Justin Trudeau is riding high on talk of a trade war with the United States.

But Daniel Tencer, Senior Business Editor for HuffPost Canada, has discovered the truth about trade relations with the United States.

The world needs us more than we need them.

We have to ask ourselves, just how much wealth are we willing to risk fighting Trump? And how much choice do we actually have?

Reminds of the old joke.  That will be a thousand dollars Canadian, or 10 American dollars if you prefer.

I just want reasonable, fair trade deals. If we're losing a little here and a little there then we're eventually scrood. And our trading partners will be eventually scrood for being able to maintain their otherwise unworkable economic systems until they no longer can.

California, America's leading Farm state with a bigger economy than Canada derives 2% from trade with Canada.

Ontario province derives 49% from trade with America.

Who needs who?

No offense to my BC Canadian cousin, who forever lives in resentment of America. (My other Canadian cousins are okay Alberta, Yukon, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick)

Trump could start with a Military Defense surcharge.  Canucks spend less than 1% of GDP on defense, versus ours north of 3 1/2%.

We are the Canadians worst nightmare. We are citizens with a constitutional right to bear arms!
