Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said after talks with members of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday that US trade actions against Canada are illegal under World Trade Organization rules.

Freeland said while Canada believes the US use of a national security rationale to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum imports is absurd, it is confident common sense will ultimately prevail.
