    Federal budget and sport's tariffs

    I understand in the federal budget has removed the tariffs off sporting goods i.e. hockey equipment. Does anyone know if this also covers the tariff on bicycles? I can't seem to find if it does, but then again many of the details are not in the budget and may come after buried in another omnibus bill.

    "The Tories are keeping in place a tariff on assembled bicycles to protect domestic bike assemblers and manufacturers. Itís an industry with a relatively large presence in Quebec."

    Tariffs raised on imports from 70 countries

    Bicycles are imported as transportation not sporting goods. Dept store bikes are imported as toys which helps keep the Tariff off of them but require all those warning stickers. Cranks, Cassettes and Wheels fall under automotive parts. That is why in the last 4 years the cost of these items have almost doubled.

    I would think that most if not all Dorel products are made offshore and they would want any tariffs removed.
