From a thread on 4chan:

So ...

Canada will put tariffs on their largest trading partner who manufacture 10 times as many things as they do.

How does this hurt Americans? If Canadians buy less American made goods, it decreases the demand and increases the supply.

Increased supply means lower prices for Americans. Sure, it might mean a shift or two runs idle, but it will actually really help the average American. Meanwhile, the average Canadian can look forward to paying between 10-25% more for untold items, and that money goes straight into the coffers of their government who will undoubtedly use it to promote feminism, illegal immigration, and any other leftist cause you can think of. The few Canadian producers that directly compete with American products on store shelves will certainly increase their prices to match (almost) what the increased price of American goods are, because why wouldn't they? Less competition for their products means they can charge more. Fuck I hate my country.
