Kenora MP Bob Nault says tariffs are being used by the Americans, in order to put pressure on Canadians to sign a bad deal on trade.
"This is going to be a trade war, unfortunately. We're hunkering down with the expecation Trump's not going to stop this, until somebody of sane mind and body makes a decision this is not good for anybody," he said.
Over the long weekend, Ottawa imposed tariffs on more than $16 billion worth of goods imported from the U.S., including a wide range of products.
As tariff wars heat up with the Americans, MP Bob Nault is encouraging consumers to shop Canadian. He adds the tariffs imposed over the long weekend will give some Canadian companies an advantage.
