Ken Neumann is the United Steelworkers’ national director for Canada.


"The new USMCA will be a key determinant of the entire economic relationship between Canada and the UnitedStates for decades to come. For hundreds of thousands of Canadian workers in industries now vulnerable to U.S. tariffs, a key question must be answered by their government: Why does this new trade agreement allow protectionists south of the border to imposepunishing tariffs on Canadian industries without any basis whatsoever?

Canadians also can rightfully ask parliamentarians to think twice about ratifying a trade agreement that containssuch a fatal flaw, on top of all the other concessions made by their government."
