Trudeau Forced To Explain Economics To Trump As He Threatens Trade War With Canada-

 

"Trudeau spoke out Tuesday against new tariffs being imposed by the Trump administration on softwood lumber imports from Canada.

“There are millions of good U.S. jobs that depend on the smooth flow of goods, services and people back and forth across our border,” Trudeau said. “You cannot thicken this border without hurting people on both sides of it.”

 

Not only is Trudeau right to defend the interests of his own country, but he is also standing up for the American people as well, since they, too, will be hurt by Trump’s move.

 

As CBC noted in a tweet, Trump’s tariff would make U.S. houses more expensive and cost American workers hundreds of millions of dollars in the form of lost wages.....

So, what's up with THIS?

 

http://www.cbc.ca/ne...-show-1.4079144

            

 

Does Canada even HAVE a second amendment?

 

That's similar to the U.S. 2nd?

 

Or is this( as I suspect) a case of American nutjobs encroaching Canadian soil?

 

And how does killing Jackson Browne assure protection of any constitutional amendment ?   :wacko:

 

 

Sepiatone

 

What's so hard to understand about this, Sepia? In fact, you can bet that you yourself hit upon the very explanation for this, and with your above sentence which I highlighted.

 

I mean first, the idiot American who OBVIOUSLY made those fliers would once again show how so many of his ilk have the education level of a freakin' 10 year old, what with the idiot incorrectly spelling the word "Canadians" on his flier, but SECONDLY the idiot ALSO doesn't seem to know that Canada does not have a "Second Amendment" in any form or manner which resembles the "right to bear arms" that's in the U.S. Constitution.

 

(...and so, considering just THESE two points AND the thought that the vast majority of Americans pretty know diddly-SQUAT about the country to our north and other than that it's DAMN cold up there half the year, once again you can BET your freakin' HOUSE that it was some dumb freakin' under-educated, paranoid, right wing, rural hick, nut job AMERICAN who was responsible for that)

Kevin O’Leary, a reality-TV celebrity and neophyte politician who has taken a Trumplike approach to his quest for the Conservative leadership, says illegal crossings are “unacceptable” and that Canada must beef up its border security to avert a flood of refugees. “I don’t want what’s happening in Europe to happen in Canada,” he said in a recent campaign video.

‘Build that wall?’ Some Canadians are calling for more border control, too

This get-tough approach reflects public opinion surveys that show a hardening of attitudes among some Canadians toward the asylum seekers and immigration in general, placing political pressure on the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canadian news recently has been full of images of migrants trudging across snow-covered fields and through icy ditches, hauling small children and suitcases as they cross into Quebec, Manitoba and other provinces from U.S. border states. The phenomenon has gained momentum since Donald Trump was elected president in November.

They have been lax, how else can you explain the dumping of billions of gallons of raw sewage. Even Trudeau said he is fine with dumping sewage, he wants the money spent elsewhere. This is why they should not be preaching to anyone else.

 

Being the partisan that you are, you refuse to address what Trump now wants to do to the ETA while blasting Canada. Yup, you're a hypocrite.

Sewage flows into Toronto harbour regularly, says new advocacy group report

Sewage flows into Toronto's inner harbour regularly from nine "hotspots," states a new report from a local environmental advocacy group.

In a video released on Thursday, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper outlined the findings of 10 sampling trips in the harbour throughout the summer. Samples were tested for E. coli, a bacteria indicating the presence of sewage.

    Billions of litres of raw sewage, untreated waste water pouring into Canadian waterways

Two-thirds of the more than 160 samples collected failed to meet Ontario governmental standards for protection, the group said.

And, on one day, the team found E. coli levels near Bathurst Street and Queen's Quay West were 700 times higher than Ontario's swimming standards.

"The bacteria levels were off the charts," said Krystyn Tully, vice president of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper.
