The war of words that erupted between Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and US President Donald Trump shows no sign of abating as the hashtag #BuyCanadian that started trending on social media soon after the spat between the two at the G7 laid bare their differences.

After Mr. Trudeau’s closing news conference at the G7 summit in Quebec mentioned that Canada would “not be pushed around” on trade, Mr Trump responded with an angry tweet, calling Trudeau “dishonest” and “weak,” and claiming that those remarks would cost “a lot of money for the people of Canada.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">American strawberries were $3.99 and the Canadian ones were $5.99. I did not hesitate to buy the Canadian ones despite the price. And, I got a nice bottle of South African red Merlot for $13.00.

However, Mr. Trump’s remarks seem to have hit a nerve with Canadians all over as soon after the hashtag #BuyCanadian started appearing with people proudly showing their ‘Trump Free’ cart in grocery stores or stating happily that they had canceled their planned summer vacations to Florida.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Fellow Canadians, please check all products origin and don&#39;t buy US. See Canada on your summer vacation and for winter sun go to the Caribbean. Cuba is great, beautiful country and people. Show Trump we can&#39;t be bullied.</p>&mdash; Canada hates Trump (@Nortonvt) <a href="https://twitter.com/Nortonvt/status/1007430839855144961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 15, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Trudeau acknowledged the movement during a session with farmers this week, stating: "There's a bit of a patriotic boost going on these past few days."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Just cancelled all plans to go to California, will be discovering our own beautiful east coast by road this fall!! :) <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BoycottUSA?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#BoycottUSA</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BuyCanadian?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#BuyCanadian</a></p>&mdash; Hamad E (@Realistology) <a href="https://twitter.com/Realistology/status/1006937755039854592?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 13, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Trudeau continued: "There's going to be ups and downs in negotiations as there always are, moments of a little more intensity and moments where we’re all getting along, but throughout one of the things that has helped us so much is that Canadians have stuck together across party lines, across provincial capitals… there is a common approach.”

Of course, given that Canada imports the majority of its products from the US, there is only so many local boycotts can do. In the first four months of 2018, Canada imported a

total of US$98.9 billion in goods from the US.

Waa waa the poor Canadians cannot accept a fair playfield and resort to this crap.

Lets see, what do I buy that the Canadians produce that I can boycott?? Hrmmm nothing. LOL!

Someday the canuks will probably be the largest producer of qurans and berkas. More shit I want nothing to do with. Good luck Canada! Your best export is maple syrup and we also make that here in the US also in my own woods.

I thought Canadians were fair people? Why are they mad at us for not wanting to be ripped off anymore? If it were the other way around i guaranteed they would want it changed immediately. Lets be fair people!

As A canadian i find the support of Trudeau's Juvenile behavior and actions to be in keeping with the social liberalism of a group of people, not ALL the people of Canada, a great many of us, understand the situation and agree that a separate negotiated deal between the US and Canada , out side of NAFTA is needed. We have out own swamp that both Trump and Trudeau brought out into the light of day… We are working on fixing it, we simply don't work at the same speed.
