With all the handwringing by the elite in this country over the UK deciding to “Brexit” the European Union, you would think that everyone was all about free trade these days.
Recently, the Three Amigos met to much fanfare to discuss NAFTA yet, we still don’t have free trade within our own country.
Watch as I lay out some examples of inter-provincial protectionism that we wouldn’t even tolerate with our international trading partners.
These issues were settled 149 years ago when our country was founded:
Section 121 of the Constitution made it clear that the fathers of confederation wanted to see the free flow of goods between provinces.
It’s time to get back to the promise of 1867.
