Trudeau accuses China of 'dumping' steel on global markets

Trudeau to kick off tour of steel and aluminum factories in Quebec

He said that most of Canada's pulse crop exports will not be affected by the tariffs set forth by India.

Mr. Trudeau said that the consequences of putting tariffs on steel and aluminum in Canada "would mean pain for workers here in Canada but also job losses and difficulties for workers and their families in the United States", he said.

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

Trump did say he expected both Canada and Mexico to take action to prevent other countries from sneaking steel into the U.S.by sending them to Canada or Mexico first.

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 USA market.

"But I accept what the president said", Trudeau added, "that as long as there is a free-trade deal in North America there won't be tariffs".

Deliveries of advanced combat aircraft from the United States of America will drive import volumes up during the next few years. The SIPRI Arms Transfers Database contains information on all global transfers of major weapons, since 1950.

"We will continue working toward securing a definite and permanent exemption from those tariffs", Trudeau said earlier.

As the United States tries to light a fire under NAFTA negotiations, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada will not be bullied or pressured by the United States as part of those talks. The steel tariff investigation was launched to see the impact of steel imports on US national security.

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

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.

She is to meet US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Congressional leaders and others.

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. He was to also visit three Canadian steel cities this week to reassure workers.

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.
