You get tariffs and you get tariffs

Canada imposes tariffs on $12.6 billion worth of U.S. goods

In a retaliatory move, Canada on Sunday began imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion worth of U.S. goods, including ketchup, dishwasher detergent, and whiskey.

The new tariffs are in response to the Trump administration's decision to place tariffs on imported steel and aluminum coming into the United States. U.S. steel and iron now face tariffs of 25 percent, and other goods, including coffee beans and strawberry jam, have been hit with tariffs of 10 percent. On Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Canadians to "make their choices accordingly" when deciding whether to purchase American items.
