Catherine Cobden, president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, said steel exports to the U.S. are down by as much as 40 per cent since March, “so there’s no way anyone could assess what’s happening as being a surge.”
"What I can tell you, though, is there is absolutely no need for tariffs, especially now when we signed the USMCA, which is a very strong agreement for North American steel producers."
Ottawa is taking promised steps to prevent aluminum and steel from entering Canada as a way to circumvent trade measures that led to the U.S. lifting tariffs earlier this year.
“Overall we are discouraged,” said Catherine Cobden, CSPA president. “It really is a step in the wrong direction between two countries that want to have fair and free trade.”
The head of the Canadian Steel Producers Association wants to be precise. New Made In American rules hurt, but not like the U.S. tariffs hurt steel producers.
Should Canada’s steel industry be gouged again by U.S. trade policies, the federal government would “vigorously defend” its interest.
