I've been paying attention to the Canadian news, and although I've been hearing a lot about how it could affect specific industries, there's been little or no "so we should agree to it."
Oh, god, yah. Trudeau caving would be the end for him, and probably the Liberals as a party.
I have to say, it's not just 45. He's more the perfect embodiment of what, in the back of our minds, all American governments are: arrogant, self-serving, determined to take what they want and do as they please.
See: War of 1812, history of softwood lumber disputes, Great Lakes waters, etc.
They like our resources, but they seem to have picked up the idea that they're entitled to get them for free. Almost as though it was all theirs.
45 is just more blatant than most.
(This is governments, mind, not actual Americans. Who are, in the main, good people.)
