Trudeau failing steel and aluminium workers
Donald Trump announced import tariffs on steel and aluminium with initial exemptions for Canada and Mexico.
These temporary exemptions are contingent on the successful renegotiation of NAFTA.
Justin Trudeau’s 2018 budget contained no new policies that will help Canadian steel and aluminum workers deal with U.S. protectionist policies and trade disruptions.
It’s unacceptable that Justin Trudeau unveiled a federal budget that doesn’t contain a contingency plan if NAFTA is terminated, or promote policies that make Canada a more attractive place to invest and do business.
If Canada isn’t open for business, then fewer people in Washington will value maintaining NAFTA in its current form.
Trudeau needs to stand up for Canadian steel and aluminum workers – sign if you agree!
