Trudeau's Liberals are doing their best to torpedo NAFTA negotiations with the United States, this time by demanding they axe “Right to Work” legislation.
“Right to work” legislation — the ability to work in a workplace without being forced to join its union — is the law in 28 of 50 states.
These laws make union membership a choice based on free will, yet the Liberals in Canada think they have the authority to override those voters.
Trudeau is asking for a violation of the 10th Amendment, the ability of states to make their laws on matters that are not federal.
It’s an impossible, idiotic and embarrassing suggestion.
The Liberals are trying to protect Ontario from competition. Most US auto manufacturing occurs in “right to work” states.
But instead of trying to make Ontario more competitive, the Liberals are trying to make every place just as awful.
