    Canada better get a handle on things.

    Here's another bad situation.

    Canada’s economy practically grinds to a halt — and nobody saw it coming

    Data reveals much bleaker picture than anyone anticipated with weakness extending well beyond the energy sector

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Yup; that must be the reason why Canada's economy is flat-lining ... (grin)

    "Canada’s economy practically came to a halt in the final three months of 2018, in a much deeper-than-expected slowdown that brings the underlying strength of the expansion into doubt.

    The country’s economy grew by just 0.1 per cent in the fourth quarter, for an annualized pace of 0.4 per cent, Statistics Canada said Friday from Ottawa. That’s the worst quarterly performance in two and a half years, down from annualized 2 per cent in the third quarter and well below economist expectations for a 1 per cent annualized increase.

    ... business investment dropped sharply for a second straight quarter ...

    And now to the US:

    "Consumer spending continued to grow solidly and, most encouragingly, business investment growth recovered sharply after a dip in the third quarter. Despite big external headwinds and financial market volatility in the fourth quarter, U.S. firms are not retrenching sharply on capex.”


    US and Mexico had agreed on their new "deal" by late summer, while Canada left the negotiations' table ... and had to come back in late September ... ha ha ha
    and the result of that fabulous "rape":

    Canada - 4th quarter business investment dropped
    USA - 4th quarter business investment recovered sharply

    ...Given that we're probably going to be paying tens of millions more at least for medications as a result I'm not so sure of that ( Will USMCA affect Canada'''s drug prices? Depends on what happens next, experts say | CBC News | The USMCA explained: Winners and losers, what's in and what's out - Macleans.ca ) . The renegotiated trade agreement was basically NAFTA but worse for Canada overall, and did not resolve the steel and aluminium tariffs.

    Not a Trump fan by any means, but let's not resort to disingenuity to puff up Trudeau when he's caught with his pants down.

    Tell you this though- I've always voted Liberal when I voted but the only way I'd vote in this next one is if I lived in Vancouver-Granville. I heard a guy on a CBC call-in show say he wouldn't be voting for the Liberal incumbent in his riding but he is going to volunteer in Wilson-Raboult's (sp?) campaign.
    I wouldn't mind atall atall if we got another woman PM, one named Jody W-R.
    Voted Reform in 88. Chretien later thru his terms. Both were focused on the fiscal ffn mess we were in.
    Tons of pain were inflicted
    As an ex Soldier, I knew our budgets would be slashed.
    Hoped things would change when the economics were in balance. Well economically it happened, budget and leadership wise, Cons/Libs/NDP/Bloc all walked the line in screwing the Military

    After all we are known for stepping up, ones that can be there, but we always begin with a tattered Military.
    Past wars are not what we should prepare for.

    Now on topic- we are face with Scheer, the Dairy Guy, NDP Singh, damn lucky he won his seat or he was gone, will not last long after the next General, and Trudeau.

    Well he is what some people say.
    IMHO Trudeau has been a major & massive disappointment. He has no inner Chretien.

    Yeahright. Who told you that? You don't even know how Trump is viewed in the US, never mind Canada. Trudeau is viewed here as neatly handling the idiot you guys stood up in front of him. It might be the only positive thing most Canadians have left to say about him. At least he made Trump look like the nothingburger he is.

    Anyone else think Pedro Pascal should play him in the movie?
    NRAMAGASHFT: When I "dismiss" you it only means that I can no longer carry water for the president and you have defeated me with reason and logic. My blithe attempts at personal attacks and undermining forum civility guidelines have also failed and my only recourse is to tuck tail and run.

    Lol. Trudeau - handling Trump? Canada got nothing in the deal - you saw his face on tv?

    Furthermore....

    Why are we in the middle of a dispute between China and USA?
    Why is China hurting us - and yet, at the same time China continues trade talks with USA?
    Who do you think is getting "handled?"


    I don't see any other nations "robustly" speaking in defense of Canada against China! Not even buddy France or Germany! Trudeau had to beg for support!

    Lol.....I'm inclined to imagine that China and USA deliberately want to teach the sanctimonious
    young Trudeau a lesson!


    Trudeau is viewed by Canadians - majority are anti-Trump - as someone who "stood" up against Trump, only because they see what they want to see!

    Truth is....our woes started with his......big mouth.
