8/7/2020   - CHAMBER PANS U.S. TARIFF ON CANADIAN ALUMINUM

CHAMBER PANS U.S. TARIFF ON CANADIAN ALUMINUM

The North Country Chamber of Commerce is calling the imposition of a 10% tariff on Canadian aluminum a case of "self-harm" and is calling for its reversal. 

"This is an unfortunate act of self-harm by the U.S., as past tariffs against Canada have been," states Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. "The U.S. and Canada make things together and this directly increases costs to many of our manufacturers with cross border supply chains that include aluminum goods. Just weeks ago, on July 1st, we implemented the new USMCA agreement as a celebration of the enormous importance of the U.S.-Canada economic partnership, and now we are already forgetting the special nature of that partnership. Hopefully, this will be short term in nature and will be reconsidered and reversed quickly."
