U.S. slaps 10% tariff on aluminum imports from Canada

The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has implemented a tariff of 10 per cent on aluminum imported from Canada.

Trump made the announcement of an executive order imposing the tariffs on Thursday in a campaign speech at a Whirlpool factory in Ohio.

The United States slapped import tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum in 2018 citing national security concerns, before removing them last year as part of a broad free trade deal now in force.

"I have determined that the measures agreed upon with Canada are not providing an effective alternative means to address the threatened impairment to our national security from imports of aluminum from Canada," the presidential proclamation reads. "Thus, I have determined that it is necessary and appropriate to re-impose the 10 per cent ad valorem tariff ... on imports of non-alloyed unwrought aluminum articles from Canada."

The tariff will be in effect as of Aug. 16.

'A step in the wrong direction'
Business groups largely oppose the plan, since it will raise costs of the metal for U.S. manufacturers, who will have little option but to pay the tariff and import the metal anyway because the U.S. does not produce enough of the metal to satisfy domestic demand.

Canada supplied about three-quarters of all the aluminum imported into the U.S. between January and May of 2020, said the executive order implementing the tariff on "non-alloyed unwrought aluminum."

"The administration's move to reimpose tariffs on aluminum from Canada is a step in the wrong direction," said Myron Brilliant, head of international affairs for business lobby group U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

"These tariffs will raise costs for American manufacturers, are opposed by most U.S. aluminum producers and will draw retaliation against U.S. exports."

Shades of NAFTA
Chris Sands, director of the Canada Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars in Washington, D.C., says aluminum being used as a cudgel in a trade dispute is reminiscent of the role softwood lumber played in the lead up to the first Canada-U.S. free trade deal a generation ago.

Disputes over softwood lumber threatened to derail that deal at the time, which is why both sides agreed to carve out the issue from a broader agreement, a decision which caused the issue to fester for years since it wasn't included in the agreed-upon rules.

"We temporarily resolve the dispute, we got our big trade deal [but] we then went back to the trade war," Sands said in an interview with CBC News.

Similarly here, the aluminum tariffs were excluded from the comprehensive trade deal that the U.S. and Canada and Mexico agreed to in 2019. "As soon as Canada's parliament, the U.S. Congress and the Mexican Congress approved the [USMCA] deal he's gone back to the trade war that he interrupted in order to get a deal."

加拿大这么卖力好几个关键场合站台给大哥当打手,本来还指望大哥能把一些边边角角的生意让给小弟,这下好了,整个鸡飞蛋打。 :buttrock: :buttrock:

大哥不给小弟一点汤汤水水的小关照就算了,还说小弟沾了大哥的便宜。让小弟情何以堪?:mad::mad:

早说过小土豆还是太嫩了。以为床铺可以降低关税,这样可以争取魁省选票,所以绑架了孟晚舟。结果赔了夫人又折兵。得罪了中国,税又给你加上了。床铺这个人根本就不能信,反复无常。

川普以前收加拿大钢/铝材关税的理由是:国家安全。加拿大和中国一样待遇嘛。

我没有立场,只想追求真相与正义。我没有主张,只是要驳斥胡说八道。

我早说过,对新北美自贸协定要拖着,把这件事情拖黄了就算了。但是加拿大因为小土豆要选举,所以赶在选举前把协议给签了。看吧,床铺说翻脸就翻脸。税可以取消,还可以再加上去。
