Yup.

I wonder how many Americans are aware of the fact that their government subsidizes their dairy industry to tune of $20 billion per year ?

Trump's little extortion game on our softwood lumber industry was because of his pissing match with Trudeau over the dairy trade.

Trump, again, claiming that it's Canada's fault for the US's failings on how it handles its dairy industry and the instability brought on by those failings.

Our country has tightly controlled regulations in place to make sure that our dairy farmers don't suffer through feast and famine. The US doesn't have those types of policys in place.

So any trade deals with Canada over the dairy industry (in favour of the US or not) isn't going to just magically fix the US's dairy instability problem. That's an internal thing that no outside entity can fix for you.

The guy is fricken clueless.

Funnily enough, if you google around, one will stumble on a PDF (U.S. Timber Production, Trade, Consumption and Price Statistics 1965–2011) on www.fpl.fs.fed.us... that shows we're not exactly innocent in the whole cheap lumber fiasco anyway.

We export our own, have it refined, then import it back in on the cheap to avoid labor costs. And we have the stones to cry over Canadian wood?

I didn't know that.

But I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

The big problem is that the US has a population of 330+ million, which translates to a neverending high demand for construction grade softwood lumber. A demand that cannot be made from US forests alone.

If Trump thinks he's going to MAGA by way of slapping tariffs on his largest softwood trade partner resulting in hammering the US construction industry and ultimately the taxpayers....

Time for Trump and his motley crew of clowns to wake up and smell the pine 2x4's.



In the short term, Canadians will lose jobs over this, particularly in British Columbia. But in the long term we will prevail because we have a high quality product that can easily be sold elsewhere.

And by the looks of things, that's exactly what we need to do. The US will have to meet its needs from somewhere else.

Trump has changed the game drastically.



I hear Russian softwood lumber is just as good as ours because of the similar climate....

Unfortunately Trudeau doesn't have the brains or the balls to figure out that we have the upper hand in this situation...

Dude is all about money, just like every other politician...

as long as his crew can lie, cheat and steal their way into a bigger paycheck, they'll do whatever they need to

I sort of agree with that statement, but in this particular case I think Trudeau will have no choice but to take a hard stance.

All of Canada is now watching this closely and we will be holding his feet to the fire every inch of the way.

I'll be damned if I'm going to sit back and watch our fellow brethren in British Columbia lose their jobs over Trump's game playing and Trudeau's attempt at playing "nicey nicey" about it all.

Unacceptable.

They sell our roads to foreign investors to line their own pockets... as they charge us to use our own land...

they sell our utilities to foreign investors to line their own pockets... as they charge us to use what we supply to our people...

Our government is useless to its populous... corrupt, and repulsive

You really think they're not going to lay down for this moron in a suit?

Yeah, to be honest I'm already pretty sick and tired of all the game playing going on now with this new president south of the 49th parallel.

I now strongly believe that we need to drastically cut down on our trade deals with the US and find new countries that actually want to honour a partnership with us.... it's just not worth the headache anymore.

I don't appreciate seeing my country being dragged into the neverending Trump Soap Opera™.

Enough is enough.

To be honest, I have no idea what our government is going to do about all of this other than to take it to court (again) and have the tariffs dropped (again).

Beyond that, all we can do is hope that Trudeau actually does have a pair of brass kahunas hiding under his beige Dockers.

If he doesn't, he'll get shredded in the next election and become yet another one-hit wonder that will disappear into the history books.

Yup, i've felt that for a long time. They're forking it all up like the tards that they are. Hell a toddler could run it better and with more logic than most of Parliament. People have to see it's all crap and being done on purpose to screw the average tax payer in nether places we shall not mention. Any retard can see what those who Govern most of the planet is going on. People just choose to turn their head and pretend it's not happening. I won't mention Trump just now, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. I want to see him move a few mountains, sh't that the last idiots have failed to do.

Well we've turned into a two party system sadly enough... so even if he gets the boot, we'll just get the other guys...

*shrug*

the dreaded socialists have nothing to say about elections anymore... even though last time they had a bit of power we got universal healthcare...

hmmm

we just watch the drama unfold, and pay for every second of it...

Its just tariffs, not a war. If they don't want to pay it ship to Japan, they need lumber.

That is one of the pseudo promises Trump made about increasing tariffs, to 'bring home companies and create jobs here'.

How he plans to produce canadian lumber here is a well kept secret.
