A Canadian diplomat based in New York and a Syracuse University professor say the tariffs on steel and aluminum deal a very serious blow to the trading relationship between the U.S. and Canada.  The Trump administration’s move has forced Canada and other nations to issue counter-tariffs.  The matter has already promped rebukes from U.S. Allies at the G-7 meeting.

Consul General of Canada Phyllis Yaffe says the escalating trade dispute will cause damage to industries and consumers on both sides of the border.
