Donnelly also said the Canadian government must put resources in place to ensure that cheap steel is not diverted into Canada after Trump last week made a decision to impose a 25 percent tariffs on steel imports.

"We recognize that the American side is eager to get forward motion on NAFTA", Trudeau told CNN's Anderson Cooper, in one of his USA interviews.

In the call with Trudeau, Trump "emphasised the importance of quickly concluding the ongoing Nafta negotiations", the White House said.

"We are negotiating the NAFTA accord in good faith and we will continue to do so but I don't want the president to think he can bring tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum without there being consequences", he told Radio-Canada earlier in the day.

Trump has linked permanent exemption to the successful renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, making the industry nervous.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is touring steel in aluminum and steel factories in Quebec-beginning in the Saguenay region.

What he heard directly from the president echoed public remarks from Trump's administration: the USA trade czar recently said he wants a new NAFTA concluded within weeks, because of upcoming elections in the different countries.


The only countries temporarily exempted are Canada, Mexico and Australia so far.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland will be in Washington for three days this week - meeting with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and key members of Congress.

Looking at the situation from the outside, many believe Canada and Quebec have dealt with the situation quite well, by rallying those in the U.S.to their cause.

In seeking to win a respite from the tariffs, American allies tried a mix of persuasion, threats, personal appeals, and diplomatic leverage.

"The case in 232 is the argument that for national security reasons we need to maintain a high level of production of some particular commodity", says Nicholas Lardy, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. Since most tariffs are already low, affected countries are allowed to impose their own tariffs on U.S. goods and services but only for three years. Canadian steel is in your tanks. Brazil, which is the second biggest supplier of steel to the United States after Canada, remains open for a dialogue to reach an understanding with the United States and is talking to other countries to learn about measures they are considering, he said.

The prime minister is on a cross-country tour of aluminum and steel factories to demonstrate his government's support for workers in light of potential threats to those industries from the US administration.
