Canada's Justin Trudeau accuses China of 'dumping' steel on global markets

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau receives the 2018 Catalyst for Change Award and delivers remarks at the Equal Voice International Women's Day Lunch in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, March 8, 2018.

Mr. Trudeau spoke by telephone with Mr. Trump on Monday to thank him for the "special consideration extended to Canada" while stressing that the steel and aluminum industries are critical to jobs on both sides of the border, his office said in a statement.

He said the government needs to monitor steel imports more closely so that if shipment volumes are rising, it can react quickly to stop Canada from becoming a dumping ground into the US market.

The president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association says Canada may be off the hook for now from American steel and aluminum tariffs but it is still at risk from a glut of foreign steel.

Mexico and Canada were happy to hear about President's Trump's willingness to exclude them from tariffs on steel and aluminum exports to the U.S.

It was the second call in a week that Trudeau made to Trump on the tariffs issue. Canada has said that tariffs would hurt both the United States and Canada.

The new map offers several pickup opportunities for the Democrats, who now hold five of the state's 18 house seats. Lamb, 33, is a Marine veteran and former federal prosecutor from an established political family.

"Make no mistake - this was a true Team Canada effort and it will continue to be, moving forward", he told a news conference at the Rio Tinto Alcan aluminum plant in Saguenay, about 250 kilometres north of Quebec City. He is working to reassure anxious workers the government has and will continue to have their backs.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is heading to Canadian steel country this week on a three-day tour created to shore up the industry.

Trudeau, who is expected to travel to three other Canadian steel and aluminum cities to reassure workers in the coming days, said Canada already has "significant barriers" to prevent low-priced steel and aluminum from being dumped in this country, and is prepared to work with Washington "and do even more". "It has a negative impact on the NAFTA talks".

Worldwide trade lawyer Larry Herman says Canada can do several things, including promising temporary surcharges under the Customs Tariffs Act on any country found to be dumping steel, as well as tightening up the system that issues permits for steel imports, which he says is more a formality than a check on the system at the moment.

Lawrence Valley and the Great Lakes, to the ports of the east and west coasts and urban centres across the country, Canada's steel and aluminum industries provide thousands of Canadians with good, middle class jobs and play an important role in our economy.
