Canada parliament condemns U.S. attack on Trudeau, country simmers

We may have lost a friend with Canada but at least we gained one with the gentle Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s House of Commons on Monday unanimously condemned the personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by U.S. President Donald Trump and his surrogates as the famously polite nation simmered over the weekend broadsides by its U.S. ally.

Lawmakers gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminum, hit by U.S. tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government’s response to the Trump administration’s verbal attacks on Trudeau.
