Pretty much the same stuff the US makes, dumbass.
Exports to Russia include, industrial machinery, agricultural equipment, mining equipment(minerals and oil), meat, fish and other seafoods, lumber for housing, aggregate for making cement, cars and trucks, optical and medical equipment, electrical machinery and plastics.
Basically, we export around $1 billion of goods every year to Russia and import about $1.5 billion. To put that $2.5 billion annual trade into some perspective, that's only about 2.5 - 3 days worth of trade between Canada and the US.

Good for Russia, who needs cheaply made Canadian goods, all their food is filled with chemicals, bugs and poisons anyway?
Canada is acting like a big crybaby. Anything to show ant-Russian sentiments. How ludicrous is that?
