Los Angeles (People's Daily) - Canada announced on Friday that it plans to impose $12.6 billion worth of retaliatory tariffs on US goods beginning July 1, according to CNBC. 

The country is working closely with European Union and Mexico and "will not back down," Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said. 

Canada's tariff list includes US imports such as yogurt, coffee, toilet paper and sleeping bags. EU's tariffs have included bourbon, motorcycles and yachts. 

Freeland said the tariffs will stay in place until the US eliminates its trade measures against Canada. 

Last month, the US levied tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum on EU, Canada and other nations.
