US singled out by G7 allies over tariffs ahead of summit

"This focus on goods trade, bilateral goods is not the right focus in a hyperconnected world where most of the economic activity, most people work, most small businesses, most women work in the service sector", Carney told a panel, though he said trade is not the direct responsibility of financial policymakers.

"Canadians have served alongside Americans in two world wars and in Korea".

Trudeau didn't specify what that might mean in the wake of US measures aimed at Canada, Mexico and the European Union that slap import duties of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum. China has vowed to retaliate with tariffs of its own.

Trudeau also faced pressure Monday to speed up Canada's tariff retaliation on USA steel and aluminum imports, while it consults on imposing levies on other American consumer goods.

"They must open their markets and take down their trade barriers!" "The U.S. has been ripped off by other countries for years on Trade, time to get smart". Trudeau had bitten his tongue through skirmishes over airplanes, lumber and North American Free Trade Agreement talks. They're typically charged as a percentage of the transaction price that a buyer pays a foreign seller. "Do Timber & Lumber in US?"

Trudeau thumbed down plans by the U.S. to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum for "national security" reasons, saying his soldiers had fought and died with American troops in Afghanistan.

"Our absolute view is that this is absurd to think that Canada could in any way be a security risk to the United States", Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau told reporters at the conference. Proceeds go to the Treasury.

The United States had sought to use the tariff threat as a cudgel to win concessions from Canada and Mexico in talks to renegotiate NAFTA, offering the two US neighbors a permanent exemption if they agreed to USA demands. But he said the USA insistence on a five-year sunset clause was a deal breaker. "And we also imposed duties on consumer goods, finished products that Canadians can easily find an alternative", he said. That could be complicated by the cross-border trade war that broke out just days later. "The big companies will have staff that this is all they do". "We will continue to defend supply management", she said, declining to elaborate.

Morneau has said Ottawa is buying the project from Kinder Morgan Canada in order to help the expansion overcome political risks.

"Finally, the new tariffs come at a time of increased US-China trade tensions".

In the fiscal year that ended September 30, the US government collected $34.6 billion in customs duties and fees.

White House legislative affairs director Marc Short dismissed the chatter.

It has found that Canada is effectively dumping that product in America and has proposed tariffs of around 20% on the material. They also reduce competitive pressure on domestic competitors and can allow them to raise prices. Cecilia Malmstrom, the European Union trade minister, said the tariffs amounted to "pure protectionism" and are "further weakening the transatlantic relations". He exempted Canada, Mexico and the European Union pending additional talks to ease USA concerns. Highly restrictive on Trade! This was evident in Trump's 2016 election and the British vote that year to leave the European Union - both surprise setbacks for the free-trade establishment.
