Aldo gets mistakenly caught up in Canada-U.S. trade dispute

Quebec footwear retailer Aldo found itself temporaily at the heart of the current Canadian-U.S. trade dispute after being linked to President Donald Trump.

The company was included in a Maclean's magazine list of retailers that are either owned by Trump and his family or sell Trump goods.

The objective of the list first published Sunday is to inform consumers where they can hurt Trump in the pocketbook.

Aldo then went online to state it is a private family-run company that has no connection to any Trump businesses.

Maclean's acknowledged the error and withdrew Aldo from the list, which includes Hudson's Bay and Walmart.

Aldo was founded in Montreal in 1972.
