Ottawa – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke today with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard, and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, to discuss Canada-U.S. trade issues, including the upcoming decision by the United States on whether to impose tariffs on exports of Canadian steel and aluminum.
The Prime Minister underscored the strong collaboration between the Government of Canada and the three provinces on Canada-U.S. trade issues and thanked them for their ongoing cooperation. He noted the importance of the steel and aluminum sector, specifically in Hamilton, Sault Ste. Marie, the Saguenay—Lac-St-Jean region, and Regina.
They all agreed to continue to defend the Canadian steel and aluminum industry from unwarranted tariffs and to stand up for the best interests of all Canadian workers and businesses.
