"They will take effect on July 1 and will remain in place until the United States eliminates its trade-restrictive measures against Canada".
While opposition parties have so far largely backed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for standing up to Trump, their support could be tested once the US tariffs start to bite.
He added Thursday that his reaction was also prompted in part by the president's recent remarks about Mr. Trudeau, who Mr. Trump called "weak" and "dishonest" as the trade dispute intensified weeks earlier.

The annual conference presents Canadian politicians and business leaders with an opportunity to engage with their USA counterparts - particularly those who share the same opinion on the tariffs, and understand that the Canadian and US economies are intrinsically linked, Bilous said.
Freeland said Canada is prepared if US President Donald Trump escalates the trade war.

"Toyota shares the Administration's goals of increasing U.S.jobs, growing the economy and strengthening national security", the automaker said. It's a tit-for-tat response to the tariffs slapped on $16.6 billion worth of Canadian steel and aluminum products by the Trump administration. The move helped upend one of the world's most important trading relationships and soured ties between Ottawa and Washington. But trade between the province and the U.S.is mutually beneficial, he said.
Trudeau announced Canada's intention to retaliate against Trump's tariffs at the end of May. "There's no reason why we shouldn't continue to work closely together to grow our own and each other's economies".
The penalties will add 25 per cent to the cost of U.S. steel, and 10 per cent to aluminium and consumer goods.
