Canada Announces Final List of Retaliatory Tariffs


Canada is announcing billions of dollars in tariffs against the U.S. in retaliation for the Trump administration’s duties on Canadian steel and aluminum.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government released Friday the final list of items that Canada will target beginning July 1. Some items will be subject to taxes of 10 or 25 percent.

The items include ketchup, lawn mowers and playing cards.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chyrstia Freeland said Friday that Canada had no other choice and will not escalate the dispute, but will not back down, either. She said the tariffs are regrettable.
