​Ottawa to hit back at ‘Buy America’ rules

​Ottawa to hit back at ‘Buy America’ rules Ottawa is to hit back at the state of Alaska which has refused to seek a waiver of rules that mean it can only use US steel in a project, despite it being on Canadian soil. The Buy America rules would mean that the new ferry terminal in BC would be built using US steel but the federal government is invoking a law which was last used in 1992 to make it illegal for those bidding for the building contract to comply with Buy America.
