Canadians back PM's handling of Trump attacks, tariffs: polls

  • У США більше довіряють Трюдо ніж Трампу – опитування

The dispute between US President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken a new turn as angry Canadians have come together to show Trump the repercussion of insulting their nation and their leader at a global platform. But do we really know what we're getting ourselves into? That deadline has been extended several times as Canada and Mexico struggle to accommodate far-reaching US demands for change. The New York Post reports that many patriotic-minded Canadians are boycotting American products in stores and even cancelling already-planned vacations to the U.S.

In an economic fight with the USA, we would inevitably be bringing a knife to a gunfight.

Dairy farmers on P.E.I., MacNevin said, are anxious that if the USA wins greater access to Canadian markets with NAFTA, the US could potentially join CPTPP too and flood Canada's market - putting the supply-management system in a stranglehold.

Companies don't want to invest into uncertain climates, and when business investment stalls, so does job creation.

The poll also found a majority of Americans and Canadians are united in support of Trudeau and opposition to Trump in their countries' stand-off over the renegotiation of the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The new version, which contains tweaks and the suspension of chapters important to the USA, requires six parties to ratify it before a free trade zone can be established.

Ouch. That certainly puts things in perspective.

That deadline has been extended several times as Canada and Mexico struggle to accommodate far-reaching U.S. demands for change such as a sunset clause that would allow one nation to pull out after five years.

China threatens tariffs on United States lobsters as business booms
In the statement , Trump said those measures would be implemented only if the Chinese strike back at Friday's move. Trump's first announced that the U.S. would impose trade penalties on about $50 billion of Chinese goods in March.

But "the political blowback from states (including those that voted for him), businesses and Congress could overwhelm (Trump's) administration", Katsoras wrote.

Markets for services and public procurement are also being opened.

For that reason, Katsoras still believes that Trump won't pull the trigger and cancel NAFTA.

Italy's challenge to CETA comes after U.S. President Donald Trump backed out of a joint communique agreed by Group of Seven leaders in Canada at the weekend that mentioned the need for "free, fair and mutually beneficial" trade and the importance of fighting protectionism.

On Friday, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue visited the farm of Canadian Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay in the idyllic province of Prince Edward Island (PEI), best known as the fictional home of Anne of Green Gables. Those words ring more true than ever today, but it seems we may have waited too long, and there's precious little we can do but fight a trade war in defense of our economic interests.

"F***k you Trump. We just booked a $3,000 vacation to attractive British Columbia".
