US, Canada to lift tariffs on steel, aluminum and more, stop litigation in WTO - joint statement

Washington and Ottawa have agreed to remove steel and aluminum tariffs as part of an agreement regulating the metal trade between the two neighbors, according to a joint statement.

It's official, per a joint Canada-US statement issued the Canadian government: the tariffs will be gone within 48 hours.

The countries have agreed that there can be tariffs imposed on *individual products* if there is a meaningful "surge" of imports of those products. pic.twitter.com/gWUYx7pICM
