UAE Boots Canada

Canada and the UAE are now feuding.  UAE airlines Emirates and Etihad wanted to expand their flights in Canada, but Canada refused.  So the UAE is now requiring visas for Canadian visitors - and if you don't fly on a UAE airline, a 30-day visa is $250 (Canadian).  The UAE has also told Canada to get out of its base in Dubai.  Canada also has a lot of trade with the UAE, which could be affected.
