    I'm worried that China will impose tariffs on US Oil. USA exporting less, will mean they will import less from Canada.

    I'd hate to say it, but I hope they do. My employment is O&G dependent.

    Maybe then the rest of Canada will start to realize the importance of having access to different markets.

    Short term pain.

    Im pretty sure most of the country understands. Its only a select few who don't, and even fewer who know, but want to stomp their feet, and milk the shit out if the feds to allow it.

    Again. He is telling the truth. Canadians most definitely go to the USA wearing rags and come back looking like a million bucks. Do most people go to the USA, scuff a newly bought shoes a bit and come back? Well...

    Not that its in itself a good reason to impose trade tariffs, but hes definitely got us nailed.

    My sister lives in Nevada. I do all of my clothes/shoe shopping down there when I visit. Even at shitty exchange rates it's still cheaper, and the selection and inventory levels totally clown Canadian retail. Canadian retail sucks.

    The shoe smuggling is sorta legit. There aren't any duties on US made shoes, but there are huge duties on non NAFTA shoes, which is 99% of all shoes on the market. It's not really for the price, it's about the same for the exact same shoe in Canada vs US even at current exchange rates. It's for the selection as Canada always gets shafted on selection. There are just a billion more options in the US, especially on the cheap side, so shoes are effectively "cheaper" in the US.

    The milk smuggling is 10000% legit. Remember this thread?

    Clearly supply management works fucking great in Canada.
