Steel, aluminum tariff

If the U.S. imposes a 25 per cent duty on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum, Canada ought to immediately woo John Deere and other farm machinery companies to set up shop in Canada.

Our steel and aluminum will be significantly cheaper than in the U.S. and I doubt even Trump would defy the farm lobby to impose new tariffs on imports of tractors, combines and other farm machinery from Canada.
