Pizza to toilet paper: The items targeted by Canada’s tariffs

Pizza to toilet paper: The items targeted by Canada’s tariffs

"Glad to be here to remind everyone that Canadians stand up for each other".

If Trump steps up his attacks on Canada's economy and imposes a 25 percent tariff on automobiles as threatened, it would lead to "carmageddon", Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association president Flavio Volpe told a Canadian House of Commons committee hearing on Tuesday.

USA steel and aluminum tariffs have also been levied against Mexico, China, Turkey, India and the European Union.

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.

Donald Trump also congratulated Lopez Obrador on his electoral win, however, the US president also said in an interview this weekend he intends to hold off on signing a new NAFTA deal until after America's fall midterm elections. The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to hold hearings on auto tariffs in late July and to complete its investigation into auto imports later this summer.

"There is so much to be proud of as a country, but the thing we always have to be most proud of is Canadians ourselves - the way we step, the way we lean on each other, the way we're creative and optimistic about the future, the way we look at challenges as opportunities, to grow, to build, to be there for each other". During this conversation, they "reaffirmed the close friendship" and agreed to continue working toward a mutually beneficial outcome on the trade agreement, a read out of the conversation from the Prime Minister's Office said. US yogurt will now be hit with a 10 percent duty.

Trump meets with Supreme Court contenders, two in focus
Trump said he plans to interview six or seven people from his candidate list and will make an announcement of his pick on July 9. It's President Donald Trump's second year in the oval office and the second time he'll be naming a Supreme Court nominee.

After the European Union unveiled similar retaliatory tariffs, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer earlier this week lashed out calling them groundless and illegal.

"We will not just be victims of American policy, we're going to fight back". "It is fair and measured response", said Goodale.

Trudeau has insisted the USA president's complaints about Canada's trade barriers are the result of his refusal to give in to Trump's demands to do away with the country's supply-management system, which is created to protect dairy, poultry and egg producers.

"We have to sit down and look at what each country's national interests are and be very clear that we can not be allies if we are not friends".

Premier Sandy Silver and Mayor Wayne Potoroka were there as Larry Bagnell, Yukon's Member of Parliament, gave Trudeau a rousing introduction as "the first prime minister in decades who has been outside Ottawa on Canada day". "And escalating tariffs against the United States does nothing to help Canada".

"I think we'll get through this".
