bummer for them...going forward might be a real bummer also if one has paid but not picked up a trailer and the next morning waking up and reading the news that someone with a pen just implemented a tariff on all imports from Canada!
..certainly praying it won't happen.....
as long as they are talking tariffs a safer strategy might be to not pay till a few days before its due (completion) and pick it up on completion or get it shipped across the border asap!
