Canada Considering Trade Retaliatory Options

DanIndustry News Release, Trade

retaliatory optionsCanada is exploring retaliatory options after the Donald Trump administration announced tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber last month. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (true-doh) is exploring ways to push back against the United States, although what options Canada is considering remain unclear. A trade official from Canada called the move normal, according to Politico. The remarks came after Trudeau over the weekend said he is considering “carefully and seriously” a request from British Columbia Premier Christy Clark to ban U.S. shipments of thermal coal through Canadian West Coast ports. The U.S. softwood tariff was an indirect response to a change in dairy policy that impacted U.S. dairy exports to Canada.
