Last I read, the existing overall tariff summary comes about even between Canada and the US, depending on the product of course, maybe in favor of the US. They have theirs, and we have ours. Been that way for some time.
We do evidently have a large trade surplus with Canada. The U.S. government agency, Office of the United States Trade Representative, said U.S. had a $12.5 billion trade surplus for goods and services in 2016. Cannot blame them about being thinking they are being pushed around. It does appear that someone is acting in an uneducated way with tariffs, potentially causing pain in all areas, here and abroad. There will be no winners it seems.
But enough of that. No more.
Meanwhile, yes, tariffs on parts (maybe it would apply only to new parts, not used?) from Canada, Mexico, Europe, or China could raise the prices of needed parts. I hope not. Certainly a big tariff on the new Alfas would curb what sales they do have. That would be bad, but then again, all imported competition would be similarly affected. Even the US manufacturers would be affected, as material prices would go up. Time will tell.
Sigh, if it isn't one thing, it's another...
