PM continues to fail workers
Justin Trudeau’s renegotiation of NAFTA has failed our aluminum and steel industries who continue to face devastating tariffs imposed by the United States. Programs to deliver duty relief aren’t helping, as businesses trying to access this help face delays. Even the national aluminum associations of Canada, the United States and Mexico have issued a joint letter urging for a quick end to tariffs on their products.
The fact is, instead of putting forward a concrete plan to deal with U. S. protectionism, Justin Trudeau failed to deliver any measures that would have prepared the steel and aluminum industry for the possibility of tariffs.
Conservatives have travelled the country and spoken to many small and medium- sized businesses who say red tape and bureaucracy imposed by the Trudeau government is hindering their access to the relief they need. By signing the new NAFTA trade deal with no assurances that destructive tariffs on steel and aluminum will be lifted, Justin Trudeau has failed to protect our economy.
