Trudeau Liberals silent as Trump bans Canadian goods and services from U.S. infrastructure projects

Rebel Staff

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...

NEXT: Remember when leftists eager to sabotage Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh even went through his school yearbooks to try to dig up dirt about him?

Well, turnabout is fair play, I guess:

After the Democratic governor of Virginia defended what amounts to infanticide, a conservative blog dug up his yearbook — and now the governor is being accused of posing in either a KKK robe, or a "blackface" costume.

Tonight, to make sense of all this, I'm joined by Pardes Seleh of Mediaite.com.

Who cares about trade? We just can’t forget the important accomplishments where Justin has been successful like PEOPLEKIND including women or Gender equity in his Cabinet. (50-50) even though 75% of the choices (THE PEOPLE ELECTED BY THE VOTERS) were men.

Some day this will change and 75% of the elected will be women. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE UPROAR by women if the PM put only 50% women in the Cabinet in that case?

That orange bastard told us who to deal with, then spanked our giant ass raw and we’re not supposed to hate him?
If China imports steel, exactly how many infrastructure jobs are lost??!
We’re a third world country! That’s it.
Send in Oxfam.
Enjoy your national debt you STUPID president Trump! Expanding big gov’t as a Republican!
Trump hurt America & he hurt Canada to get at China. He drove the bus straight into the target and took out everybody in an economic war.
The only damn solution is we sell to a developing South Amercia which China sells directly too or… We’re a third world country.
Are the Liberals wrong to hate Trump?
Where the hell are our Conservative leaders with their twitter feeds? Were ANY mentioned or is there supposed to be a black out to stop a national panic?
What rock am I under?
Just… F**k. Big time, “Oh f**k!”.
Good luck Rebel getting past the USA trade barrier.
But on the bright side, they still buy our lumber.
