The prime minister cut short a planned family vacation to instead tour factories and meet with workers - an attempt to ease their anxieties over the possibility the US could still impose new tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.

In the 48 hours or so leading up to Trudeau's scheduled appearance in Sault Ste. "We will continue working toward securing a definite and permanent exemption from those tariffs", Trudeau said earlier.

The prime minister has been touring communities across the country with a major stake in aluminum and steel production.

She also says the tariff discussions and NAFTA negotiations are completely different, adding that, "We treat them on totally separate tracks". "We'll always be at the table", Champagne said.

March 23 in the US will come into effect duties on steel imports (25%) and aluminium (10%) by order of the President.

The tariffs Donald Trump unveiled last week could prompt steel to be shipped instead through Canada to skirt the levies, Trudeau said Tuesday at an ArcelorMittal Dofasco plant in Hamilton, Ontario.

Trudeau's first stop was the province of Quebec, the heart of Canada's aluminum industry, where he will be accompanied by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.

When asked about preventative measures for the dumping of surplus foreign steel, Trudeau says that he'll work with the US on any new measures, and that Canada will be a lot more active in the coming weeks on ensuring that government is protecting industry Canadian steel producers and its steel workers from "having to unfairly compete with folks who aren't following our rules" surrounding labour and environment.

Lead Exposure Responsible For Ten Times More Deaths Than Thought
Lead exposure is much lower today because of regulations banning the use of lead in petrol, paints and other products. People are more likely to suffer health complications from smoking, but lead exposure is far more common.


"These are things that I highlighted to the president".

Trudeau accused China of flooding global markets with cheap steel on Monday, saying Canada has already taken steps to prevent "dumping".

The American administration has expressed a desire to get a NAFTA deal in a hurry and some prominent members have been suggesting that the threat of steel and aluminum tariffs might prod the negotiations along.

"We are very concerned about the actions taken by China and the dumping of steel and aluminium on the global market", Trudeau said.

Canada - the top supplier of steel and aluminium to the USA market - and Mexico have been temporarily exempted from the tariffs until trilateral continental trade talks conclude.

MT is Canada's largest steel manufacturer, employing more than 10K people with seven units in the country, and Canada is the biggest supplier of steel and aluminum to the U.S.

"I understand this point of view, but for me, I think Canadians in general are expecting us to work productively with the United States", Trudeau said.
