Trump to counter Canadian solar tariff lawsuit

Three Ontario-based manufacturing companies are suing the U.S. government over tariffs


The Star reports that three Ontario-based manufacturing companies are suing Trump’s administration in the U.S. Court of International Trade over the imposed 30 percent tariffs on imports.

The companies, Silfab Solar of Mississauga, Heliene of Sault Ste. Marie and the U.S. subsidiary of Canadian Solar of Guelph argue that Trump has overstepped his authority.

The lawsuit also claims that Trump disregarded an exemption for the Canadian companies, under the North American Free Trade Agreement, because they haven’t caused significant harm to the few remaining American manufacturers.

Trump imposed the tariffs on imported solar cells and modules in what is being described as a move to protect U.S. industry while signaling a more aggressive stance towards China.
