Dear BTAC Members, Stakeholders and Friends:
As you are aware, BTAC has been aggressively involved in representing its members at the CITT regarding an interim review of an order made concerning bicycles, assembled or unassembled, with wheel diameters of 16 inches (40.64 cm) and greater, originating in or exported from Chinese Taipei and the People’s Republic of China, excluding bicycles with an FOB Chinese Taipei or People’s Republic of China selling price exceeding CAN$225 and excluding bicycles with foldable frames and stems.
We have been advised today by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal - CITT - that our interventions to have the order rescinded were successful.
This now allows BTAC to lobby the federal government to add bicycles to its tariff elimination pilot announced in the 2013 budget. We now move our efforts to securing a political victory regarding tariff elimination.
Winning a political victory has already begun. We will be in contact with you shortly with a number of ways in which you can help BTAC in our political campaign.
In the meantime, please contact Sue Hall at
if you know your local conservative MP.
