Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. In this case, I would say it mostly comes from the ultra-liberal Toronto Star, but this was also posted on Conservative leader Andrew Scheer’s FB page.
This is exactly why Maxime Bernier left the Conservatives to form his own party, calling them out as corrupt beyond salvation.
The Quebec dairy, poultry, and egg farmers are largely behind this. They represent 90,000 farmers (about 10%) that enjoy protected markets (ak. supply managment), meaning Canadians pay more than twice the fair price for their products, while imposing a 275% tariff on US imports.
Trump has been asking to have the tariffs removed, and is offering to end government subsidies of US farmers, in return. In other words, a level playing field and free markets. This could open up the entire US market to Quebec’s fancy cheeses, but they don’t want it, and are able to influence the Canadian media to print garbage like this.
US President Trump’s showdown at the G7 has been immortalized.
