Politicians all across the country are lining up to support Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in his self-induced trade war with the Americans.
All of a sudden, even the NDP claim to be free marketeers with a disdain for Trump’s retaliatory tariffs on steel and aluminum.
But what about the NDP’s own tariffs and protectionist measures here at home in Alberta?
The NDP are so in love with protectionism and tariffs that they keep dragging a small Alberta business before a trade tribunal in an attempt to keep a protectionist unconstitutional beer tax in place, even though they keep losing.
This is a wild story of bad socialist ideas, unintended consequences from unwarranted meddling and how the NDP tried to make the process of fighting back against them a punishment.
Joining me tonight to discuss their latest David and Goliath victory against the NDP and the damage that poorly thought out protectionist policies can have on small businesses, is Bo Vitanov of Calgary’s Artisan Ales.
