrets".
"The tariffs introduced by the United States on Canadian steel and aluminum are protectionist and illegal under WTO and NAFTA rules, the very rules that the United States helped to write", Freeland said.
"We support our federal government's retaliatory tariffs in response to the USA administration's illegal protectionist actions", he told reporters on a conference call Friday.
Trudeau also spoke to Mexican President Enrique Pena Neito and updated him on Canada's response to the U.S tariffs.
There are fears, however, that Canadian tariffs - some of which target businesses in states that are important to Trump and his supporters - could lead to fresh trade action from the U.S. That threat could be a negotiating ploy to restart talks on the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Freeland said such tariffs would be "absurd" because the North American auto industry is highly integrated and parts made in Canada often go to cars manufactured in the US and then sold back to Canadians.
"We believe that cooperation is a better path forward than escalation", said Kent Bacus, the association's director of global trade and market access. "I think all of us, at this point, fully anticipate there will be some moments of drama in the future".
TORONTO - Canada announced billions of dollars in retaliatory tariffs against the us on Friday in a tit-for-tat response to the Trump administration's duties on Canadian steel and aluminum. "If you want to change it you have to make serious proposals, but you don't just walk away", he said. Bains, the economic development minister, said Friday that the feds are consulting with industry so even more can be done to address the diversion and dumping of aluminum and steel in the Canadian market.
