    So are us Yank's looking to hunt waterfowl going to be welcome in the prairie farmlands this year? If this keeps escalating, me thinks not.

    I base that on my experience a few years back when the "mad cow" scare was a great excuse to ban Canada's beef exports to the U.S. for the benefit of American producers. And that time it didn't include ridiculous insult of claiming a "national security threat" of importing metals from a neighboring country whose men died on the beachheads of Normandy and everywhere else we needed them to fight with us for our shared freedom.

    I'm sure I'll get flamed by the "shout him down" crowd, but the behavior of this President was inexcusable. The doubling down on it by his appointed staff is shameful.

    The poor treatment of our allies is inexcusable and frankly embarassing.
    Trade negotiations are one thing, ruthless and unfounded personal attacks do not reflect the history of our leadership and are unpresidential.

    Winston Churchill aptly described Trump's style of diplomacy as,

    “a bull who carries his own china shop around with him.”

    I don't believe it will matter one bit.
    If your getting turned away I would suspect other reasons but be sure to ask so you can report back.

    Glad to see you found away to make a political statement here to :doh Go play with the big boys in the PAF, there is plenty of opinions there.

    It won't matter, the majority of Farmers are on the Right and can't stand the Libs (atleast the ones I've met and had Political discussions with). I've been on a text string with a few Canadian buddies and they said the same thing, they all think that Far Left Lib running the country is a disgrace.

    Funny, I had coffee with one of our farmers today, and we talked a little politics, and he really didn't seem to care one way or another. I don't like our socialist liberals either, but they are trying to protect our country from unfair tariffs (I really don't think we are a threat to the US ), and if it is tit for tat, then so be it. Just remember that it is the consumer who will be paying for all this sabre rattling and chest thumping.

    I am one of those "farmers on the right who can't stand the libs" and I certainly won't be polling American hunters on their political leanings before deciding if they can hunt or not,,,,

    However whether you agree with Trump politics or not, he is the epitome of the stereo typical Ugly American ,,,, Brash, loud, self centered and a bully.

    And FWIW, I am pretty sure that for the most part hunters who try to use Trump tactics to gain access to fields are probably going to find it difficult to get permission!!!

    Guy,
    I really could care less how he acts, I'm more concerned about results. Whats funny is when we are in Canada hunting and get into politics most of the Canadians talk of Trudeau just like most of us used to talk about Obama

    Hope the farming is going well for you!!!
