Premier Dalton McGuinty threatened yesterday to take the unprecedented step of imposing provincial tariffs or other “barriers” to block imports of South Korean automobiles if Canada can’t get its own cars to the Asian country’s market.
South Korea, which makes the Hyundai and Kia brands, exported 114,000 vehicles to Canada in 2006, but the Koreans allowed fewer than 100 Canadian-made cars into their market that same year.
McGuinty said he was worried free-trade talks between Ottawa and Seoul could produce an agreement that doesn’t guarantee access for Canadian-made cars.
