What to do about Free (for me, not you) Trade

We Liberals should support the Softwood Lumber deal in the House of Commons. We know its a losing battle already. Our trading partner ignores legal rulings from the authority on NAFTA. NAFTA was developed and agreed to by both countries.

What we do for now on in is start to shift our trade to countries that play by the rules. Find new markets for all commodities currently covered under NAFTA. This includes capping the oil we export south at a level that suits us. There are emerging markets much more lucrative than the USA.

Then in 7 years when the deal expires, we tell them to kiss our Canadian asses. Recommend this Post
