Here's the final list of Canadian retaliatory tariffs taking effect against Trump on July 1

Fans of peanut butter or jams and jellies other than strawberry can let out a sigh of relief.

Those products are among the ones that have been removed from the final list of retaliatory tariffs targeting American-made goods that are set to go into effect this weekend, along with prepared mustard, beer kegs, and outboard motorboats.

Speaking just moments ago in Hamilton at the Stelco steel factory, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the government had finalized the list of American goods targeted by the retaliatory tariffs, based on consultations with Canadians and industry over recent weeks, and has made a couple of changes

Tariffs on dozens of types of steel products will remain at the 25 per cent proposed on the preliminary list, while those on aluminum and other products will remain at 10 per cent.

Strawberry jam remains on the list of 79 items other than steel and aluminum set to be hit with a 10 per cent tariff starting July 1.

The original list, worth a total of $16.6 billion, targeted everything from whiskey, washing machines, steel and aluminum to orange juice, frozen pizza, beer, manicure products, boats, ketchup, coffee, nut butters and jams.
