After Trump trade spat, UK's May warns against unilateral action

That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. "That is why it was right that we had such an open and direct discussion at this summit".

G7 allies criticised Trump's decision to reject a joint communique, the BBC reported on Monday.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hold a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

During a news conference, Trudeau had reasserted his opposition to U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium, and vowed to press ahead with retaliatory moves on July 1.

In a statement to MPs on the summit, Mrs May praised Mr Trudeau's "skilful" handling of proceedings and said the leaders had established "common ground" on a range of matters.

MacLauchlan said he supported the Prime Minister's retaliatory tariffs in response to US tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum and called on opposition parties to join him in expressing support for the federal government. "We would hope that the USA would similarly honour the commitments that they have made". Not all European Union members are North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members. However, she suggested the government should look at means of increasing trade and co-operation with other Atlantic Canadian provinces, in light of the looming trade spat with the U.S.

"Change is coming!" he warned.

But Trudeau's Office said in a statement that the Canadian prime minister has been consistent with Trump both in public and private conversations.
