Mexico, Canada Don't Want Tariff Exemptions Tied to NAFTA

In a phone call from the smelter town, Trudeau thanked Trump for the "special consideration" extended to Canada on the tariffs, and emphasized the importance of preserving "mutually beneficial" supply chains to support jobs and businesses on both sides of the border, his office said.

From an aluminum smelter, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called US President Donald Trump on Monday to press for a permanent exclusion from US tariffs on aluminum and steel.

"National security is a very important aspect of this deal, and if we're making the deal on NAFTA, this will figure into whether or not there are tariffs on Canada and Mexico", says the president.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday accused China of flooding global markets with cheap steel, adding that Canada has already taken steps to prevent "dumping" in this country.

Joseph Galimberti says Canada has to work very quickly to identify possible attempts to circumvent the US tariffs by sneaking steel in through Canada and must be prepared to act to stop this.

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

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.

When Trump announced last week 10 percent tariffs on aluminum and 25 percent on steel, he said Canada and Mexico could be exempted permanently if the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is successful.

Trudeau rejected calls by some Quebec union leaders to take a harder line in NAFTA talks and leave the table if Canada can not get a better deal.

Mr. Trudeau argued that Canada - the largest supply list of steel to the United States - is a key American defence ally and noted Canadian steel is used to manufacture US tanks and Canadian aluminum is in America warplanes. He is scheduled to tour steel mills in Hamilton, Sault Ste.

It was the second call in a week that Trudeau made to Trump on the tariffs issue.

The Canadian government has vowed to retaliate if duties are imposed, but the prime minister did not answer directly when asked what measures it might take.
