On last night's show, I discussed the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the crafting of a Canada-China trade deal.
Canada-US trade is extremely important; it keeps our factories open and millions employed.
On the other hand, Canada-China trade is mostly us buying their crap at WalMart.
China doesn't buy many Canadian exports, and their communist government uses what they do purchase to threaten our government if they don't get political concessions.
China doesn't respect physical or intellectual property rights, either, and has even threatened a BC winery owner with life in prison for alleged "smuggling." (Probably because they didn't bribe the right communist official.)
Donald Trump was elected on a promise to renegotiate trade deals so they would benefit American workers, while Trudeau has been busy making Canada less competitive.
