At 11th hour, U.S. unexpectedly reverses class, lifts tariffs on Canadian aluminum

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks with the media before the first day of a Liberal cabinet retreat in Ottawa, Monday Sept. 14, 2020. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal government will be taking action to counter what he described as the unjust tariffs that the U.S. has placed on Canadian aluminum.

OTTAWA – The United States is standing down into its own tariff dispute by Canada and lifting per 10 percent levy on aluminium taken from north of the boundary.

The division of the U.S. Trade Representative claims it is going to raise the tariffs retroactive to Sept. 1 since it anticipates Canadian exports to”normalize” across the rest of the year.

In a declaration, the USTR states it’ll continue to track transaction in aluminum and reimpose the purchase if amounts spike suddenly.

The abrupt about-face comes only hours prior to the federal government was expected to announce a new package of countermeasures from retaliation for those tariffs.

The authorities had issued a listing of potential goods on the goal list, such as drink cans, washing machine and clubs.

The U.S. enforced the tariffs past month in the petition of two American producers, prompting an outcry by Canadian manufacturers.
