I know why USA government has to help farmers financially.
Most people believe that USA farmers need financial help because of US-China trade war. Let me tell you the real reason; it is because of me. When I go to grocery store I look on the labels; I buy if it is Ontario product, then I look for Canada product… and there is no third option. Before all this non-sense trade war started by US I did not see the labels, now I do. What bothered me the most was the reason enunciated by president Trump: USA has a negative commercial balance with Canada, and he kept saying it. All news channels I looked at, both US and Canadians, bothering to ask experts, said the opposite, Canada has a negative commercial balance with USA.
I analyzed my experience: I buy on-line from US sites, I spend vacations in US, I take cruises… and none of the companies I worked for sell in USA. It is true, I did not work for companies using Canadian “natural resources”, manufacturing or farming, still, my own experience is in line with what news channels (but not president Trump) are saying.
Let’s say one day all will be back to normal. Too late, I know now about the labels.
