Chinese Stainless Sinks Hit By Tariffs

I am very happy to report that the Canadian government has slapped Chinese made stainless steel sinks with tariffs of up to 100%. These crappy sinks have been hitting our shores for the last five years. Making our local sink manufacturers bleed money trying to compete.
In this tough economic down time we need to protect or local companies and keep jobs alive here in Canada. Plumbers and consumers must buy Canadian. This easy to do step can easily solve the economy. We can take care of our own! It is about time we stand up to foreign garbage flooding our markets. It is the problem that caused the whole issue in the first place.
So next time you go to buy a plumbing fixture, ask the salesman. Where is this product made? How much extra is a Canadian or American made product?
