Canada Trade’s Twitter account has been throwing some shade at the US, following Monday’s White House decision impose a 20% tax on Canadian softwood lumber.

Canada Trade started off its sassy series of tweets by sticking it to the US with some facts.

Canada Trade also didn’t waste any time to mention that Asia is growing market for Canadian softwood lumber.

They also dropped a line about how Canada is a top exporter to China.

And they noted Canada’s efforts to “diversify” its softwood lumber exports to other countries.

Seems like whoever is running Canada Trade’s Twitter account isn’t afraid to tell the US that we’ll be taking our business elsewhere.
