Would you suggest fines against importers?

Just like autoparts made with steel that kills, Kinder Surprise can be bought on eBay.

If they don't meet our safety standards, yes, but that's not the same as tariffs. And if they do meet our standards, then there's no reason to impose tariffs on them.

this is purely a cash exchange that will have no bearing on the actual market realities of steel or other metals.


Wow. I find myself in agreement with Hoid. Why would we lift tarrifs on US imports when our exports are being penalized? It is our tarrifs on US steel that are the bullet that the US shot themselves with.

Er... no, a tarif is a tax. A fine is applied when the rule is broken. A tariff is something you pay within the rules as a tax. Just like the GST or your income tax aren't a fine.

Without our deflated dollar to benefit ON there wouldn't be tarrifs on Canadian steel or foreign shit steel from abroad funneled through Canada.

Without a WTO ruling a tarrif is a fine defined by CITT enforced by CBSA for importing shit. If you don't import the shit you don't pay the tarrif/fine.

It's not a crime to park in a no parking zone but you will get dinged with a bylaw fine.

Bibi does look like he is on the ropes all right. You have to be pretty bad to lose to a General. Maybe the wife will be his cell-mate.
