Italy Joins Trump in Resisting Canadian Trade

Italy Threatens to Thwart Landmark EU-Canada Free Trade Deal Italy threatens to scupper EU-Canada free trade deal

"More people now disapprove of US leadership than approve", said Jon Clifton of Gallup in January.

The poll results come after Trump and Trudeau have exchanged heated words over tariffs on steel and aluminum.

What's more, Trump is likely to pay a higher political price than Trudeau if a trade war leads to economic pain domestically.

With steel and aluminium tariffs in place, and Trump already talking about expanding tariffs to include auto imports, it hardly seems like the US president is about to turn friendly towards Canada.

On Friday, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue visited the farm of Canadian Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay in the idyllic province of Prince Edward Island (PEI), best known as the fictional home of Anne of Green Gables. According to Global News, merely 37 percent of Americans polled by Ipsos on the question of whether they approved of how President Trump was handling the tariff affair reacted positively, compared to 63 percent who said that the current administration was not doing a good job on the file.

Canada has vowed to retaliate against USA tariffs on steel and aluminum with tariffs against a range of US goods, a move supported by 79 percent of Canadians, according to the poll.

Vowing to stand with the federal Liberals, Ontario's Progressive Conservative premier-designate said he will travel widely in the United States in a bid to help bolster continuing and complex NAFTA talks.

United States officials had already made clear time was running out to secure a deal the current Congress could vote on.

Without ratification, however, the agreement's investment provisions and its investor court system won't come into force, he said.

"We want to get it right and we want to get it done quickly", he said.

International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne visited Italy a few days ago to sell the merits of CETA to the new Italian government, which took power on June 1.

Fifty-seven percent of US respondents told the poll they support Trudeau's actions, compared to just 37 percent who said the same for Trump.

Champagne also introduced legislation Thursday in Parliament in support of the controversial 11-nation, Pacific Rim trade pact, which is known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Other Canadian business leaders who remain silent may miss out on a golden opportunity to strike a deal with the government.

In April, the Brussels-based European Union executive put forward a proposed free trade agreement with Japan for fast-track approval, hoping to avoid a repeat of the public protests that almost derailed the CETA trade pact with Canada two years ago.
