Why Trudeau wants a trade war with Trump

On last night's show, I explained why Justin Trudeau actually does want to start a trade war with Trump.

Trudeau wants to cast Trump as the enemy and campaign as the world's "anti-Trump" hero in next year's federal election.

WATCH my video to see how Trudeau insulted Trump and why I think renegotiating NAFTA is in Canada's interest.

America wants our steel and aluminum. But if we aren’t prepared to negotiate out of fear, we will lose everything. Fear of what? competing in the free market? Negotiate for level playing ground, and grow a pair. There is no need or excuse for holding onto this stupid dairy quota ,which was the start of all this. Trump will negotiate with a leader who wants to negotiate. Justin digging his stiletto heels in will do none of us any good. If steel and aluminum goes, we will be a hurtin. It is ridiculous to think we can make up the losses in Europe.

Justin is a petulant child and his puppet masters are gunning for a break down of our economy, and in turn our society. You have to ask yourself why those who are supposed to be looking out for us would do such a thing.

Justin wants a trade war with the U.S. Yeah he does. He seems more than happy to start a fight.
Justin tried to make out that the sunshine clause was the big barrier in negotiations. Then Trump gave him that card and cut the sunshine clause out. Justin pretended it never happened. Its not going to be pretty and if you are one of those silly people who think that big old meanie Trump is to blame and boy is Justin ever going to stand up for Canada, may I suggest you do some actual homework.

1) educate yourselves about dairy quotas, what they mean to Canadians, not just the 10,000 to 13,000 dairy farmers in the entire country. We pay way more for Dairy than we should and this monopoly, which only protects a few farmers, putting the rest out of business, wields too much political power, and has brainwashed us into thinking we need them, and should protect them.

2) Look at what province has the bulk of the dairy quotas and how that is held over politicians heads come voting day. It is a hollow threat propped up by fear and propaganda. Quebec has over half, then Ontario, a slightly smaller number and then a few here and there in other provinces. The two main voting blocks hold the majority of the quotas. All this fuss for just under 10,000 farmers.

3) Large dairy outfits have come under scrutiny for abuses of their animals. I’m sure its not all , but some big ones definitely have.

4) Our dairy is over priced, that affects our pockets, and means the industry can’t compete with global prices except on products used in cheese making etc, exported in a different category so as to not to have the same tariff formula attached to it.
Its well over time for a shake up. Well over time for smaller farms to get creative in an open market. Who wouldn’t like to see more farmers taking a piece of the pie and the pie is enormous in the free market. Yes its hard. Compete or die. No subsidies or fair subsidies must be negotiated, so no one country has that sort of advantage over the other, so as to eliminate ‘dumping’.

5) Finally, the cost of ending dairy quota’s and giving fair payouts to around 10,000 farmers would be cheaper for all of us on every level, in the end.
