Trade Tensions With Canada Rise Ahead of G-7

With the leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized democracies due in Quebec, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned the United States leader that they would not roll over on trade tariffs.

These summits are usually seen as a cheerful and informal demonstration of shared goal and responsibility among the world's richest economies.

Cherry, who runs the Aluminium Valley Society, also said that because 80 per cent of Canadian aluminum is shipped to the US the tariffs don't make any sense for anyone.

"Because these 6 countries represent values, they represent an economic market which has the weight of history behind it and which is now a true worldwide force".

Canada's non-American G7 partners don't envy Trudeau, and some are downright sympathetic.

Despite the G7's efforts to coax the Trump administration away from a go-it-alone approach, some analysts now question whether Washington remains committed to basic policies that have upheld the post-World War Two global economic system.

"We are allies. Our soldiers stand shoulder to shoulder to defend liberty and our values", Macron said.

"Don't blame Mr Trump, blame the nations that have broken away. I think the president's made that very clear". "That's the key point".

"Until we can have reciprocal relationships, we will not have free trade, and we will not have fair trade", Kudlow said.
