Tit for tat. If I impose a tariff or a tax on you, anything I buy or acquire from you will have a tariff too.
That I know of, the last time I transported (1986) boat engines into Canada, when the Canadian Authorities open the sealed envelope in front of me, (the envelope was sealed and not to be opened by anyone other than customs officials), I vaguely recall the price of the boat engines, and also recall a corporate check for the amount of the duty fees. Both the price and duty fees were much, much more than I could earn in 10 years of work. I do not know if taxes or tariff fees are imposed by our US Government, but I would think that if it did, it might be a fair dollar amount.
I don't know if the USA or Trump is instigating a trade war of sorts, but dairy farmers in Wisconsin bitched and said Canada has unfair trade practices. Bear in mind that there are at least three Wisconsinites who hold public office and may be pulling on Trumps coattails, Walker, Priebus, Ryan. The governor, white house chief of staff, and the house speaker.
