    Dude needs therapy. And lots of it.

    ETA: Earlier today he stated to the press that he believed his relationships with foreign leaders like Trudeau were a "10."

    Infinity? But you know - Trump only thinking is 1-10. Women. Relationships. How he's treated Puerto Rico.

    Canada violated it's NAFTA agreement. Trump is in his right to challenge Trudeau.

    To challenge, yes. To attack and belittle, no.

    Surprising how hard it is to win a trade war.

    From an economic perspective Trump's petulance is costly, but any deaths that result will be lost in the statistical noise. That's not true of North Korean talks.

    It means trump is talking a whole load of ****, once again.

    The US imports a lot of diary products into Canada than reverse, as mentioned above.

    Canada’s milk is of higher quality / standard too. Also, there’s no large dumping of milk due to over production ( unlike EU and US ) and farmers get a fair price for their produce.

    $4.25 Canadian (3.28 USD)for 4 L in ontario and about $6.40 (4.94 USD) in Quebec. Butter is around $4-$6 a lbs I pay around 2$-3$ dollars a pound on sale.

    it's $3.99 for 3.9L here in Virginia. The one that galls me is butter-- $4-$5 for 450 g.

    It's also good to note that Canadian dairy does not use growth hormones as it is illegal in Canada for dairy cows.

    So after currency exchange consideration, there isn’t that much difference.

    And in 1 system every taxpayer pays a subsidy and with the other only dairy consumers pay. I think it's unfair to force Vegans to pay for milk production, IMO the Canadian system is more fair. User pays, Farmers can make a living, and better quality milk is produced.

    Where the US, EU, NZ, AU, CL and AR seem to agree is about BC wine laws.

    The world according to Supreme Leader, him against the world, the world against us. Who needs friends? :(
    I’ve said before, his tweeting is sympatmatic of his mental state, on display for the world. Putin giggles, China smirks, and our neighbors North and South, along our European “allies” are a combination of sympathetic and horrified, wondering how long will we (US Citizens) put up with this nonsense before it turns into a full blown tragedy.

    You in Toronto? Nielson is the only milk I've seen down in the 4.69 levels, most of the milk I buy is 5.30 for 4L.

    Trump doesn’t respect betas like Trudeau, that much is obvious.
