The motion in parliament, introduced by the opposition New Democrats, rejected "disparaging ad hominem statements by U.S. officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations."

The purely symbolic vote of solidarity came a day after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said: "There is a special place in hell" for Trudeau for his "bad faith diplomacy" with Trump, as a dispute over trade escalated.

Trudeau's itinerary was marked "personal" and he was not in the House of Commons. The prime minister has kept a low profile since Trump called him "very dishonest and weak" and withdrew support for a Group of Seven communique reached at the summit Trudeau hosted in Quebec on Saturday.

Trump and his deputies took issue with Trudeau for telling a news conference at the end of the G7 conference that Canada would not be pushed around on tariffs - a point he had made several times before.

The prime minister's silence on Monday came in sharp contrast to a roar of disapproval among Canadian politicians, who banded together across party lines to denounce Trump's attack and praise the bilateral and trading relationship between the two neighbors.

While the agreement of legislators who are normally opposed on most fronts was remarkable, the anger also spread to pundits, officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens as Canadians vowed consumer boycotts of American goods and brainstormed insults of Trump on social media.
