He would rather watch Canada burn, just to save a few political %%%.
Watch out for a fall election, complete with all kinds of utterly false patriotism from PM 'post national state',and the leftist brigades who want Canada to die anyway.
There will be no deal...Liberals don't want a deal...period. They are using the conflict with Trump as a strategy, and have no problem sacrificing trade deals. Trudeau has already displayed an outward contempt for logic when it comes to strengthening our economy and trade into the future. He's finally figured out budgets don't balance themselves, but he doesn't give a shit, image and popularity is far more important to him than trade.
Iveson completely nailed it nailed it in his column yesterday.
Liberals eye potential electoral gains from 'taking on the tyrant' Trump
Has Chrystia Freeland given up hope of a renegotiated NAFTA deal and resolved instead to use opposition to Donald Trump in Canada to ramp up domestic support for the Liberals ahead of next year’s general election?
How else to explain her appearance at Monday’s Women in the World summit in Toronto, on a panel entitled Taking on the Tyrant?
Freeland continues to pay lip-service to the prospect of a deal — that it can be done, with good will and flexibility on all sides.
But how much good will is the notoriously ill-willed Trump likely to extend once he is informed that Canada’s global affairs minister sat on a stage while a video played comparing him to a rogue’s gallery of autocrats including Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad?
Freeland is a freaking disaster, she is doing everything she possibly can to insult and poke Trump in the eye, while at the same time trying to work out an amicable trade deal between our two countries. It's hard to imagine someone being so clueless in the middle of a negotiation. There can be really only one of two possibilities...either she's a complete idiot and a fool, or this is intentional and she's purposefully trying to sabotage any hope at striking a fair deal.
