Trudeau kicks off tour of steel and aluminum factories in Quebec

Posted In: News Date:Mar 12th, 2018

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau began a cross-country tour of aluminum and steel factories with a visit to Quebec's Saguenay region.

Trudeau met with stakeholders in the aluminum industry Monday morning in the region about 250 kilometres north of Quebec City.

Other stops will include Hamilton, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., and Regina.

Both industries are facing uncertainty after U.S. President Donald Trump slapped steel and aluminum tariffs on the rest of the world last week.
