"So at this summit, we expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the United States to apply tariffs to steel and aluminum imports".

"Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks ... and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally", Ms Freeland told reporters in Quebec City on Sunday.

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada.
