Trump and Mexico exclude Trudeau from government procurement projects in USMCA

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, consultant and lawyer Manny Montenegrino joined me to discuss the ongoing US-Canada Trade War.

Earlier this week I reported on Trump issuing an Executive Order strengthening Buy American provisions for infrastructure projects funded by the US government.

Trump's order will make it even more difficult for Canadian steel and aluminum producers export their products to America, and will prevent Canadians from bidding on multi-billion dollar pipeline construction projects.

Manny read through the USMCA and discovered that Mexico is exempt from Buy American provisions for US government infrastructure projects, but NOT Canada!

Why would Trudeau sign a deal that grants Mexico special benefits that Canada doesn't receive?

Liza I believe everything Harper warned us about the Liberals and the budget balancing it self was right on the money . Put the blame on the voters also the MSM hanging a conservative over expenses . Of coarse Duffy never got charged , Funny how the Liberal senator that was accused of more expenses just disappeared after the Liberals got in .

Starting with aga kahn, then India and on and on, and now Lavalin and the 28 suers of the lib. govt…No one can pile shit that high except for one person—Trudeau—the shit sky-pilot. How high can you fly. You’ll never, never, ever reach the sky. Hint: shit sinks to the bottom and butts is there waiting for you, you shit-ass.

Can’t blame them for not wanting to deal with children like Justin and Freelunch.

Mark, I don’t trust any of these multi lateral deals anymore. They are all just a vehicle for ushering in global governance.
Thanks for nothing Harper. He was better, but still he sent us to the wolves.

I guess the Sharia police comment is in the wrong thread, my bad.

Ron Shea, yes that was a stellar performance by Thompson in the debate for Burnaby South. The Liberal wanted the UN to monitor fake news, the conservative couldn’t pick a lane, and by his answers I could never tell if Jagmeet even heard the questions. After all his ears are always covered. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Laura Lynn. The crowd seemed receptive. The liberal was booed when he mentioned the UN.

If, or I should say when, sharia police show up in Canada, Canadians have to do the same by starting up our own neighbourhood police force. The RCMP and local police will have to put pressure to eliminate all alternative faux cops. However they are hiring so many Muslims that it will probably be sanctioned under the RCMP banner anyway How absurd. Oh Canada. Islam is a slippery snake.

Don’t forget what Trudeau and Freeland were really working on instead of the trade deal . I believe the UN migration pact .

Ron…. Great vid Laura Lynn knew her facts she was very articulate and wow how refreshing to hear a common sense person. This lady mopped the floor with the other candidates!! Go PPC!!!

Liza…. I want my damn country back too and I want it to be rat refugee free and I want the clamps to be put hard on Islam. I want pipelines and drilling rigs and I want black gold to flow!! B

Justin got his just desserts. He asked for it. Hell, maybe he even did it on purpose, since he would rather court anyone but our closest, biggest and most important markets to the south.
I want my damn country back.

Justin made Canada’s bed and now we all have to lie in it.
I don’t know who’s league Justin is in, but it sure as hell isn’t Trump’s.
I am rather in awe of Trump.
I wish Canada had half the smarts.

The Canadian Fake Stream delusional Media just luv Justin . . . Canada’s abject failure!

Clueless Freeland & the gang dropped the ball big-time on trade!
commented 2019-02-07 14:48:21 -0500
Good job Trudy you are a real tool, Canada would have been better off sending a rock to talk trade with the Americans than that doofus Freeland,my God what a mess and a disgrace!!
commented 2019-02-07 14:23:32 -0500
If true about Mexico being “preferred” to Canada for trade favorites, this is explosive. The SNC-Lavalin scandal may overshadow this, but Freeland/Trudeau’s incompetence must be confirmed and loudly broadcast to the public.
