International Trade Minister reserves the right to take action if necessaryis praising the Team Canada approach to fighting the tariff.

Ng says Canada will no longer be announcing its own suite of retaliatory counter-measures but it reserves the right to take action if necessary.

International Trade Minister Mary Ng says it's a good day for Canada's aluminum industry.

And Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says things are back to where they should be.

The comments come after the United States stepped back from a tariff dispute with Canada and is lifting a 10 per cent levy on aluminum.

The office of the US Trade Representative is expected to lift the tariffs retroactive to September 1st.

The move comes as the Trudeau government was poised to unleash retaliatory tariffs on the US.

Ng says Canada fully retains its right to impose counter-measures if the U-S takes action against Canadian aluminum again.

Ng says Canada's motto has always been, we will not escalate but we will also not back down.
