Apparently, this tiff — manifest through various trade tariffs — with our American cousins is simply a family squabble. So what about family squabbles? Are they really something to ignore or should we be concerned? In Canada 38% of marriages end in divorce (numbers appear similar in the US). That seems pretty high. Where these unresolved family squabbles?
Stats Canada reports that 35% of solved murders are by family members and the FBI reports 24.8 percent for the US. Sounds like Canadians have lesser tolerance than our US family. The same FBI report notes that 42.9 percent of victims were murdered during arguments. Sounds like these might have been family squabbles.
I’m not sure that we should be so dismissive of family squabbles.
