Report from Inside U.S. Trade

The U.S. could impose new Section 232 restrictions on Canadian aluminum as soon as Friday, sources tellInside U.S. Trade. The timing and targets of the possible restrictions were still being discussed as of Thursday, the source said. If another solution is not reached between the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and industry representatives, the source added, "we could see tariffs."
