THE BOSTON GLOBE

Vacationing tourists strolled along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean near The Pier in Old Orchard, Beach, Maine, late last month. Canadians may be angry about President Donald Trump's insults and tariffs, but it doesn't seem to be taking a toll on tourism.

C’est la vie: Canadians still visiting US despite trade flap

The United States and Canada are engaged in a trade dispute, but it doesn’t yet seem to be hurting tourism. In Old Orchard Beach, Maine, innkeepers say Canadian tourism remains strong, despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau vowing last month that Canada ‘‘won’t be pushed around’’ and President Trump calling the prime minister ‘‘weak’’ and ‘‘dishonest.’’ Weeks later, Canada imposed billions of dollars in tariffs to retaliate against Trump’s duties on Canadian steel and aluminum. Canada accounts for the largest number of international visitors to the United States, with more than 20 million visitors pumping nearly $20 billion into the US economy, according to the Department of Commerce. Canada’s border-crossing data indicate the number of Canadian motorists returning from the United States in June grew 12.7 percent from last year. Travel to the United States is growing, despite anecdotal evidence to the contrary, said Allison Wallace, of Flight Centre Canada, a travel agency. ‘‘All of that being said, we’ve not seen a trade war like this, so that may change,’’ she said. ‘‘But as of now, the US remains a very popular destination.’’ — ASSOCIATED PRESS
