Duh, Ms, Stephenson – “Do we want to kill our domestic dairy industry for the sake of helping American farmers, the sole beneficiary of Trump’s demands?”… Nobody is killing nobody if the artificial barriers stand at 270 per cent!… It’s simply that a a few hundred “artificially propped millionaires” will have to face long overdue economic reality.. Duh…

Andrew Stephenson the CWB ruined many farms including 2 in my family.

Andrew Stephenson they are not fleeing the US , they are coming for better freebies. And we are under no obligation to take them and we do not vet them worth a damn. And Justin is doing both. Step outside your bubble and see.

Andrew Stephenson Canada had their dairy tariff in place before Trump so spare me your BS. And if it is to protect Canadian farmers then why can Trump not protect his farmers? True free trade is not screwing us. You are sadly misinformed. And what would be horrible about Canadians having cheaper milk? Only a communist thinks the government is God. Farmers are better off without the WCB being forced on them. And if you dent that then explain why it was good for the West while the lack of it was good for the East?

Before the dauphin took office , Trudeau promised a “budget that would balance itself” by 2019. Now, it’s going to take a couple of generations…make no mistake, he planned to tank our economy and flood the country with Soros specific invaders. "

Except he’s neither “tanking” the economy, nor “flooding the country with invaders”. The economy’s doing great (0.5% in May is 6% annualized) and the migrants are fleeing the US, which means we have no selectivity (nor are the numbers akin to “flooding”. A few tens of thousands is less than rounding error on estimates).

Andrew Stephenson Trump’s tariffs have been reactionary , he wants all of them gone. Go talk to Justin who will not give up his. And try keeping up with what is really going on. "

Yeah, reactionary, because we refuse to allow Trump to screw us. Our counter-tariffs are also reactionary.

Amy Lynn you have been bailing out farmers for a long time if you have bought any dairy products. They are not allowed a free market by the libs.”

What’s’ the alternative? To have them drowned by flooding the market with subsidized American products? Do we want to kill our domestic dairy industry for the sake of helping American farmers, the sole beneficiary of Trump’s demands?

It`s criminal that Canada doesn`t have a capable federal government. This NAFTA deal and many others would have been signed sealed and delivered a long time ago with real talent behind it. But no Trudeau chose the most incompetent Lieberals he could find because they were his friends.

Thanks to Soy Boy Trudeau and his band of useless misfits another trade deal has gone south. And Canada will pay the price.

Amy Lynn if other countries impose them why can the US not do so?

Amy Lynn you have been bailing out farmers for a long time if you have bought any dairy products. They are not allowed a free market by the libs. And you sometimes subsidized other farmers during the CWB dictatorship.

Has anybody heard “Nobel Prize winner in Economics” Paul Krugman acknowledge his stupid doom and gloom predictions the night Trump was elected?… Didn’t think so… The one overriding feature of lefties is that they CANNOT admit having been wrong, wrong, wrong… Some would say that is “childish”, I would say it is more like “psychotic”…

So far Trudeau is on track to spend 40 billion on migrants but don’t worry that’s not in the budget .
commented 2018-08-01 22:08:00 -0400
So far Trump has had to use $12 billion taxpayer dollars to bail out US farmers because of his tariffs.

“Most economists approve Trump’s tariff policies”

You didn’t read past the title, then? It says right in that Breitbart article that they don’t like tariffs specifically, even if they broadly approve of the state of the economy.

Actual direct quote: “Unsurprisingly, most of the participants in the CNBC Fed survey are not fans of tariffs, with 59 percent saying it will reduce economic growth and 54 percent saying it will reduce employment.”
