They should kick USA out and put worldwide sanctions.

I think that's a good idea, it falls right in line what the US wants (paragraph 8) and the US will still drop the hammer on the WTO.  Cheers :)

It remains to be seen whether these countries have the will and the wisdom to stand up to the bully.

Countries like Japan have a PM that actually still think subservience and yielding to the American master is the way to go. It cannot be a coincidence that elsewhere on the site there is an article about the rise of bullying in Japan. If the government is any example the message it is sending is that bullies are rewarded with obedience, cash and even more sucking up!

As for Canada, not much of a small country being part of the G7 and having the second largest land mass in the world behind Russia.

The Canadians did not expect their neighbour country will stab their back so deep and in such a cold blood!

Lol, no US or China, sounds like the WTO is finally on it's way out. Good. The thing is free trade doesn't really require a lot of "rules". Just generally don't be a fraud is, about . As trump said America is first but he would be fair to other nations, because other nations leaders should be putting their respective country first as well. The, WTO wants to put the, WTO and every other political class globalist bureaucrat elite first and scrrw the US, China and everyone else. These trade agreements and the WTO set up rules that puts the politicians in charge of trade so they can soak up Money for themselves from trade, obtain power over everyone by controlling trade. Niti, e in all trade agreements, the Individual human is always blocked from trading his time, ideas or products. I can't trade my labor because I'm blocked. That is contol of population. The WTO needs to end

Hard to take anything Canada does seriously, sorry no one cares. Without US and China, it is pointless to begin with.

Speak for yourself. Canada has consistently shown itself to be the adult in the room.

And as far as no one caring what Canada does, you must have missed how the whole world cares about them legalizing cannabis a couple weeks back.

Nice victim mentality. Bully fan anyone.

Ironically, you commented and 20 countries showed up in Canada to tackle the matter.

I repeat that I hope these countries tackle Trump and his goons for the good of the world.
