Canada's 10 NAFTA demands: A list of what Canada wants as talks start this week - Politics - CBC News

"Freer movement of professionals

"NAFTA includes a list of professions where people can easily get a visa to work across the border. It's an old list — it mentions land surveyors and range conservationists, but not computer programmers. International companies want this list expanded to make it easier for employees to move between offices."

This I certainly agree with and would say Canada should go even farther than that. In fact, I'd say Canada should throw that one in unilaterally. If the other partner's do not reciprocate, then more high-tech firms will prefer to move to Canada so they can more easily access IT professionals from all three countries.

As for the other demands, I'm skeptical of some. It depends on the details. As for others, I think we should abandon them.

The supply-management system needs to go as do cultural exemptions.

I don't care if she cries or not: that's her business. Heck, if her crying helps negotiations, I'd say go for it.

My concern is with the actual proposals. She still wants to defend supply management and cultural exemptions, things we never should have included in the original NAFTA.

As for proposed labour, environmental, and indigenous chapters, I can't comment since the article provides not enough info on those. The devil will be in the details there.

Although when she mentions higher Mexican wages, I don't see how Mexico could afford it just yet. On that front, if she's talking about a North American minimum wage, then I certainly oppose it.

As a proud and patriotic Canadian who loves this country the phrase "Canadas demands" is laughable and ludicrous. Unfortunately we are in no position to demand anything.

Welcome to the real world and I don't like it either.

Getting rid of the Communist-like dairy, eggs cartel and raising limits on duties plus making CanCom loosen up (we don't need the CRTC at all) as demanded by the USA will benefit 99% of Canadians.

Trudeau of course, is not negotiating on behalf of you and me. He is negotiating on behalf of a tiny minority of groups who have been screwing the general public since John A was in diapers.

The loss of supply management is a non starter for both Ontario and Quebec.

Nobody who wants to form a federal government can do that.

For Ontario and Quebec dairy farmers? You're right.

================================================== ================================================== =============================

That "free movement of professionals" deal that LIE-berals want implemented WILL NEVER FLY WITH YANKEES!!!!!!!

Cdn LIE-beral national security is so riddled with holes that such free movement would allow all manner of Muslim, Russian and Chinese spies to enter United States using Cdn passports!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS for cultural exemptions for things like Cdn news media- that WOULD be acceptable to Yankees if we did more to protect Yankees from foreign spies and organized crime gangs from infiltrating into United States!!!!!!!!!

Just recently Yankee border security ARRESTED 2 MS 13 gang members at the border as they tried to sneak into United States USING LEGITIMATE CDN DOCUMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As another example- several decades back - Yankee security arrested a Cdn Muslim at the border as he tried to enter United States with his car trunk full of explosives- that he planned to set off in the parking garage of World Trade Centre!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And what of the wanted terrorist who posed for a selfie with Our idiot Boy at some festival in 2016??????

The terrorist just strolled through the govt security detail- posed and walked away again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently it took a Yankee cop to identify the guy!!!!!!!!!!!!

And what are Yankees to make of the Trudeau insistence that returning Isis fighters can "be a powerful voice in our community"?

Other countries KILL Isis fighters but Our idiot Boy wants to make them into LIE-beral party roving ambassadors!!!!!!!!

================================================== ================================================== ====


Poor LIE-berals- they simply do NOT want to face reality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


ALL LIE-beral trade problems stem from their contempt for national security!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Trump considers that criminals using Canada as a base of operations to prey upon Yankees IS A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE!!!!!!!!!


When it comes to trade and national security- the ENTIRE WORLD is laughing at Our idiot Boy Justin!!!!!!!!!!!



Here is an article illustrating exactly how out of touch Our idiot Boy is with regard to trade and national security issues. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Chinese ambassador says Trudeau's 'progressive' agenda has no place in free trade pact

From Canadian Press. Published: April 10, 2018. Updated: April 10, 2018 4:26 PM EDT

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ News/ Canada

OTTAWA — China’s ambassador says his country firmly rejects Canada’s attempts to entrench labour standards in a free trade pact.

Envoy Lu Shaye says Canada’s so-called progressive trade agenda has no place in a free trade agreement.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was unable to persuade China’s leaders to formally entrench labour, gender, environment and governance issues in the negotiating framework of free trade talks.

(It is silly enough for Our idiot Boy to talk progressive trade issues with our Yankee allies but it is quite utterly INSANE to talk progressive issues with China! China has a LONG HISTORY of using convicted criminals and political prisoners in dangerous and dirty jobs- working these social undesirables as slave labour! Our idiot Boy actually thought he could discuss women`s issues and the rights of people labouring in Chinese Galags with his Chinese pals! The Chinese must have wondered what Our idiot Boy was smoking? Or maybe they were just put off by his tactless stupidity and hunger for selfies?)

(After all, Pierre Trudeau heaped fawning praise on Chairman Mao for “his genius in rushing 30 million Chinese to the gallows”! And Our idiot Boy told us a couple of years back that he admires the Chinese Communist Party “for the way they get things done”! And idiot brother Sacha Trudope penned an homage to vile Cuban dictator Castro in which he claimed that “Castro ws the greatest South American leader of the twentieth century- and much superior to other leaders who had only been elected”!)

(And yet- there was Our idiot Boy whining about progressive social issues to Chinese leaders who consider the entire Trudeau clan to be “useful idiots”- to use the Lenin phrase! China will be polite enough to the Trudopes when it is convenient for China! But they have no desire to become props in the psycho drama being played out by a silver spoon socialist with “daddy issues” like Our idiot Boy!)

(Pierre Trudeau has clearly indoctrinated his boys fully into his poisoned mind set that includes such philosophical gems a these: “that the war against Nazi Germany was British imperialism” and that what Pierre referred to as “Cdn Imperialism” has to be destroyed- apparently Pierre was referring to what we now call “white privilege”! With such a twisted freak family back ground it is little wonder that Our idiot Boy thinks that Isis fighters returning to Canada “can become a powerful voice in our country”! And there is little surprise that Chinese leaders refused to be part of the Trudope progressive trade parade that seems motivated mainly by a hope that Our idiot Boy can find some international approval and support for the wsy he is deliberately screwing up NAFTA to spite the Yankees that he hates!)

Trudeau spent four days in China in December but left without a formal commitment to moving the free trade talks past the exploratory phase into formal negotiations.

Lu says Canada’s insistence on pushing labour standards in the NAFTA talks with Mexico to raise wages would only lead to the shuttering of Mexican auto plants and lost jobs.

(Yes- the Chinese see more clearly than Our idiot Boy! The jobs went to Mexico as a vital way to control rising union costs and make Yankee cars more affordable- in the face of formidable sales pressure from other auto makers around the world! A trade agreement that raised Mexican wages WOULD result in CLOSED Mexican car plants as higher prices killed car sales!)

Lu says starting a free trade negotiation with Canada would send a strong message to the world as it contends with the Trump administration’s “America First” protectionism.

(Our idiot Boy would be DELIGHTED to set up a free trade deal with China! The problem is that such a deal would GUT CDN SOVEREIGNTY! Chinese negotiators play HARD BALL! A free trade deal with China would make those current Trump demands on national security- which would BENEFIT CANADA AS WELL AS YANKEES- seem simple and mild compared to Chinese requirements for a deal! Our idiot Boy must have been badly disappointed at having his progressive trade shtick so bluntly rebuffed by the Chinese after having spent so many years as a dedicated, card carrying member of the silver spoon socialist “useful idiot” brigade!)

As a proud Trudeau represents me and all the other Canadians Gig you are a poor example of a Canadian because you never learned the value of our culture. We must stand up for our country no matter how big America is and from past dealings with the US we know that following the rules is not one of their strong points. So if we have to hope for a good and also hope that Canada will walk away from a bad deal. When Trump is voted out in two or six years we can talk then in the meantime we can develop other markets. we did it before we will do it again.

Unfortunately due to the voting patterns, Quebec does matter.

Canada will get whatever the USA decides to give us; period.

Whether that is what liar-in-chief grant us or whether we get a deal from US government bureaucrats is very much uncertain.

Certainly our dairy cartel has to be destroyed, and the CRTC is as useful as teats on a boar.

Much as I despise Trump, if he destroys or cripple these institutions he will be doing Canadian consumers a great service.

In addition, Trumps flattening of our pathetic excuse for a PM can only be a good thing.

Butt did a very comprehensive job contributing the the crippling of Ontario with his 100% counter productive idiotic environmental programs re. energy.

Butts appears to be an ultra orthodox Gore-ite, or Suzuki-ite which means he is a dangerous fool.

The sooner he and his puppet imitation of a PM are history the better for Canada.
