    Canada parliament condemns U.S. attack on Trudeau, country simmers
    Canada's House of Commons on Monday unanimously condemned the personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by U.S. President Donald Trump and his surrogates as the famously polite nation simmered over the weekend broadsides by its U.S. ally.

    Lawmakers gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminum, hit by U.S. tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government's response to the Trump administration's verbal attacks on Trudeau.

    The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by U.S. officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations."

    The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

    Americans launch #ThankCanada campaign after Trump attacks Trudeau

    Americans launch #ThankCanada campaign after Trump attacks Trudeau
    Bruce Heyman, who was U.S. ambassador to Canada during President Barack Obama’s administration, called on Navarro in a tweet to formally apologize to Trudeau for his “insulting and inappropriate remarks.” Joining that view was Nicholas Burns, a former U.S. undersecretary of state under President George W. Bush, who called Canada “the best neighbor we could have.”

    Burns said that Navarro would have been fired if he had made those sorts of remarks under any other U.S. president and added, “Trump will likely reward him.”
    Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council who also attended the G-7 summit, countered Navarro by insisting that “there is a special place in heaven for Justin Trudeau,” and thanked Canada for “the perfect organization” of the meeting.

    On Twitter, Americans used the #ThankCanada and #ThanksCanada hashtags to praise their neighbor. They cited Canada’s welcome of transatlantic flights diverted to Newfoundland after the Sept. 11, 2011, attacks, as well as its role in spiriting U.S. diplomats out of Tehran in the wake of the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. Some thanked Canada for maple syrup, Leonard Cohen or early adoption of same-sex marriage.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, facing the threat of a trade war from U.S. President Donald Trump, has unanimous domestic support for now but to keep a firm hold on power must wring concessions from an unwilling powerful dairy lobby in order to mollify Washington. He and other U.S. politicians have long demanded Canada’s system of domestic dairy protections either be abolished or heavily modified to give American exports a bigger share.

    But Trudeau – like many prime ministers before him – has little room for maneuver. Dairy farmers, who number about 11,000, have an outsized influence in Canadian politics, being concentrated in the vote-rich provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The Dairy Farmers of Canada lobby group, which had earlier voiced the suspicion Trudeau might try to sell them out, met the prime minister for 25 minutes on Tuesday and said he had reassured them of his backing.

    Trudeau is simply too stupid to recognize what's in his better interest.

It was not very nice, eh? We have had darn much aboot enough of you, eh?" The Parliament later apologized for their use of foul language, but explained that they had just finished several two-fers and were a little bit angry.

    I think this is the fourth or fifth time I’ve seen you write that but you’ve never said what he’s done or said that you think is stupid.

    Incidentally - this was an NDP motion. The NDP party tabled it. Trudeau just voted for it, as did literally every other party with a seat in the the House. So why you would link this NDP motion that was universally agreed to to Trudeau’s intelligence is even more confusing.

    I wonder how long it will take whoever we elect in 2020 to undo Trump's legacy of alienating our closest allies? It could be a monumental task.

    Really? You need a list or something of a demonstration of how Trudeau, for his own safety shouldn't be walking the floor without protective head gear.

    He's done 2 things that are actually positive for Canada, and about 20 others that sit somewhere between poorly thought out to treasonous.

    Fuck dude... even the liberals want nothing to do with him he's that poison.
