Seems fair.

Courtesy of the New York Post:

Canadians have taken to practicing pocketbook diplomacy in defense of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is caught in a trade war of words with President Trump, by boycotting American goods and canceling vacations to the United States, according to a report.

Shoppers are shunning Kentucky bourbon, California wine, and Florida oranges, and avoiding American companies like Starbucks, Walmart and McDonald’s, Canadian network CTV News reported on Wednesday.

On Twitter, hashtags like #BuyCanadian, #BoycottUSProducts, and #BoycottUSA are spreading as outrage over Trump’s trade tariffs grows.

An Ottawa man posted a “Trump-free grocery cart” full of products from Canada or from “countries with strong leadership.”

Vacationers said they would be staying up north this summer instead of booking trips to the US.

“F –k you Trump. We just booked a $3,000 vacation to beautiful British Columbia. Happy anniversary to us. #Canadastrong #BuyCanadian #F***Tariffs,” tweeted Supreme Leader Lyna.

Well, I think we could have seen this coming. 

Instead of leaving the Prime Minister high and dry, the Canadian people, from all political parties, have circled the wagons to protect Justin Trudeau. 

I find it interesting that while Trump has caused a great ideological fracturing among the American people and pitted them against the rest of the world, that he has inspired such patriotism among the Canadian people. 

Hell, even some Americans are suddenly feeling patriotic about Canada.

    Donald will invade Canada and take all their maple syrup.

    American isolationism. A terrifying step towards destroying our Democracy. The question I’ve always wondered is, does Trump actually understand what he’s doing? Or is he just a willing tool? But in the end does it matter?

    Speak up! Act out! and VOTE for Democrats in every single election as it will be the only thing that will be able to halt the destruction of our political and social norms.

      If that’s not the truth!
      Might as well deconstruct the Statue Of Liberty; he is making a farce of it.

    Lol. A hashtag economy war! That should certainly last about 2 seconds.

    Sorry, but Trudeau is toast. Any Canadians living in places near the US border such as Vancouver are still doing their regular treks down to the good ole’ USA to buy shoes, jeans, clothes, you name it…. to avoid paying the extremely high taxes on the very same items purchased in Canada.

    The hippies lost Lebowski, the hippies will always lose!

      @ 10:52 am – Your comment sounds like sour grapes. Prime Minister Trudeau isn’t going anywhere. Sorry your feelings were hurt when Trudeau stood up for the country he was elected to protect. Trump can play the bully card all he wants but it’s not going to work with our Prime Minister.

        Get back to me with that sentiment after the 21st of October, 2019, 2:10.

        And that is only if there is a no confidence vote on his governance before then.

      LOL you must be old. Ever hear of the internet? No Canadian girl has to even leave her house to get her choice of Calvin Kleins any more.

        Again, to repeat, ‘get back to me with that sentiment after the 21st of October, 2019, 7:25.

        And that is only if there is a no confidence vote on his governance before then.’

          That’s the best you’ve got? Does it come with a wagging finger?

    Americans should vacation to Canada. At the very very least, take the time to go over the peace bridge at NiagaraFalls and spend time and money on the Canadian side. And be friendly and vocal about it. Let our friends know the majority of us are not happy.

    Trudeau is already slapping a high tariff on imported U.S.maple syrup to support domestic Canadian produced maple syrup.

    I hope Canadians also boycott Burger King and that coffee chain I can’t remember the name of that Burger King bought to avoid paying U.S. taxes. I haven’t patronized Burger King ever since they claimed they were Canadian and stopped paying taxes. Screw them.

    I think Canadians will be a lot more successful boycotting U.S. goods and services than the U.S has been boycotting China. Yeah, what happened to that? And wasn’t it France before that? The incident of the Freedom Fries? How’s that working out?

    Trump already lost his Canadian Trump hotel. He’s not doing well in Panama either.
