Trudeau (and Media Party) silent as Trump bans Canada from US infrastructure projects

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant ShowI reported on Donald Trump signing an executive order banning Canadian goods and services from hundreds of billions of dollars of American government contracts.

What I’m about to tell you is a secret in Canada.

At least, I cannot find a single media outlet that reported it, even though it was news announced at a noisy press conference by the noisiest president in a century.

On Thursday, January 31, Donald Trump signed an executive order banning Canadian goods and services from hundreds of billions of dollars of U.S. government contracts.

It doesn’t actually mention Canada by name. But of course Canada is by far the country that will be the most impacted — given the size of our trading relationship with the U.S., and the integration of our economies, and the nature of the products and services being banned.

I know you haven’t heard about this. You probably don’t even believe me, because it’s such shocking news, and it’s such a disaster. All you’ve heard from the Media Party instead is how amazing Chrystia Freeland, our foreign minister is, and how she totally wrestled that Donald Trump to the ground over NAFTA renegotiations. 

Tonight I'll show you excerpts from Trump's announcement, because no-one else in Canadian media has told you that we’re in a trade war now.

I’m not a trade lawyer, but after reading Trump's executive order in full, I think it means that Canadians won’t even be able to make the Keystone XL pipeline that Trump approved.

Now, Trudeau doesn’t care — he doesn’t want Canadians to build pipelines in Canada, so he can’t very well demand that Canadians be allowed to build pipelines in America. Or sell the steel for it.

Oh, by the way:

Canada created 9,300 jobs in the last month for which we have data. America created 304,000. They have nine times our population. But 32 times as much jobs growth.

What do you think this new "Buy American, Hire American" executive order will do to those numbers?

We are in a trade war, as bad as anything we’ve faced in a decade. That’s dangerous.

But just as dangerous is a media party — and political establishment, including Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives, I might add — who won’t say a word about it...

Some one posted on this previous subject , do we miss Harper yet . Let’s start by saying Canada wouldn’t ( BACK ) looking that stupid on the international stage , We would still have millions of tax dollars that weren’t blowin on virtue signaling and trying to impress the corrupt UN . Our heads wouldn’t be half way up the UN ass either , Canadians would still be proud of being Canadian . Citizenship would be something cherished not like the cheapening the Liberals have made it . Our budgets would have had a surplus and taxes would be lower . US and Canada would still be great allies , Canadians would see the benefits to having a great US president not the same rubber stamped politician . Our borders would be closed to illegals and the RCMP wouldn’t be bell hops at the border but doing the job they were hired for . Alberta and Saskatchewan would be booming and we would be using Canadian oil and gas . But alas we have incompetence from the top down . You get what you vote for sometimes .

Trudeau knows nothing about leadership, honor, patriotism or even how to be a man of integrity but he has mastered treason, arrogance and how to bow to the evil of islam. Yes, Canada will remember Trudeau… for the traitor he is and the damage he inflicted on this nation. This is what muslims do to non muslim nations. They destroy them to the very foundation. This is the legacy of Trudeau.

Is Trump’s Executive Order requiring that US Government-funded infrastructure projects (i.e. US taxpayer-funded projects) use US material suppliers in non-compliance of the NAFTA, or the USMCA trade agreement, which is not yet ratified?

Don’t Canadian Government-funded infrastructure projects also require that Canadian goods & services be used exclusively if they can be supplied by Canadians companies?

Unless this Executive Order is in breach of the US trade agreement with Canada currently in force, why should Canadian industry expect to be allowed to bid on projects funded by the US government?

Trudeau and Freeland did far too much virtue signalling and being two-faced with President Trump these last two years and now all of Canada will pay the price for that.

‘Billy Howard’ who commented here has a good idea, only I think it is Maxime Bernier who should be the messenger. Scheerdeau has already proven himself to be a media party lackey and a political puppet.

“We are in a trade war, as bad as anything we’ve faced in a decade. That’s dangerous.”

The dangerous part about the trade war is that Tinker Bell is our General….and Scheer-the-steer would have no idea how to handle it either.

“It is Andrew Scheer who says that you are all fuddly-duddly. "

Heh. Scheer-the-steer couldn’t even bring himself to say that, JANIE.

As for Trump and turdo, they’re both narcissistic arseholes. It’s just that their arsehole is a lot smarter than our arsehole.

Hey Andy, here’s some free advice: Embrace and GIVE CREDIT to some of Trump’s policies (like MCGA, border control, independent environmental policy, etc). Promote a “reset” of our partnership with the USA in October. Trudeau will have a tough time holding his tongue and, IMO, will lose control, and Cdns will see his Trump derangement for what it is: pathological and dangerous to our nation’s future.

Trudeau(every night); mirror mirror on the wall, who is the greatest politician of all. Is it me, who is so brave and cute and cuddly?

No sir, No sir; It is Andrew Scheer who says that you are all fuddly-duddly.

Bizarre pretty much sums it up.
Trudeau is the ultimate narcissist.
It’s not that he’s “just not ready” to be a national leader, it’s that he cares only about virtue signaling to feed his ego-maniacal personality disorder. And why would he care about a country he deems as “post-national” anyways.
For Scheer to be complicit is a tragedy.
MSM is just following orders.
We’re soooo screwed.
