SIDELINED: While US & EU Reach Agreement, Canada Could Still Be Hit By Auto Tariffs

Canada remains on the outside looking in.

While the US and Mexico are meeting to discuss NAFTA without Canada at the table, there’s another way in which we’re being left out.

CNBC is reporting that “A handshake agreement between the United States and European Union reached in late July may have staved off the imposition of auto tariffs for German, French and Italian carmakers.”

But it’s not looking so good for Canada at the moment:

“Still, the White House is reserving the right to impose the tariffs on vehicles made in Canada, a senior administration official told CNBC on Friday. Ford, General Motors, Honda and Fiat Chrysler are among the automakers with operations in Canada.”

So, this is now the situation we’re facing: The US is making deals with Mexico and the EU, while Canada is on the sidelines. We’re on the outside looking in as decisions are made that could severely damage our economic future.

Once again, this is when we must remember how about a year ago the US wanted a quick NAFTA deal with Canada, so they could focus on their trade deficit with Mexico. The Trudeau government refused, talked about “solidarity” with Mexico, tried to put a bunch of pointless virtue-signalling into the agreement, and wasted a bunch of time. In that wasted time, the US and Mexico started working closer together, and the Trump Administration turned their anger towards Canada.

Trudeau’s refusal of a bilateral deal may turn out to have been a historically disastrous mistake.

“Trudeau’s refusal of a bilateral deal may turn out to have been a historically disastrous mistake.”

Electing Trudeau with the help of Soros, Tides Canada and Dogwood was a historically disastrous mistake. It is entirely likely that this Country will never really recover.

Good, maybe it will finally split up. The east/west does not work. The east uses the west as a source of income but gives nothing back in return. The west has no representation in ottawa. ottawa dictates to the west, always has, always will unless the west leaves.

Problem is Del, the media are deliberately keeping Trudeau’s disaster from the public but, other countries are not buying into the media’s tactics since they have a nation to run. Mexico imo, feel more confident doing business with Trump than with a child like Justin Trudeau. Justin Trudeau assumed that with his darken hair and fake eyebrows and his fake feminism will cause a great influx of businesses into Canada but, instead scared them with high taxes and restriction nonsense out of Canada. I firmly believe that Justin is unperturbed at the downward spiral we are heading just as long… Read more »

Now maybe the idiots who elected this imbecile will realize how stupid their decision was in electing another trudo. The first one almost destroyed this country, hopefully this one will. That would be a great thing to go down in history with. The trudos being the cause of splitting up a country. What a historical achievement that would be in the history books for the future.

I remember the liberals under Ignatieff blaming then PMSH for creating the ‘World’s recession when in truth he, PMSH guided us through the world recession. Now, the liberals under this narcissist ass Justin Trudeau, is creating a recession on Canada while the world prospers.

With all of the evidence of Trudeau’s actions on the economy and national unity , it is very clear what Trudeau’s plans for Canada are. Being the dedicated socialist/communist, like his father Pierre Trudeau: he wants to complete the twisted and evil dream Pierre Trudeau had and that is to turn Canada,a capitalist free market economy country into his version of a socialist /communist country like Cuba or Venezuela. And the first step in that direction, used by all aspiring dictators, is to lower the level of employment, increase taxes, and chase away investment and businesses. All so that everyone… Read more »
