Last week, Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidates debated about interprovincial trade which is a huge issue for Canadians, but rarely talked about until now.
The Canadian economy loses between $30 to $150 billion annually due to restrictions on the free flow of labour between provinces. It’s easier for some Canadian companies to set up shop elsewhere in order to get their goods into Canada – all due to these barriers.
It’s even easier for us to trade with other countries than it is within our own. Watch my video to see candidates Andrew Scheer, Dan Lindsay and Maxime Bernier discuss these trade barriers.
Unfortunately, many Canadians aren’t informed on the issue and that in itself is an issue. It’s absurd that skilled workers can’t just pick up and go and that we’re paying unnecessary government implemented taxes on made in Canada products.
What’s worse is that it’s illegal under the constitution.
