Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canada will impose tariffs of its own on $12.8 billion worth of US goods in response to Trump’s metals tariffs.
The list of goods to get hit the Canadian tariffs varies from industrial steel to sleeping bags. Trudeau said the tariffs were not designed to hurt the American people, but rather defend Canada’s interests and send a message to the Trump administration.
Business Insider provided a list of goods that would be hit hardest using the US Census Bureau data on exports and the list of goods subject to the tariffs.
The biggest losers from the US-Canada trade fight are industrial states in the Midwest:
Ohio would be the hardest hit. The state sent $1.75 billion worth of goods to Canada in 2017 that could fall under the tariffs.
Michigan would be close behind, with $1.17 billion in goods that could be subject to tariffs.
They are followed by New York ($1.17 billion), Pennsylvania ($1.14 billion), and Illinois ($1.02 billion).
The tariffs will go into place on July 1, Canada’s government said, and will stay in place until the US removes the steel and aluminum restrictions.
