Letter: Canadian-friendly? US has work to do
To the editor,
For as long as I can remember, several decades now, I and many friends and family members living in Winnipeg have visited Grand Forks at least once and often twice a year where we enjoyed both the shopping and the hospitality in your city. We have consistently experienced the hand of friendship which has extended across the border between our cities and our countries.
Now, for the first time ever, we are rethinking our scheduled visit in September in light of the tariffs and restrictions which have been placed by your President on Canadian products, inciting a potential trade war that threatens to sour the relationship of our countries.
We Canadians, in general, are paying much more attention to our spending habits, preferring to avoid buying U.S.-made products at the very least and reconsidering our travel plans to your beautiful country.
We urge you to do everything you can to rectify this unfortunate situation so that we can be mutually helpful and supportive and our friendship can flourish once again.
