Once you look beyond the spin from Trudeau & the establishment media, it’s obvious that Canadian negotiators didn’t get any real wins out of the agreement.
At the present moment, the Trudeau government and establishment media are teaming up to make it seem like the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is a big win for our country.
But that’s not the case.
Not only does the deal simply preserve the status quo while shifting that status quo more in favour of the U.S., but it also didn’t even remove the tariffs imposed on Canada’s steel and aluminum industry.
Considering how ‘intense’ the negotiations supposedly were, it’s almost unbelievable that the issue of steel and aluminium tariffs weren’t addressed in the deal.
And that’s not the only example of how Canada made one-way concessions.
We can see that all the changes to the agreement are in the favour of the U.S., while Trudeau’s ‘wins’ are simply the avoidance of negatives.
The U.S. will get further access to our dairy market, they’ve put a cap on our auto exports, metal tariffs are still in place, and the Trudeau government surrendered on intellectual property. Additionally, there are indications that the deal will increase prescription drug prices in Canada.
So, Canada only avoided some disastrous changes, while making concessions, and getting no real concessions in return.
That is NOT a win.
