However, the G7 summit was overshadowed by U.S. president Donald Trump's trade policy to impose tariffs on metals to EU, Canada and Mexico together with the fact that he left before the official climate talks begin showing his distinct stance to drop off the Paris agreement.

President Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro expressed regret Tuesday for having said there is "a special place in hell" for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He also justified the newly imposed tariffs on Mexico, Canada and the European Union citing national security concerns, which their oldest ally has evidently found to be "insulting".

Even a boilerplate communiqué, which reiterated the rich nations' commitment to free and fair trade, was undermined at the last minute, when American president Donald Trump repudiated the agreement. 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.

The United States is Canada's single biggest trade partner, with two-way exchanges of goods and services totalling $673.9 billion in 2017, and Washington enjoys a $8.4 billion surplus. Trump tweeted on Saturday.

Trump, as well as some of his aides, went on the attack this past weekend against the Prime Minister, throwing heavy insults at him after he refused to submit to the President's contentious tariff demands - mainly on steel and aluminum.

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.
