Keynote address

On Sept. 7, Gowling WLG and the City of Hamilton hosted a public summit at Hamilton's City Hall exploring the key challenges facing Hamilton's steel industry - with an emphasis on current obstacles posed by new U.S. tariffs.

Framing the summit's overarching discussion was a keynote address from accomplished international trade lawyer and Gowling WLG partner Richard Dearden, titled "Canada's Trade Relationship with the United States of America Today." His presentation provided important context on the tumultuous U.S.-Canada trade climate under President Donald Trump, and also highlighted a number of potential measures by which to protect Canadian steel producers from U.S. tariffs.
