    • P M name these true Canadian products, except natural resources, pathetic

    • @Chaitan Reddy Tim Hortons sucks. Their regular coffee tastes like dishwater . If you buy dark roast, it tastes burnt. Haven’t been there in over a year.

      @Chez Helene The reason for this is because McDonalds went to TH and asked for an access deal to the coffee beans that TH had access to. TH refused, so McDonalds went out and bought out the contract from under TH, and cut TH’s access to those coffee beans. TH coffee now tastes like crap, but if you go to McDonalds for a coffee, it tastes like TH used to.

  2. I’ve always been confused: there’s nothing FREE about this Free trade deal. Doesn’t make sense.

      @John S no we make plans to make most things here money gets injected right back into the Canadian economy. It’s a win win. More Jobs more money staying within our economy. We can do this for most products. We have relied way to much on other countries.

      Same reason why we used to have employees pump gas at stations (2 cents cheaper across the street to pump your own gas) or most recently grocerie store check out clerks or self check out. If we allow those things to continue to happen we will all be out of work. Don’t be afraid to stand in line and save that persons job.

    • ๐Ÿคฃ The Unfair Trade Practices Have Been Coming From Canadian Govt For Ages. If There Is A Shaky Wall, Itโ€™s On Canadaโ€™s Side. Arenโ€™t You Supposed To Be โ€œAllies?โ€ Allies Donโ€™t CHEAT!

    • @Robi F keeping telling the lies to yourself.. believe that orange moron.๐Ÿ˜‚

    Simple solution just increase the production of aluminum Auto parts in Canadian factories. Then export them to the United States, you’ll get around the tariffs and create Canadian jobs

    • Certainly, Rio Tinto Alcan can and will adjust their supply chain.

      Do some research! Canada has less than 25% of the factory facilities it had in the 1980’s. In the GTA alone, in the 1980’s, 6,000 factory and manufacturing facilities of various sizes, JUST in the GTA, shut down completely!

  8. Aliens are coming soon thatโ€™s why so much is going on wake up everyone

  9. time to break free from the chains of govern mental slavery folks. it’s time.

      I check the labels when I shop for groceries. If there are two products, one Canadian and one American, I’ll buy Canadian.

      As you should, support your own economy first. That is what strengthens nations.

    I am certain he is quaking in his boots! This super flyweight Liberal government continues to embarrass Canadians!
    What a bunch of corrupt imbeciles! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค™

  19. Maybe, Trudop, should have attended the last trade meeting that he was invited too. But didn’t, I guess he was to busy, washing his Bart Simpson socks, and his panties, that day.

    This will all be sorted out after the next election when the Liberals get the boot
