    U.S. plans to slap tariffs on aluminum imports from Canada

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/tariff...rade-1.5623245

    The tariffs would then be implemented by July 1, the report said, which is also when a new Canada-U.S.-Mexico Agreement on trade is expected to take effect.

    Some industries, including automakers, had been asking for a delayed implementation of the agreement due to the difficulties they are facing amid the coronavirus pandemic.


    The new North American Free Trade Agreement replaces the 26-year-old trade agreement between the three economies.

    The office of the United States Trade Representative did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on aluminum tariffs that was sent outside regular business hours.

    Earlier in the day, the U.S. Supreme Court turned away a challenge to President Donald Trump's tariffs on imported steel brought by an industry group that had argued that a key part of the law under which he imposed the duties violates the U.S. Constitution.

    Trump signed a proclamation this year increasing tariffs on derivative steel products by an additional 25 per cent and on derivative aluminum products by an additional 10 per cent, from which countries including Canada and Mexico were exempted.

    The New Can/US/Mex Agreement also adds Tariffs to Used Vehicles entering the USA.

    So, I guess "Prices are going Up"

    Nice to see somebody fighting for the American worker and American economy.

    I was furniture shopping a few weeks ago and the store said that they were updating all their lines because they were moving their manufacturing out of China due to the tariffs. Unfortunately they weren't moving it back to the US, but they were moving it out of China. That's half a win I guess.

    As well that maybe they should because it ends up being sort of a double whammy Covid-19 plus having to resource things at the same time. and like TruckMan says It's half a win and at least a start anyway.

    It's a Minimal "Win"

    The Tariffs are going on "Raw Products". The Majority of "American Workers" that touch it, are turning that "Raw Product" into a "Finished Product", and they are not doing that for Practice.

    Take my All Aluminum Pacific NW built Boat purchased in 2017. Under 20% of it's price was "Raw Product". Meaning 80% went to American Business, American Transportation, American Workers, and some to the Selling Canadian Dealer.

    In fact, the Last "Aluminum/Steel Tariff, was figured to add a mere $4-500, of $15000 that stayed in the US of A. That $4-500 Could have Stayed in Canada, in fact it would have Stayed here for a BC. Built Aluminum Boat. Leaving US Worker out $15K.

    The US, can make Aluminum and Steel as cheaply as Canada, if they had lower priced Electricity, and Workers that would do the job for the same pay scale.

    Yes, that's what the USA should be. "No Foreigners."

    A "Global Economy" is just that. If anyone thinks that Their Country can stand alone without any Outside Products, Help, Skills, and Raw Products, well it isn't going to happen. USA a Small amount of Bauxite Ore to even Make Aluminum.

    China is the Largest Producer of Aluminum, would the USA rather get their needs there?

    I doubt it, we have enough of our own used cars.............

    We do get some trucks from Canada into the US, but I think it's a bit of work.

    The $CAD is so low, makes it worth it I guess.

    We have sent Every Used Late Model Truck (and some SUVs) to the USA, for the last 2 years. They leave our Small Dealership, by the Truck Load.

    Auction prices in Canada, for Rental and Low Mile Late Models are often Higher than Invoice when New. Hundreds are going South Daily.

    I realize Canada is just a Drop in the Bucket, compared to the US for Auto Sales. Like 9% Overall, but we sell Nearly 20% of the Full Size Trucks.

    Used Ford Edges are popular in Michigan and the dealers tend to seek them out. One place where the Edge sells particualrly well is Canada so truckloads of used Edges come into Michigan from Ontario. I was searching for a used Edge for my sister in Michigan and found nothing but former Canadian vehicles at some dealerships.

    Re: U.S. plans to slap tariffs on aluminum imports from Canada

    in Canada finding a late model USED DIESEL pickup is hard and EXPENSIVE when you do OR IT is a PILE as like stated above being exported to the USA
    JEEP Wranglers are another popular export
    I have seen used wranglers going for MORE THEN NEW as some dealers will sell locally before the US exporter takes them

    It's got to be the currency imbalance, and more prevalent than I thought.

    Re: U.S. plans to slap tariffs on aluminum imports from Canada

    FCA is a little different. They are the Only Manufacture that tries to stop the "Exchange Rate Dilemma"

    FCA cancels All Warranty, not just Warranty in the US.

    (1995 figures) When Used vehicles started going State Side because of Currency differences. The Average car was priced at 47 weeks of US Household Income, the Average Canadian car was 52 weeks of Household Income. The Manufactures, could not raise Canadian Prices, and didn't want to lower US Prices. That's the issue. That's is why, when our Dollars were flush, Canadians could purchase New Cars cheaper in the USA, However, the Manufactures quickly stopped Warranties, Delivery Allowances, and of course 0% wasn't offered to Foreigners'.

    This is also "Why" so many vehicles without or Low Incentives (cash on the Hoods) came over. Vehicles like Raptors, Shelby's, Super Duties, and such.

    These tariffs do more harm than good.

    Canada doesn't dump aluminium in the U.S. and the tariffs won't bring jobs back. Everyone just pays more.

    Exactly - U.S. can't produce all the aluminum it needs.
