Statement from Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford on Steel and Aluminum Tariffs

Published on May 31, 2018

"The new harmful steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the US on Canada will make things even harder for Ontario's already-struggling steel industry and our workers.

"We must work domestically to make Ontario and Canada more competitive. After June 7th, as Premier, I will work with the federal government to resolve these trade issues to make Ontario open for business again.

"Our government will lower hydro rates, cut red tape, reduce taxes, and make Ontario the economic engine of Canada once again. Only a PC Government will create the business-friendly environment that is needed to bring jobs back to Ontario."
