  1. For items that are made in Canada/Ontario, stores should make that more apparent like they do in the grocery store.

      French’s ketchup FTW!

    • Put a maple leaf on those shelf price tags or alongside $/lb, put %canadian/Lb.

      I’ve noticed lately that the supermarkets in southern Ontario are indenting Canadian made foods and products and you’re right. Made in Canada please ..

    • Death B. Grapes
      No it will do the opposite.

    • @Judy Ives – Death B. Grapes said, “But doing this will inherently increase Canadian goods”. It appears to me that buying more Canadian manufactured goods would increase their production. I don’t understand how as you say the, “opposite”, would occur.

  2. I don’t want to see retaliatory tariffs. Let’s just bring more manufacturing here. As a consumer, I have been buying from Canadian companies and items made in Canada stuff!! ON top of all this nonsense, we’re dealing with contaminated onions from California…I’m done with the States. I hope we make massive stickers on everything that say “made in Canada!!”

      @Laurie VanDyk you sound triggered typing that on your American iphone 😂 go outside and look.. There’s American things everywhere . since you so Canadian.. Stop going to our store we sent over to Canada, eating our foods, using our technology, wearing our clothes. Listen, all I’m saying is Canada is still being breast fed. They do nothing but soak everything in. No culture plus your celebs don’t even want to stay in that dirty immergrant land

    • @Gene Hakman K lol

    Support made in Canada!

  4. Julie Fernandez | August 7, 2020 at 12:30 PM | Reply

    Excellent! Buy Canadian made 100%

  5. Canada arrested Huawei CFO for Trump so that he could get a better deal from the trade war. As a reward, Trump imposed tariffs on Canadian goods. What a joke.

  6. tired of being their political football. lets try it

  7. I will do my part.

    I agree if they put made in Canada 🇨🇦 with a Canadian logo I’m buying Canadian.

    Designed and made in Canada. All products we are able to conceive and afford.

  10. Have you ever noticed many products especially food products say “imported by” some Canadian company but does not say where it is actually from. I think it is high time we know where everything especially food comes from and insist it is made here!

  11. in order to buy canadian or ontarian the stores have to stock those items. everything comes from china or south america etc anywhere but here

  12. Ok. Who would have predicted that a pandemic (or international crisis) would have brought out the best in Mr. Ford? I’m so far beyond my initial judgments of his performance prior to this crisis to actually believing he is/was a great choice for premier and possibly, in the future, (given some time to grow) Prime Minister. 😷 or ☠️

    • Well I wouldn’t have said it before be he’s the best option to lead the CPC, nobody wants the current bunch, Scheer? O’Toole, McKay? lol really. The Libs will go unchallenged for another 10+ years until they cons get somebody who isn’t laughable.

    • @DÆXCII you missed 2 candidates you liberal pos. Call yourself a conservative you can only name 2 of the spineless candidates. You forgot about socialist lewis and the only choice to save canukistan Derek Sloan.

      pm ford pres coumo

  13. Right on!! Have been buying local for a while, even just for ecological reasons.

  14. I will do it with all my heart to support our country and our fellow Canadian.

  15. I actually agree with this. I love to buy local, so knowing that I am via the logo would be great.

  16. Please make everything in canada,I personally prefer everything made in canada

    And the worst part is, why do that to your neighbor ?

    • Jack Patterson | August 7, 2020 at 10:23 PM | Reply

      To protect our USA jobs..Just like Doug Ford is pushing made in Canada. Let’s take care of our own and stop playing these shop the world for the lowest wage games. We love you Canadians and together we can beat these greedy NAFTA and WTO advocates. All they want is to suck the life out of middle and low wage workers in our countries then pocket their profits.

  18. Time to cut the ties with the infested country south of the border. They apparently don’t appreciate the history of the relationship. Buy Canadian.

    trump has NO concept of right & wrong, only thinks about himself, CANADA, please forgive America, we’ll try to fix our, huge mistake in November.

  20. When the Canadian product costs you a bit more, think of that extra amount as an investment in your country and your life.

    • Easy to say if you can afford it, a big chunk of the country can’t.

    • @Gabe Clark Yes we can its only a few dollars increase do you not love you country enough to support it in time of need?

    • Ben Dover what do you mean it’s only a few dollars, a few dollars on everything you buy adds up, of course I would love nothing more to only buy everything Canadian made, which I 100% would if I could afford it. Canadian clothes vs other clothes is like a $60 difference for shirts.

    • @Gabe Clark Im not asking you buy everything Canadian ofc you should save money where you can. But try to buy things made in Canada more often.
