The section 232 action which is, let me remind people, a national security consideration is frankly absurd. The notion that Canadians steel and aluminum could pose a national security threat to the United States. I think Americans understand it's simply not the case. That action is also illegal under WTO and NAFTA rules and we have raised cases in both tribunals.
The answer is very simple. The US has to remove these unfair, illegal tariffs from Canada and from its allies. We really, really value our relationship with the United States, it's very important to us. And as the Prime Minister said when we announced our response to the section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs, we really are confident that at the end of the day common sense will prevail.
