Prime Minister Trudeau to visit Hamilton steel mill

Prime Minister Trudeau to visit Hamilton steel mill

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be visiting Hamilton on Tuesday in a show of support for the steel and aluminum industries.

Donnelly also said the Canadian government must put resources in place to ensure that cheap steel is not diverted into Canada after Trump last week chose to impose a 25 percent tariffs on steel imports. On Monday, Trudeau called Trump to stress the need to preserve the "mutually beneficial" cross border supply chains.

The prime minister is on a cross-country tour of aluminum and steel factories to demonstrate his government's support for workers in light of potential threats to those industries from the USA administration.

Today, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is in Washington for a series of meetings to push our message on tariffs and NAFTA. Canadian steel is in your tanks.

The federal government is examining new measures to stop China and other countries from dumping cheap steel and aluminum in Canada as a way to skirt recent hefty US tariffs.

What he heard directly from the president echoed public remarks from Trump's administration: the US trade czar recently said he wants a new NAFTA concluded within weeks, because of upcoming elections in the different countries.

This form of processing allows it to be stamped "made in Canada" and could avoid the US tariff, which is why the federal enforcement officials will need to identify the country of origin of the original steel, said one industry executive who asked that his name not be used because he is not authorized to speak to the media. Mexico is also a member nation of the trade deal.

Trudeau accused China of flooding global markets with cheap steel on Monday, saying Canada has already taken steps to prevent "dumping". Will that create a privileged access for us in the USA market?

His comments came amid rising global trade tensions in the wake of a USA decision to impose steep tariffs on imported steel and aluminium.

While Canada and Mexico secured a temporary reprieve, Trump has linked permanent exemption to a successful North American Free Trade Agreement deal, making the industry nervous. In Trudeau's view, the US wasn't just helping Canada - it helped itself by refraining from slapping tariffs on its No. 1 supplier of both steel and aluminum.

"There is a global overcapacity issue and we are very pleased to work with our allies and friends to continue to counter that problem", he said.

Later, at a roundtable with industry leaders, he spoke again of the importance of steel to Hamilton, but said he was there to listen.

Mr. Trudeau said his government is working hard to ensure that the exemptions stay in place and took issue with the U.S. President's decision to use the tariffs as a bargaining chip. "This process of tit-for-tat can induce at times trade wars that are in no one's interests", Azevedo said.

Canada is the United States' largest foreign provider of steel and aluminum, with about 85 per cent of Canadian exports being directed to that country.

Earlier on Monday, Finance Minister Henrique Mereilles said Brazil's government had not made a decision yet on how to respond to the tariffs and needed to see what exactly the United States wanted in negotiations.

Azevedo said he did not know if Brazil would resort to the WTO's dispute resolution mechanism but said Brazil was not ruling it out.
