Conservative Shadow Minister for Jobs Pierre Poilievre picked apart the Trudeau Liberals’ excuses on dealing with the US. “Trump is no longer president,” Poilievre said, “But the Americans are still using Trudeau as a doormat. Our workers will pay for his weakness.”
While addressing Minister of Natural Resources Seamus O’Regan during the May 10 Question Period, Poilievre listed a number of failures on the Trudeau government’s part. This time, specifically on Line 5, a pipeline that is at risk of being shutdown by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

“It is no surprise that the minister and the Prime Minister cannot get the governor on the phone themselves, because, of course, they have done nothing but fail in Canada-US relations for the last five years,” he said.
“They failed to get a buy America exemption, as Harper did under Obama. They failed to resolve the softwood lumber dispute, as Harper did under George W. Bush. They have had three presidents to work with, and yet no concessions whatsoever,” Poilievre continued.
