Is it game over for the North American Free Trade Agreement? At least when it comes to NAFTA Classic?
Well, it kinda looks that way. After all, just check out what President Donald Trump said yesterday. Namely, that the U.S. might just hammer out a separate trade deal with Mexico and that discussions with his Mexican counterpart are going quite well.
There certainly doesn’t seem to be any urgency for Trump to get a deal done with Ottawa, though. But Trudeau says he’s still “optimistic” about a new NAFTA deal being reached.
Based on what exactly?
The fallout from an impending trade war between Canada and the U.S. won’t just mean higher consumer prices. It might just grease the wheels for an all-out recession, according to a report by Scotiabank.
And the real tragedy is it didn’t have to be this way:
If only our virtue-signalling Prime Minister could’ve kept his mouth shut, or negotiated in good faith.
Mexico and the U.S. remain engaged in cordial talks en route to a free trade deal, but it would appear that Canada is on the outside looking in...
NEXT: I'm joined by our Alberta Bureau Chief, Sheila Gunn Reid, to examine exactly how Trudeau managed to screw up NAFTA.
THEN: Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington tells me what to expect now that former Toronto chief of police Bill Blair is now the Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction.
FINALLY: Your letters!
