Canadians are unhappy. 

President Trump's tariffs on Canadian-made steel and aluminum exported to the US has fired up many Canadian leaders and consumers.

On Sunday, Canada slapped tariffs on $12.63 billion dollars worth of American-made goods in retaliation.  There's been a growing movement among Canadian consumers to boycott US-made products and services. Hashtags like #IShopCanada, #BuyCanadian, and #BoycottUSA are taking off across social media in Canada. 

 Beth Mouratidis lives in Barrie, Ontario. She's using her Facebook page to urge her fellow Canadians to shun U.S.-made products and Buy Canadian. Listen above to learn why there is such a strong pushback against Trump's tariffs in Canada, and why Beth believes that trade wars cost jobs and "hurt everyone" involved in them.  (Subscribe to the Stateside podcast on iTunesGoogle Play, or with this RSS link)
