This is politics, he said he’d do something, this is something and now he can throw some red meat to his base. Ljh August 28, 2018 at 9:40 am I beg to differ: “In order for Canada to join the U.S. Mexico deal they would need to: (1) eliminate soft-wood subsidies in the lumber sector; (2) eliminate protectionist tariffs in the AG (Dairy) sector; (3) accept the 75% rules of origin, eliminating the NAFTA loophole; (4) agree to the enforcement mechanisms for all the above; (5) allow U.S. banks to operate in Canada (financial sector). Each of these five issues, now locked-in and agreed by the U.S. and Mexico are “take-it-or-leave-it” terms for Canada to join. There’s almost no-way, given the politicization of the Canadian plan, for Justin and Chrystia to agree to those terms and keep their fragmented political support base appeased.“ From https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/08/27/justin-from-canada-painted-his-country-into-a-lose-lose-trade-corner-more-details-of-u-s-mexico-deal/ jgh August 28, 2018 at 12:02 pm Mexico is Central America, so why it’s part of a North American Anything is beyond me. john 77 August 28, 2018 at 9:08 pm @ jgh If you have just two Americas – North and South – the Mexico is in North America Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
