Canada’s tar­iffs hit U.S. prod­ucts

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - BUSINESS -

Canada be­gan im­pos­ing tar­iffs on $12.6 bil­lion in U.S. goods as re­tal­i­a­tion for the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s new taxes on steel and alu­minum im­ported to the United States. Some U.S. prod­ucts, mostly steel and iron, face 25 per­cent tar­iffs, the same penalty the United States slapped on im­ported steel at the end of May. Other U.S. im­ports, from ketchup to pizza to dish­washer de­ter­gent, will face a 10 per­cent tar­iff at the Cana­dian bor­der, the same as Amer­ica’s tax on im­ported alu­minum.
