Senators seek to soothe relationship with Canada

German Chancellor Angela Merkel center details policy to US President Donald Trump seated at right during the G7 Leaders Summit in La Malbaie Quebec Canada on Saturday

Canada's foreign affairs minister, Chrystia Freeland, continues her trip to Washington in the wake of last weekend's verbal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by U.S. President Donald Trump following the G7 meeting near Quebec City.

After President Trump's decision to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imported from the E.U., Merkel warned the E.U. would be following Canada's lead, moving forward with countermeasures against the U.S.

Morocco, which has now failed in five bids to host the World Cup, said their tournament would make $5 billion.

"From Day One, we have said that we expected moments of drama and that we would keep calm and carry on throughout those moments", Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Tuesday in Ottawa. She said the two agreed to continue NAFTA negotiations with Mexico this summer, despite a looming election in that country, but didn't set any dates.

The implications of a high auto tariff would be felt by everyone working in the auto sector and beyond, said Jerry Dias, president of Unifor, which represents Canadian auto workers.

MacLauchlan also took the opportunity to affirm his support for the supply management system in Canada's dairy industry, which has been heavily attacked by members of the Trump administration.

The statement was a declaration of shared values and goals by the seven countries - the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Italy, Germany and Japan - that attended.

One of the ways to do that would be to add the COP21 Paris Agreement to the list of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) to which parties must adhere and enforce.

His advisers went further, with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro saying there was a "special place in hell" for leaders like Trudeau who negotiate with Trump in bad faith.

Some experts say the tariff would be imposed on completed cars while others say it would be charged each time a part crosses into the U.S.

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, also criticized the tariffs stating that the U.S.'s "national security [is] strengthened by fostering free trade with our allies".

"I believe very strongly that it is important for those of us who believe in liberal democracy - and I think that includes the overwhelming majority of Canadians - for us to strike back", she said.

Across the board - whether it's a government, business or security leader visiting the US - Canadian officials have been touting the importance of the US-Canada trade relationship, reaching out beyond the administration to Congress, statehouses and legislators.

Michael Byers, a professor of worldwide politics at the University of British Columbia, said that despite the current turbulence, the US-Canada relationship "transcends any president or prime minister". "But if history tells us one thing, it is that no one nation's pre-eminence is eternal".
