    Citing the need to protect “Canadian middle-class jobs and safeguard our economy,” Trudeau on Monday rolled out the expansion of the Large Employer Emergency Financing Facility (LEEFF), intended to provide bridge liquidity to companies unable to meet their payroll due to the shutdown. There is, of course, a catch. Among the standard safeguards listed in the government announcement – limits on stock buybacks, verification of a company’s tax status, protections for unions and pensions, among other things – there was this as well: “In addition, recipient companies would be required to commit to publish annual climate-related disclosure reports… including how their future operations will support environmental sustainability and national climate goals.”

    I would prepare the company's global warming report by highlighting a plan to reduce CO2 emissions from stupid politicians, chief among them PM Blackface.

    Time to write off my losses and shut down the company. Trudeau can go figure out how to employ the people that I have to let go.... If I was running a company in Canada of course.

    In addition to bringing manufacturing back from China, maybe Trump should be offering Canadian companies incentives to relocate their operations to America.

    "My eyebrows are as legitimate as my unyielding belief in Global warming or climate change or the temperature has changed by 0.2 degrees C over the past 12 years. Oh, and to show my resolve in battling climate warming/cooling/same/hot/cold, I will be buying an oceanfront mansion just to show the climate who's boss."
