Canada is “generally a good neighbor?”


The Hill reports that a top U.S. official offered what you’d call a back-handed compliment to Canada today.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross defended the tariff decision during the White House’s press briefing on Tuesday.

“They are a close ally, they are an important ally, generally a good neighbor,” Ross said.” That doesn’t mean they don’t have to play by the rules,” he said.

“Things like this I don’t regard as being a good neighbor, dumping lumber. And there’s a feeling in the dairy industry that they are a little bit abrupt in the action they took the week before.”
