Buy Canadian

Post  Speed on Wed Aug 01, 2018 10:18 am

Well, since Mr. Trump declared economic war against Canada, I've ceased buying any product or services made in the U.S.A.

All my groceries are now local or made in Canada. I'm not ordering anything through Amazon while these tariffs are in place and all future big ticket items like cars, appliances etc will be Canadian or European. I'm avoiding all products targetted on the Canadian Government list of U.S. products now fixed with counter-tariffs and I'll boycott U.S. movies, music and sports. Who needs it.

I'm not overtly political, and frankly I hate politics, but I didn't serve 36 years in the Canadian Army alongside my American and European allies to now be called a security threat and be slapped with punitive measures that will create economic havoc in this country, and just sit down and take the beating.

Now I admit I did go to Watkins Glen recently, but I bought those tickets before any of this started. And just to prove I'm a good loyal Canadian, I brought all my empty beer cans back home!!! Now that's patriotic!

Hey Alpine,

Most of that money is likely going to UPS to pay the outrageous brokerage fees they charge. If I order from the US I have it shipped USPS if possible.

Yeah UPS is verboten here where I work. It's widely referred to as 'Use Purolator Stupid'.
