NEWS IN BRIEF Weir pushing for Canadian exemption from Trump Tariffs Last week, US President Donald Trump announced hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Regina–Lewvan MP Erin Weir (NDP) says he will seek a clear exemption for Canada from these duties. “Steel trade between Canada and the US is balanced and integrated. This reciprocal exchange works for workers and businesses on both sides of the border,” said Weir. “We must ensure that Canadians, including Regina steelworkers at Evraz, are not sideswiped by legitimate concerns about offshore steel dumped into the North American market.” As Saskatchewan’s representative on Parliament’s All-Party Steel Caucus, Weir went to Washington in June 2017 with MPs from all parties to lobby their counterparts in the US Congress to exempt Canada from prospective steel tariffs. Both the United Steelworkers union and the American Iron and Steel Institute endorsed this call. “We need the federal government pushing for a clear Canadian exemption like we had from the US steel tariffs enacted in 2002,” said Weir. “Unfortunately, the Liberals do not seem to appreciate this sector’s importance. Earlier this week, they tabled a 367-page federal budget that does not mention steel even once.” Weir worked as the United Steelworkers’ Canadian economist before being elected. Sask. Party’s Boundary Dam 3 still costing Saskatchewan people, businesses “Despite the millions of taxpayers’ dollars the Sask. Party has paid to an American lobbyist to promote carbon capture in the US, Saskatchewan was left out of a large carbon capture coalition that was announced last week in the U.S.” noted NDP Environment Critic Cathy Sproule last week. “This rejection comes after not a single jurisdiction in the world joined the Carbon Capture global consortium the Sask. Party attempted to create. Instead of standing there and repeating the line that ‘we’re certainly leading the world’ when it comes to carbon capture, the Minister should be more concerned about how little Saskatchewan people have really gotten in return for the billions of their Monday, March 5, 2018 • Last Mountain Times dollars the Sask. Party has dumped into it. The Sask. Party is hurting Saskatchewan’s economy and is costing families and businesses more and more with this project and we simply are not seeing the results the Sask. Party promised or are still bragging about.” The latest figures from SaskPower show that between January 2017 and January 2018, Boundary Dam 3 was online an average of 61 per cent of the time – up only slightly from the 56 per cent it ran at in 2015. In its four years of operation, it hasn’t even captured half of its one billion tonnes per year target and SaskPower reports that efforts to improve the key amine chemistry are still ongoing. “We could be a global leader but, because of the Sask. Party, Saskatchewan has been dropped from the global conversation on carbon capture,” added Sproule. “They haven’t been straight with Saskatchewan people or the world, about the performance of Boundary Dam 3. And now, by forcing power rate hikes, leaving Saskatchewan people vulnerable to Ottawa’s carbon tax, and stubbornly rejecting $62 million in federal funding, the Sask. Party has essentially turned this experiment into a $1.5 billion carbon capture tax.” Nature Conservancy of Canada applauds new conservation funds The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) says it welcomes the announcement in Budget 2018 that significant new funds will be earmarked to protect Canada’s nature, parks, wild spaces, and species at risk. “The investment of $1.3 billion over five years affirms Canada’s commitment to protecting our lands and our waters and the variety of species they sustain,” an NCC spokesperson said. “Conservation of our natural areas ensures our country will remain a place where people want to live, work and invest. Protecting the environment and growing our economy go hand in hand. Budget 2018 supports Canada Target 1 — the pledge to protect 17 per cent of Canada’s land and inland waters and 10 per cent of our coastal and marine areas by the end of the decade. The NCC says it is pleased to see the Government of Canada charting a pathway to meet these goals, with a meaningful investment in public, private and Indigenous protected areas. 3
