DOUG FORD’S STATEMENT ON U.S. STEEL AND ALUMINUM TARIFFS

Published on May 31, 2018

In the wake of the today’s announcement of US tariffs on steel and aluminium, Ontario PC leader Doug Ford released the following statement:

"The new harmful steel and aluminium tariffs imposed by the US on Canada will make things even harder for Ontario's already-struggling steel industry and our workers. 
 
"We must work domestically to make Ontario and Canada more competitive. After June 7th, as Premier, I will work with the federal government to resolve these trade issues to make Ontario open for business again. 
 
"Our government will lower hydro rates, cut red tape, reduce taxes, and make Ontario the economic engine of Canada once again. Only a PC Government will create the business-friendly environment that is needed to bring jobs back to Ontario."
