Canada announces billions in retaliatory tariffs against US

Canada is set to put its retaliatory tariffs in place on July 1, Canada Day, and will remain in effect as long as the USA tariffs on Canada stay in place. On the long list of items to be targeted are gherkins, a popular pickled treat in Canada, and one that Woodbridge produces at his plant. "I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the European Union, which has hurt us badly on trade, down $151 Billion".

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland announced final measures Friday that take effect on Canada's July 1 national holiday.

"I was sitting in my La-Z-Boy chair and, you know, they were talking about Trump", he says.

The Canadian tariffs will come into effect on July 1 and largely target USA steel and aluminum products, but also foodstuffs such as coffee, ketchup and whiskies, according to a list by the Department of Finance. I couldn't believe it, you know.

Trump argued that his administration was imposing the tariffs in the interest of USA national security, citing rarely used Section 232 laws.

Last year, approximately 55 percent of Canada's total steel imports came from the US, with the remaining 45 percent split among Brazil, China, South Korea and Turkey.

Now, the Detroit-based maker of Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC vehicles is warning that additional tariffs - on top of those recently slapped on steel, aluminum and Chinese products - could hurt GM and ultimately its customers. "It makes no sense".

Our federal government is hoping Americans, particularly Republican politicians, won't be laughing when they realize their state will be hit hard by the tariffs that will increase the price of their products in the Canadian market.

About 80 percent of what Ford sells in the U.S.is built in the United States.

Canada hit back on Friday with retaliatory tariffs on American summertime essentials such as Florida orange juice, OH ketchup and Kentucky bourbon in its opening salvo in a trade war with president Donald Trump. "It's largely balanced trade and so it's fair trade and it's free trade".

Trump 'spoke to prank caller for four minutes, didn't realise'
Feigning an English accent, Melendez called the White House as "Sean Moore", a staffer for Sen. He said he was "shocked" Mr Trump then returned his call - from his plane.

In May, Trump called for an investigation into whether auto imports pose national security risks.

There are concerns that the two neighbors could get embroiled in a trade war. He said the impact of tariffs on the price of a GM vehicle was equivalent to "a luxury floor mat".

Freeland's tough talk came as the Canadian government unveiled a $2 billion package to support the country's steel and aluminium industries.

"Any trade action is disruptive on both sides of the border", Freeland said.

Deron Bilous, Alberta's Minister of Economic Development and Trade, said Ottawa is on the right track.

The Association of Global Automakers, a Washington-based trade group that represents auto manufacturers and parts suppliers based outside the US, called the potential duties "the greatest threat to the USA automotive industry at this time".

"The two leaders agreed to stay in close touch on a way forward". This is unacceptable. In particular, in the case of energy tubular, steel plates and rebar products, we will work with stakeholders in the coming weeks on an appropriate response, including safeguards.

GM's comments on the proposed tariffs represent some of the strongest pushback on the administration's tariff proposals yet by major auto companies, all of which face the potential of significant duties on imported vehicles or components.

"These retaliatory tariffs underscore the complete hypocrisy that governs so much of the global trading system", he said in a statement, and "do great damage to the multilateral trading system".
