Trump Lifts Tariffs on Mexico, Canada
Bogged down in a sprawling trade dispute with U.S. rival China, President Donald Trump took steps Friday to ease tensions with America's allies — lifting import taxes on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum and delaying auto tariffs that would have hurt Japan and Europe. By removing the metals tariffs on Canada and Mexico, Trump cleared a key roadblock to a North American trade pact his team negotiated last year. As part of Friday's arrangement, the Canadians and Mexicans agreed to scrap retaliatory tariffs they had imposed on U.S. goods.

Iron Castings - Aug 1, 2016
Stiff Duties Expected on Driveline Components from China and Canada
The Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission suspect driveline components exported from China and Canada to the US are sold at prices below fair market value or are being subsidized by a foreign "authority". However, a new anti-dumping or countervailing duty rule could change that. Preliminary findings of investigations by the Department of Commerce into subsidies and dumping allegations indicate that duties could soon be imposed on iron castings from these two countries.
