The ruling by the World Trade Organization (WTO) announcing $1.01 billion in annual retaliatory tariffs by Canada ($781 million) and Mexico ($227 million) will be imposed on, as yet, unspecified products.  The level of retaliatory tariffs, as well as the specific products, could be announced as early as the week of December 14, 2015.
