Scheer Shows Patriotism With United Front On NAFTA

It’s rare to see a political leader set aside partisanship, but Scheer is providing a good example of Patriotic leadership by promoting Canadian unity during NAFTA negotiations.

As Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is in Washington discussing the ongoing NAFTA negotiations, he has been repeatedly pointing out that Canada has a united front when it comes to our message in the US.

This is an important, and patriotic move by Scheer.

Considering how the Trudeau government is struggling with NAFTA – in part due to their naive virtue-signalling approach that deserves criticism – it would be easy for Scheer to gain political mileage by constantly critiquing the government on the NAFTA file.

However, rather than score political points by attacking the government in the U.S., Scheer is showing a level of patriotism and leadership that is a stark contrast from what Trudeau has done.

After all, Trudeau has criticized the opposition parties to American audiences, showing that he’s more interested in appeasing elites in other countries than keep our country unified. It’s made all the worse by the fact that Trudeau isn’t just an MP, he’s someone who has a position that makes others see him as speaking on behalf of Canada (even though we know he doesn’t speak for most Canadians), which magnifies the impact of his divisive games.

By contrast, Scheer is treating Canada like a solid family by keeping disagreements within the home (country), and supporting the good of our nation when confronting a serious trade challenge outside the country.

Of course, there are some deeper issues with NAFTA that aren’t being addressed enough by any party – particularly the ability of Mexico to undercut our manufacturers with cheap labour and dispute resolution mechanisms that infringe on national sovereignty.

But overall, Scheer is putting his country above his party, and he deserves credit for that display of Canadian Patriotism.

He has plans to buy any Media he can catch. Besides ,he buys it with our Canadian money and turns it into tabloids to glorify himself as usual,and to spread his snake-oil speeches, tears and half naked selfies, like CBC has never failed to do. The dishonesty of the Media is so blatant that only a corrupt Liberal can miss it. If they can not produce credible news, and, instead,cover up for the Government scandals, they are tabloid entertainment and should be able to keep themselves alive with their own steam.. If they don’t, they do not need to be… Read more »

Fully agree here. This shows a strong level of maturity by Scheer and I think will serve him well. I just hope the Liberals reciprocate too as I think on an issue like NAFTA we should have a united front and leave the party squabbling for back home.

I’ve been waiting for Scheer to take a step beyond that of simply making Terdeau look like the total moron that he is in the House.

Scheer Just Proved He Is A Patriot, As Well Mr. Scheer has swallowed a load of crap trudeau has been spinning, blaming everything on the previous Government.Anyone above a Grade 6 education with a poor memory knows trudeau is full of crap. Mr. Scheer has shown trudeau how a Leader can bend and work for the better of Canada knowing that he will not receive an iota of credit. trudeau, naturally, has a Huge EGO, one that will not allow for such petty things as apologizing for his beatdown on Canadians, slagging them for the Mysterious Hijab Cutting that, of… Read more »
