Government Response to Current Trade Crisis Has Been Weak
The NDP is calling on the Liberal government to strike a National Tariff Task Force, focused on defending Canadian jobs in industries targeted by U.S. tariffs, including steel, aluminum, softwood lumber and potentially auto.
“The government must do everything in its power to reduce the impacts of Trump’s outrageous tariffs because once these jobs disappear from our communities, they’ll never come back. said NDP International Trade Critic Tracey Ramsey. “Canadian workers and industries need stability and predictability to survive. A task force on tariffs should be implemented immediately to reduce unnecessary barriers to accessing supports.”
