Canadians who think Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is standing up for Canadians against U.S. President Donald Trump over dairy tariffs have it wrong. Trudeau is standing up for Quebec against the Rest of Canada. It is Trump who is standing up for Canadians.
Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, speaks during the Outreach official welcome at the Group of Seven (G7) Leaders Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, on Saturday, June 9, 2018. U.S. President†Donald Trump†shook up a meeting of the leaders of the world’s richest countries with a proposal to eliminate all barriers to global trade, a shift from his aggressive tariff threats ahead of the summit.
