How about our own tar­iff for GM Oshawa clo­sure?

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - OPINION -

If the auto in­dus­try is as crit­i­cal to the Cana­dian econ­omy as has been stated, then any risk to it could be deemed a grave se­cu­rity threat to Canada.

Per­haps Canada should take a page from U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s play­book and im­pose, un­der the ra­tio­nale of “na­tional se­cu­rity,” a 20 per cent tar­iff on all GM ve­hi­cles above the num­ber pro­duced in Canada that are sold in Canada.

The money ob­tained could be used to as­sist auto work­ers laid off due to the GM plant clo­sure. John Sum­mer­field Winch­ester
