OTTAWA: Canada welcomed the US decision to drop tariff on Canadian aluminum imports. At a press conference in Ottawa Tuesday afternoon, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland welcomed the decision. "This is really a day when common sense has prevailed." Freeland stressed that the US decision was not a negotiated agreement with Canada and the US government acted "unilaterally" and Canada does not accept the imposition of quotas. "Should tariffs be reimposed, Canada will retaliate with perfectly reciprocal dollar-for-dollar tariffs," Freeland said. Meanwhile, Canadian Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade Mary Ng said at the press conference that Canada did not concede anything in exchange for the US decision.
