Steel and oil. Strength and energy. The world is built on both. They are both major Canadian industries.
President Donald Trump hints or bluffs of tariffs on steel (and then defers it) and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delays a vacation (DEFCON 1 at Sussex Drive) to do a reassurance tour of Canada’s steel cities.

First, the Conservative coalition that sustained Stephen Harper’s governments appears to be realigning.
Second, the agenda may be shifting away from social issues and toward economic management, which is good for Conservatives and bad for Liberals.
The PM can’t afford more sloppy mistakes and he may not be getting the stern warnings he needs to rein in his worst impulses.
The little things that seemed so charming at first, all those dashing gestures and glam photo ops, might well come to seem, at first frivolous, then irritating.
“Feminism means building a better future and a stronger world because when women and girls succeed, we all do,” Trudeau said. “So together, let’s make gender equality a reality.”
