A free trade deal with China would mean lower wages and even worse conditions for Canadian workers.
Guy Saint-Jacques – Canada’s former Ambassador to China – says China will demand the ability to import Chinese citizens into Canada as workers as part of any free trade deal.
As reported by the Globe & Mail, Saint-Jacques said China “will want to have full access to our natural resources, including uranium mining. They will want an expansion of trade in services. They will want to be able to bring Chinese workers to Canada.”
He added, “At the end of the day, it will be a question of sitting down and saying, ‘okay – if we make concessions as the Chinese want, are we really sure that we are getting enough in exchange?’ “
Unsurprisingly, Saint-Jacques still says “We have to proceed with these talks,” since most of Canada’s elite class could care less about the severe damage such a deal would do to Canadian workers and Canada’s national sovereignty.
We know that many of the elites don’t really see themselves as Canadian citizens, and are much more comfortable attending events around the world with their globalist buddies. So, because a free trade deal between Canada and China would make the elites and global corporations richer, they support it, despite the damage it will do to Canada’s ability to control our own future and the devastating impact it will have on our workers.
Canadian workers would pay a serious price if China was able to import workers, as wages would go down, jobs are taken away from Canadians, and the leverage of each Canadian worker is eroded.
Additionally, Canadian citizens would lose even more control over our country, as decisions made in Beijing would hold increasing sway over our lives.
That’s why a Canada-China free trade deal must be stopped.
