    Trump hammering Canada. Maybe we shouldn't allow a security apparatus to undermine American businesses, covertly and unfairly get advantages over U.S businesses. This is only one industry of many, America is no longer allowing the exploitation.

    U.S. Commerce Department rules on Bombardier: Preliminary duties of nearly 300% upheld

    The U.S. Department of Commerce has issued its final ruling in the escalating clash between Boeing Co. and Bombardier Inc., upholding its previous finding that the Canadian plane maker must pay duties of nearly 300 per cent to import its C Series airliner into the United States.

    Commerce ruled to implement anti-dumping duties of 80 per cent and countervailing duties of about 212 per cent, slightly lower than its initial calculation, for total tariffs of about 292 per cent. That would nearly quadruple the price of a C Series imported into the United States.

    The department's decision, made public Wednesday, was expected and is not the ultimate verdict in the trade dispute. That will come in February when the U.S. International Trade Commission decides whether Boeing was harmed, or threatened with harm, as a result of Bombardier's actions. That ruling can be appealed in turn.


    "It's not unreasonable to think that the extraordinarily high [penalties] found by the commerce department do, to some extent, reflect the ideological bent of this administration," said Edward Alden, a trade expert at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington. "You now have a Commerce secretary who's a cheerleader for protectionist tariffs. We're in a very different world."

    I've been saying this to Canada for over a decade, and they responded with a full court press against me. Now Canada reaps what it sows.

    Only socialist nations destroy those who stand up for liberty and Rule of Law. Agencies involved would gladly watch Canada be ruined as long as their budgets and careers are safe. It's treason. This is the outcome they encourage.

    Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you. U.S. once again bit off more than it could chew.

    I read your posts and wonder what kind of idiot thinks their nation should be slammed for looking out for Canadian interests. Certainly not a Canadian and certainly not when it comes to the USA which has been trying to economically appropriate and Americanize the Canadian economy for decades.
