Main Question or Discussion Point

OTTAWA -- A proposed 48% tariff on bicycles imported from China and other Asian countries will hit Canadian cyclists hard in the pocketbook and could "devastate'' hundreds of small retailers across the country, bike shop owners warn

...

Kubrick, who took the case to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal and expects a decision this week, said a global safeguard is needed for Canadian manufacturers - mostly Quebec-based - arguing imports from China and elsewhere went from a level of about 600,000 bicycles in 2000 to over a million last year.

...

"This has nothing to do with importation of bicycles, because I'm going to tell you that bicycles coming from outside the country for the most part are more expensive than bicycles produced in Canada," Pidgeon said.
