U.S. Steel is the biggest hypocrite in the world and ignorant too.

I hate this company with a passion. They come into this country buy our last canadian steel company and shut it down when there was canadian orders to fulfill. Now they whine because they think the court case against them is unfair. They also have the nerve to come into our country and tell us that our laws are unconstitutional and that the judge was erred. http://www.amm.com/login/amm -*/2009-10-07__17-17-53.html/C anadian+court++erred+in+Lakesi de+Steel+decision+USS+says
You are being sued because you broke the law and agreements made with the country. I think a canadian judge would know more about our countrys laws than an outsider.

Unfair is working for the only foreign company to shutdown their canadian mills when they didn't have to.

Get these ignorant bullies out of this country.
