Trudeau escalates trade war with Trump, and Canadian military pays the price

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

For a year and a half as he campaigned for president, Donald Trump threatened some of America’s largest trading partners with import taxes or other penalties.

So you’d think that while Trump was threatening Mexico and China, the smart thing to do for Canada would be to be very quiet.
But no.

Just weeks before the U.S. election last year, Trudeau brought in a new import tax on U.S. dairy products.

Then came Trudeau’s next self-inflicted wound, for another protected, coddled, subsidized Quebec industry — namely Bombardier. Trudeau gave them more than $300 million in new subsidies.

And then, Bombardier gave its senior executives raises and bonuses of 50 per cent.

So last month Boeing, a U.S. competitor to Bombardier, filed a complaint. Whatever subsidy the Canadian government gives Bombardier, Boeing wants the U.S. government to tack that price back on in taxes.

Here’s the worst part:

Our Canadian military needs new fighter jets.

But they’re being used as a hot potato here, so Trudeau can get back at Trump.

This won’t end well.

Not for Canadian taxpayers, not for the Canadian economy, not for the Canadian military that needs new equipment.

Baby Doc Trudeau was never up to the job. His financial experience was receiving cheques from his trust funds, the pocket money Papa Doc Trudeau gave him, or the gushing idiots paying obscene funds to listen to him talk about “time and space” and “get science-fictiony”.

He wants to “rethink” (as if he can simply think) the F35. He wants to order F16 in the meantime. If he had any intelligence, or the people working with him, under him, or pulling his strings, the choice would be the F-22, which fits in nicely if he does finally buy the F-35 and on its own a great replacement for the F-18. Either way, he puts Canadian suppliers to the F-35 at risk of not having sales. Genius, n’est pas?

He seems to think that he has the ability to poke the dragon and come out alive. He should resign, go off to the woods with his buckskins, and listen to the off-key tones of his wife, Princess Has-no-brains, singing him lullabies. Please!

No problem for Jihadi Justin. He doesn’t like the military anyways except to ferry him around at taxpayer expense on Challenger jets! Dark days just beginning Canada!

Giddy says there is nothing wrong with a generous immigration policy. Screw that!
Assist insitu. We do not need to bring them here. Those wishing to make Canada their home can apply and go through the channels, stricked channels. Why would we want to have every Tom, Dick and Harry coming in, and why would we want a ‘generous’ policy. We do not need that many more people, contrary to the narrative. Train Canadians , there are enough of us to fill the jobs. I’d move to Japan where they have very little immigration, if it weren’t so hard to get in.

I agree with Brigitte Gabriel. “the choice is clear, borders or terror. No you don’t get a third option. This is the real world, not a sociology class.”

Extreme for our example here in Canada? It can’t happen here? Since we are going down the exact same path as Europe and other ruined countries we will be finding out in short order.

If the Boy Blunder had any brains he might have noted that unlike a decades long custom, the American President did not make Ottawa his first foreign trip but rather headed off to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Europe… In other words, the Boy Blunder just had his pickle nose bloodied on the international stage, and I guess it’s up to Buttskie to explain to him what that implies down the road for Canada/US relations…

I am just surprised the federal government doesn’t just throw money at Bombardier to manufacture a military fighter jet.

After devastating Canada’s economy and blaming it on “Trump”, Trudeau will receive the virtue signaling prestige he yearns for.
By picking on Donald the Bully, Canada will suffer. Rather than try to be friends, Justin wants to make the US under Trump the enemy. And that’s GREAT in the opinion of other globalists like Merkel and Macron.
Canada will become a “terrorist hotbed EU clone” at best but more likely an economically depressed country like Mexico. Only then will illegals stop wanting to come to “3rd world Canada”. Meanwhile, Trudeau retires on a Caribbean island with his trust fund and “Foundation” money.

“I’m sick of the non-action and the media blackout concerning the actual number of illegal migrants walking into Canada. This secrecy is unacceptable! "

Junior learnt well at the knee of his [adoptive] father. Pierre passed several laws in secrecy, when eventually found out by the general population it was basically set in stone and could not be changed. His son apparently is operating in the same manner. Unbelievably the Libtards had the audacity to call Harper a dictator, the true dictator is Trudeau and his caucus of clowns, the proof continues to accumulate.

I doubt that America would sell Canada any Fighter Aircraft, they don’t know how many Muslims are in the Canadian Air Force.

Due to the UK having just purchased 250 Billion Pounds Sterling worth of Fighters, from the US, they are not short of work right now, anyway.

What is Trudeau’s real agenda? Keep in mind that his Brother lives in Saudi Arabia, making Thrill Kill videos or something.
What ever his agenda is, it is sure to be Halal.

- Why is Trudeau provoking a trade war? He’s spending Canada into a recession so he can justify spending Canada out of a recession. That’s a disaster in the making & he needs a distraction. It’s not about winning a trade war, it’s an attempt to make the Americans the bad guys while the Liberals drive the Canadian economy into the ground.

- Fixing the “refugee” problem would take a leader that actually cared about Canada. Unfortunately Canada is being run by an idiot mad-child globalist.

- The mainstream media doesn’t have a whole lot of credibility left to destroy.

So tell me why this kid gets a pass. Hell his

mother smuggled drugs in his old mans luggage
in the early 70’s. He apparently prays at a muslim
mosque and that makes him an isis supporter. As far
as thinking he’ and his lefty clinton, oramabama, will
defeat the right, he’s dreaming, in techni-color. If it’s
pushed there will be a civil war in the US. Then if these
terrorists think they can attack US and hide in Canada,
think again kid. The US will take over Canada. In the end
there will be nuclear war. Trudope will run and hide along
with the rest of his spineless liberals. Get the hell out of our
country you gutless wonder.

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Trudeau sees himself as the ant-Trump.

Yes Ezra, several Lefty politicians have openly expressed Merkle envy!!

Hopefully there is a media other than the Manchester Guardian and BBC on the ground in Manchester. Otherwise we won’t know anything. That said, BBC reports current dead at 19. Pray for their families.

Ezra, I think you are right Justin would prefer to buy no aircraft at all for the military. A fracas with Trump gives Justin the perfect excuse to do nothing.

Trudeau and Freeland are in for a surprise, they are starting something they cannot finish re: Boeing military contract. It seems they think bringing a knife to a gunfight is a good strategy! Our military should not have to pay the price for their stupidity.

Is it me, or does Goodale seem like he is giving media interviews post-lobotomy?!
The border and the security of Canadians is wide open to criminals & the problems of the third world. Our nation is facing an invasion, which the traitors running the government refuses to address, we will be subjected to crime; disease; radicalized ideology; and, ever worsening economic decline under the Liberals.
I’m sick of the non-action and the media blackout concerning the actual number of illegal migrants walking into Canada. This secrecy is unacceptable!

So happy this afternoon when Tommy posted an update, and was able to celebrate his son’s birthday with his family.
Justice for Chelsea has supporters world-wide and I thank Tommy for reporting Chelsea’s horrific ordeal and shining a light on the ineffectual justice system that has turned it’s back on this brave young woman who had the courage to come forward.

I think the Liberals fully intend to run against Trump in the next Canadian federal election. The CBC, Global, Bellglobe Media, Toronto Star etc. have set Trump up as the bogeyman. Justin and Cryin Chrys only care about power and keeping the good times rolling for the Liberal party faithful. The economic havoc suffered by the rest of us due to a dust up with Trump is just collateral damage.

As I was watching this news broke of the rock concert bombing on theREBEL twitter feed…..notable among the tweets was the fact that Tommy’s wife Paula was mother hening and minding 50 kids who fled the carnage and was trying to contact their parents…..I will find a way to fund raise for Tommy….whatever it takes.

The Chelsea video reminds me of the Bill 6 protests. First, I have to say that the Bill 6 problems are well below the order of a gang raped woman whose attackers are not facing justice. My point is that the common people who work, pay tax, and want to have a safe life are screwed over by political elites. The peaked caps in this video represents the common worker, who is ignored because they are just common scum.

Go Chelsea go, show who the real scum bags are.

We should’ve never given up our aviation industry with the Avro arrow… That plane at the time was beyond state of the art and was a better aircraft made in Canada that worldwide competitors could not keep up with… The Americans forced us to abandon the program and now we’re paying the price..
Taxpayers money cannot not go to increase the salaries or provide bonuses for any Canadian company’s CEO’s.. it is bad enough and insulting to every taxpaying Canadian when the money is used to keep a company floating but the idea of taxpayer money going for increases in salary and multi million dollar bonuses to their chief executive officer’s is unconscionable.!!

the under 40 crowd elected this teenager in a man job and they seem to go gaga over the name trudeau. Well they elected an inept teenage and I hope they like what they got. I never liked his dad and hated him when he introduced Wage and Price controls for 3 years. Everything you buy went up in price for 3 years and my wages were frozen for three years I lost over 10 thousand dollars and thats with all the overtime added on. As in a strike you never gain it back.

Re: Bombardier

Ezra, you are wrong. Quebec did not give Bombardier 1 Billion, Alberta did. Provincial Equalization.
