The day also included a revolving door of local politicians and high-ranking community members offering their support of the move including Mayor Don Scott, MLA Tany Yao, several councillors and the president of the local Chamber of Commerce.
Even Premier Notley to call into The Big Breakfast with Brad Karp and offer her support of the decision and talk about what’s next in the budding trade war.
