US can't apply 'Buy America' rule in Canada

An employee at an Ohio steel manufacturer on March 1, 2012. The US has insisted that only American steel be used to renovate a ferry terminal on Canadian soilOttawa cried foul Monday over Washington’s insistence on using only American steel for its renovation of a ferry terminal on Canadian soil. The so-called “Buy America” policy, written into the US stimulus plan after the 2008 economic crisis, has been roundly criticized by Washington’s trade partners as protectionist. “The application of these protectionist trade restrictions on projects on Canadian soil by a foreign government is unreasonable,” said Max Moncaster, spokesman for Trade Minister Ed Fast. At the center of the dispute is a ferry terminal in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, leased by the Alaska ferry service from a Canadian government port authority.
