Elites “handwringing” over Brexit while blocking free trade WITHIN Canada

Brian LilleyArchive

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.

Brian, you nailed it. Everything governments do is about control to push their agendas du jour. Especially lefties. The liberals were aghast in regard to the TPP How dare the Conservatives rope us into an agreement that leaves us with no say on our own affairs!. But when the Brits want to exit the EU the left is aghast once again. How dare those ingrates refuse the tender mercies of the beneficent EU! Seems a little inconsistent but consistency is never what it s about. Control is the overarching theme that spans all. Apply lies and deceitt as necessary. Rinse and repeat until desired effect is achieved.

In dealing with the Liberals and their ilk it is crucial to realize they are globalists and despise what Canada has always been about. Next you must examine their narrative for the “red herring” that they are wafting about to throw people off the real scent.

Next you must examine the words and apple pie buzz phrases. Those are the intentionally deceitful words that they use that sound like the words you use but mean something entirely different. They are apple pie because they have a familiar ring to them that resonates with people who have grown up in a society that was built on the Reformation. Kinda like the muslims saying they desire to have peace on earth without telling you that peace for them means everyone is a muslim whether they want to be or not.

The Elites “handwringing” over Brexit is not about “Free Trade”. It is all about how the public no longer listens to the media propaganda. The public has started to think for themselves and are rejecting the Party Line. The “elites” do not like that once again people are refusing taxation without representation.

The 2 questions our gormless press won’t ask our home-grown anti-Brexit phonies:

1. Would you be in favour of Canada entering a similar economic/political union with the US?

2. If Canada was in a similar economic/political union with the US, would you be advocating that it withdraw, or remain?

According to the mentality of the Liberal — and the liberal — the TRUE Canada dates from Pierre Trudeau and continues gloriously through his divine son Justin.

The late 20th and 21st century definition of “free Trade” as held by the political insiders who cobble such agreements together, in essence means “specifically controlled trade” which benefits the parties which could afford to buy either protection or access to the target markets with political patronage.

Globally your $$$ contribution status to the UN and its WBG/IMF financial organs buys you a place behind closed door negotiations dictating trade treaty terms.

In Canada free trade between provinces has hit a double layer of insider political influence with both federal and provincial trade boards being organs of an established corporate crony oligarchy – historically eastern marketing cabals have sought and gained price protection and protected market access/monopolies with both federal and provincial trade restrictions against western agriculture and commodity industries.The Crow rate was a vestige of this established one way trade restriction.
Food commodity marketing boards in Ontario are a good example of restricted trade access – and the recent domestic craft beer import levies in Alberta are another. Domestically our restricted trade system has created regional monopolies and oligopolies – anything but “free” trade and the consumer-taxpayer gets stuck with the bill for protected market trade policies.

And free-trade in Canada won’t be fixed with CUCK Trudeau running things – he’s just too fucking stupid to understand how to fix it.
