Auto industry backs plan to hit back with tariffs against ‘schoolyard bully’

Representatives of the Canadian auto industry said Thursday they will support Canada’s plan to retaliate in a “proportional manner,” if the United States imposes tariffs on imports of automobiles and vehicle parts.
Canada’s deputy ambassador to the United States, Kirsten Hillman, urged a U.S. Department of Commerce panel gathered in Washington to “recognize the wide-range of benefits of an integrated North American economy.
Volpe said that he would have been “disappointed” if Canada had not indicated it would retaliate to the potentially hefty tariffs.
While the arguments presented were not unexpected, Volpe said it marked a central moment that allowed the industry to warn the government of the impacts of such tariffs.
“It’s good to see American voices saying the same things that Canadian voices are saying,” Volpe said in an interview.
“Every single major player in the automotive sector on both sides of the border and in Mexico have said ‘This is dumb, we didn’t ask for this protection’.”
“I think it’s absolutely necessary for Canada to remind the U.S. that they can make their own domestic response and articulate to them that there is an immediate effect on U.S. interests, let alone the impact on American consumers,” Volpe said.
“I think there’s enough momentum and intel on this to show the harm on Section 232 would do to the American auto sector and I have some hope that the administration will treat this process fairly.”
