VIDEO: Is The Trudeau Government Screwing Up NAFTA Negotiations?

As NAFTA negotiations continue, there is growing concern that the Trudeau government is putting political virtue-signalling ahead of Canada’s economic interests.

With a massive amount of jobs at stake, Canada must be tough and relentless in standing up for our national interest. Dozens of U.S. states rely heavily upon trade with Canada, giving us important leverage.

However, that leverage is only meaningful if it is used effectively, and that means focusing on protecting core industries and jobs here in Canada.

Unfortunately, the Trudeau government has been spending a lot of time pushing for things (such as a carbon tax), that all trade negotiators have said the U.S. will never agree to.

The Trudeau government is doing this to score political points, but the consequence could be a worse outcome for Canada in NAFTA negotiations.

Watch as Conservative Foreign Affairs Critic Erin O’Toole details some of those concerns:

While Canada would probably be better off without Mexico in NAFTA (that’s a discussion for another article), all Canadians want our country to benefit from the renegotiated NAFTA deal, and we want the government to do well on our behalf. That’s why the Trudeau government should start acting in the interests of our country, rather than trying to score political points. The stakes are far too high for political games.

This, along with all the other ‘spoiled child’ antics of this government is the new standard of Canadian politics and, although pleasing to the immature mindset of the Liberals, is detrimental to Canad’s interests. There can no longer be any doubt in anyone’s mind about the immature nature of the whole of the Liberal Party of Canada whose antics continually display the reality that they have no idea in the world that their first duty is to protect the interests of Canada.

Of course the Liberals are screwing up the negotiations. Is anybody really surprised? Yet Justin still enjoys substantial support in the polls. Maybe when there are no more jobs left in the country the imbeciles who continue to support him might start to understand; no more money for inflated civil service salaries, no more money for welfare, no more money for Justin’s vacations then our snowflakes will be forced to deal with reality. I believe that situation is called a Depression. Better read up on it and get prepared.

Actually the Conservatives are now ahead of the Liberals in the polls. 39% for Conservatives and I think 25% for Liberals. Definitely we dont need game playing by Trudeau, specially not the advancement of his personal agenda. He is working for Canadians people and should be reminded of that. If he wants to work for himself, he just needs to start his own business.
