With the new North American trade agreement, called USMCA, set to go into effect Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is cautioning against imposing new tariffs against Canadian aluminum imports into the United States.

"In regards to aluminum, we have heard, obviously, the musings and proposals from the United States that perhaps there needs to be more tariffs on aluminum," Trudeau said at a news conference Monday.

"We see that our economies are so interlinked that punitive actions by the United States administration end up hurting Americans the same way they end up hurting Canadians," he said.

"That's why we will continue to advocate for continued free and fair trade between our two countries in a relationship that has been extraordinarily beneficial to our two countries for many, many decades."
