The Canadian government is already trying to sell the

Trans Mountain pipeline, after agreeing to buy it only a
few days ago. The government has sent out marketing
materials for the pipeline to several potential buyers with
the goal of selling by the shareholder vote on the sale at

by the vote and to potentially turn a profit.
United States hiring rose more than forecasted in May,

U.S President Donald Trump took aim at Canadian
agriculture on Twitter Friday morning. Trump tweeted,
“Canada has treated our Agricultural business and Farmers
very poorly for a very long period of time. Highly
restrictive on Trade! They must open their markets and take
down their trade barriers! They report a really high
surplus on trade with us. Do Timber & Lumber in U.S.?”
