06/05/2018 – Ottawa, ON – As a Member of the Automotive Caucus and as a Member of
Parliament for the city that is home to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, one of the largest
automotive companies in North America, I will not stop fighting for the Canadian
Automotive sector and the jobs it supports, especially here in Brampton.
In response to the United States President’s decision to place tariffs on Canadian steel and
aluminum, our government will impose dollar for dollar tariffs against imports of steel,
aluminum, and other products from the US. We will challenge these illegal and
counterproductive measures under NAFTA and at the WTO.
Businesses in our community have spoken to me to express their concerns about these
tariffs. We know that tariffs are not helpful to businesses and consumers on either side of
the border. It will disrupt linked supply chains and impact both Canadian and US
businesses. My door remains open to local businesses to discuss concerns you may have,
and I invite you to submit feedback directly to the Government. The consultation will be
open until June 15.
The US is Canada’s close ally and friend, and these tariffs are an affront to the longstanding
security partnership between Canada and the US. Our government continues to
believe that common sense will prevail. We will always protect Canadian workers and
Canadian interests and work to put an end to the US’ illegal and counterproductive tariffs
