Trudeau considering more action to keep foreign dumped steel out of Canada

Ferguson also says Justin Trudeau did something that no other prime minister has ever done; he walked into the Stelco lunchroom.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the national security argument the making when it comes to considering tariffs for Canadian steel and aluminum makes no sense.

According to media reports, the key conservations in winning a Canadian exemption were when Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan told Secretary of Defense James Mattis that the United States relies on Canadian steel to manufacture its fighter jets, and Trudeau's March 5 pledge to Trump he would ensure "Canadian steel" was manufactured in "Canadian plants" by "Canadian workers".

Canada, the top supplier of steel and aluminum to the United States market, has been temporarily exempted from the tariffs, along with Mexico.

Trump confirmed the exemption last Thursday as he announced, in the name of "national security", the imposition of 25 and 10 percent tariffs respectively on all steel and aluminum imports.

Trudeau says Canada will not flinch in its support for workers and he hopes the threat of US tariffs can be solved in a friendly way.

The U.S., Canada, and Mexico wrapped up their seventh round of negotiations early this month.

"We are alert to that, we are working with partners in industry, with our American partners, to ensure that does not happen", Trudeau said of so-called transshipment.

"He has consistently kept his word to me", said Trudeau.

"The challenge they face is that we're there at the table, we're contributing, but we're not just going to be bowled over by them", Trudeau added.

The prime minister says restricting Canadian steel imports would hurt the American economy.

The tour was planned before the tariff exemption was confirmed but will still go ahead despite the exemption, with stops in Alma., Que, Hamilton, Ont., Sault Ste.

"The exemption represented a positive step in the right direction but we still have a lot more work to do", Trudeau told the room full of aluminum workers.

Later, at a roundtable with industry leaders, he spoke again of the importance of steel to Hamilton, saying he was there to listen.

"The U.S. hadn't always thought through exactly what they wanted".

Trudeau also expressed optimism about reaching a good North American free-trade agreement that will benefit Canada as well as the US and Mexico - despite Trump's constant refrain that the current deal is a bad one.

China on Tuesday dismissed Canadian accusations that it was flooding global markets with cheap steel, saying overcapacity in the industry was an worldwide problem.
