NAFTA negotiations should be about coming to an agreement on open trade policies with our most important ally and what’s best for Canada, but if you’re Trudeau and the Liberals, it’s an opportunity to focus on themselves and preen over pet issues.
To that end, the Liberals want chapters on gender equality and indigenous people written into the deal.
These issues are important but, how are they trade issues?
In addition to this, both the Americans and Mexicans have been completely dismissive of various suggestions for favourable policy on unions, working conditions and wages. The bottom line in all of this is that the Liberals are totally incompetent.
First, they can’t even decide what’s a trade issue and what isn’t and as a result, they’re not getting better deals for Canadians of any gender, race or creed.
And, just like three year olds, they’re calling the leader of the most powerful country in the world names when they don’t get their way.
What a bunch of lightweights!
