Would Trump’s 20% auto tariff be Canada’s ’ruination’? We access the damage

U.S. president Donald Trump threatened Friday to impose a 20 per cent tariff on cars if a NAFTA agreement can’t be reached with Canada.

“In some countries, including Canada, a tax on cars would be the ruination of the country. That’s how big it is. The ruination of the country,” Trump said at an event in North Dakota. “Nafta has been the worst trade deal ever.”

With about half a million people in Canada working directly and indirectly for the auto industry, “the impact is huge,” says Unifor president Jerry Dias.
