    Why is Trump trying to start a trade war with Canada ?
    Does trump not realize that Canada is not the problem.
    It seems that he won't go after the elephant in the room(China).

    Here is a comparison of Canada and USA wages.

    According to the website numbeo.com, the average income of an American and aCanadian are approximately the same amount. Canada's after-tax monthly i.ncome is about CAD $3,000 which totals around CAD $36,000per year. The U.S. sits just belowCanada at approximately CAD $2,942 per month, or roughly CAD $35,300 per year.Oct 16, 2012

    I'm getting ready to purchase my next Mountain bike and it is made in Canada(including the raw materials).
    I don't have the same option of buying a USA made bike because every major bicycle company builds in Asia

    Last time I checked PM Kevin tredeau was locking up illegals crossing the border from the usa by the 1000s

    So you could say the trade wars are not limited to just consumer goods

    I watch this process being carried out at a crossing. The Canadian police told the migrant if you cross this line I have to arrest you.
    They were apprehensive but then walked across and were arrested, it was all carried out politely.
    They have a chance there to become legal so they go.

    The Democrats are all of a sudden very pro nafta. Strange, after telling your union member constituents for the last 20 years, what a bad deal it is....

    Trade spats with Canada are nothing new they just don't get much publicity. Several years ago a cow with mad cow's disease (bovine encephalitis) came into the Northwest from CN, which prompted the US to ban imports of cows from them. Then there was the 'tater wars where the US at least temporarily halted the import of Canadian potatoes. PEI is renowned for their spuds, seed spuds in particular. In retaliation CN banned the importation of American potato chips. It's kind of funny but it is what happened.

    Who cares. Living where I do, we should get rid of Canadian trucks too. Too many hadji's driving for trans x. And all that steel that they pull down here can go on American trucks.

    Good. That's a win/win. Pack your bags and head North. Trudeau wants to pay for your entire lifestyle.

    America is currently infected with hypocritical bovine scatology that is spewed from the mouths of the Democrats. Can we work a deal with Canada to trade them?

    Who's smart and who's not so smart

    Seems like it's easyer to scare people then to give them confidence.
    Here they always claim the next bogyman is after us and buy more rockets . airplanes on and on.
    Somebody is making a lot of money off of all that stuff.
    Look at the gun sales here to civilians.
    They must be afraid of something buying all those guns.

    Can't do much about it, too many knuckleheads live here. :idunno:

    If I were a young man I may have done that.
    I'm thinking without looking it up that they are happier then citizens south of that border.
    But thats just a guess

    The best thing there is for gun sales Is having you gun grabbers in control.

    That’s always my question. People throw a fit about Mexican drivers (I do too); but where I drive it almost appears 3 out of 5 trucks are Canadian based.... I thought they could make one delivery, and one pick up heading back to Canada. It appears they come and do whatever they want?

    To ensure Peace, Prepare for War.

    Bullies pick on the weak, not the strong. Bullies never picked on my 4 kids. Well, bullies never tried twice, anyway....
