“ As a Member of the Automotive Caucus and as a Member of Parliament for the city that is home to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, one of the largest automotive companies in North America, I will not stop fighting for the Canadian Automotive sector and the jobs it supports, especially here in Brampton,” said Ruby Sahota Member of Parliament in a press release.
In response to the United States President’s decision to place tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, Ruby Sahota said “ Our government will impose dollar for dollar tariffs against imports of steel, aluminum, and other products from the US. We will challenge these illegal and counterproductive measures under NAFTA and at the WTO”. The release also stated “ Businesses in our community have spoken to me to express their concerns about these tariffs. We know that tariffs are not helpful to businesses and consumers on either side of the border. It will disrupt linked supply chains and impact both Canadian and US businesses. My door remains open to local businesses to discuss concerns you may have, and I invite you to submit feedback directly to the Government. The consultation will be open until June 15”. MP Ruby Sahota added, “ The US is Canada’s close ally and friend, and these tariffs are an affront to the long-standing security partnership between Canada and the US. Our government continues to believe that common sense will prevail. We will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests and work to put an end to the US’ illegal and counterproductive tariffs.”
