Justin Trudeau to visit Hamilton on Tuesday
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be visiting Hamilton on Tuesday in a show of support for the steel and aluminum industries.
Trudeau is set to tour Stelco Hamilton Works and the ArcelorMittal Dofasco plant, as well as participate in a roundtable with industry leaders.
He’ll be a guest on Global News Radio 900 CHML at 9:05 a.m. with host Bill Kelly.
A spokesman said Trudeau plans to tour regions of the country that are heavily reliant on the steel and aluminum industries, in the face of stiff tariffs being threatened by the United States.
For now, Canada and Mexico are the only two countries exempt from tariffs of 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum.
