On his blog, Steve Paikin of The Agenda fame argues that the way the current U.S. administration is treating Canada is doing less for "national security" and more towards damaging "a 150-year tradition of friendly relations" with Canada. Because he avoids taking public positions, he's letting his wallet do the speaking.
America, you just don’t deserve our money.
And so, for the first time in many years, we will not do an American baseball road trip. We will find something else to do — somewhere else — unless you change your minds about Canada.
We will not spend hundreds of dollars on your baseball tickets. We will not spend hundreds of dollars on your restaurants and hotels. We will not spend hundreds of dollars on your gas. We will not spend hundreds of dollars at museums or at the theatre. We will not spend hundreds of dollars on souvenirs and gifts.
And the more I think about this, the more I realize I could — and perhaps should — do more.
