Canada retaliates tariffs on U.S. metals, orange juice

Canada Imposes Major New Tariffs on American Goods

The federal government is still expecting NAFTA talks to accelerate this summer even though U.S. President Donald Trump says he's in no rush to sign a deal until after the U.S. midterm elections this fall.

Former Mexican Congressman Agustin Barrios Gomez joins Power & Politics to discuss what Mexico's president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador means for NAFTA negotiations.

Canada's retaliatory tariffs on USA goods do nothing to help Canada and will only hurt American workers, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday.

Trump has also called the North American Free Trade Agreement, the "worst trade deal in the history of the world".

As temperatures and tensions increase, the measures targeting Can$16.6 billion (US$12.6 billion) in United States steel, aluminum and consumer goods will take effect on Sunday, when Canadians celebrate a national holiday and just days before Americans celebrate Independence Day amid a heatwave expected in both countries.

Baruah expressed concern over the Trump administration's threat to impose further tariffs, this time on the auto industry, He noted that 25 to 35 per cent of a vehicle assembled in the U.S.is composed of parts from around the world.

Canada's response includes imposing $16.6 billion worth of tariffs on a long list of consumer products that come from a wide range of sectors - from beer kegs, to ballpoint pens, to ketchup.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said the tariffs are regrettable.

"We've been very nice to Canada for many years, and they've taken advantage of that", Sanders said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during a news conference in Ottawa, Ontario.

A former Mexican congressman and founding member of a Mexico-based think tank says it's time for Canada to drop the gloves in its trade fight with the United States.

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

After that meeting, Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "weak" and "dishonest". Do you know what happened?

As Canadians celebrated the country's birthday on Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on the road highlighting the stand he has taken against the US government's decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

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