Trudeau’s NAFTA Climate Change Agenda Running Into Trump Wall

As the U.S., Canada and Mexico seek a new and improved North American Free Trade Agreement in negotiations this week, climate change has become a chief obstacle.

Negotiators will be spending seven hours on Tuesday discussing the environment alone.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants any renegotiated NAFTA to include his climate change agenda. Good luck with that, says the Conservative opposition, who note that President Donald Trump yanked the United States out of the Paris climate accord.

That prompted an angry response from Trudeau’s environment minister, Catherine McKenna, who unleashed a Twitter storm Sunday against the Conservatives.

    It’s like the high school student council is running the country.

      Teenage antics when negotiating trade agreement with serious consequences for the economy. Unemployed automotive workers in Ontario (among many others) may thank Liberals for trying to cool the annual average temperature in Oshawa by 0.00000001 degree.

      NAFTA is dead and if the following bilateral agreement won’t work , Canada is going down. The border can be opened and US will wipe-out what is left.
      Thanks for celebrating 150 anniversary with retarded government.

      Edit: oops…the border is already opened.

      Or mao’s red guard, or lenin’s bolcheviks, or pol pots cadres… They keep failing, but keep resurrecting the same failed ideology over and over and over – they are the definition of stupid!

    • Like, shut up! You are so un-cool 4-evah!

    Oh, Shiny Pony. You are as exhausting as a two year old sometimes.

    • A two year old grows out of his tantrums. Trust-fund Boy didn’t.

    First rule of negotiation: you have to be taken seriously. Liberals are trying to buy big ticket items with Canadian Tire money.

      lol – that canadian tire money might one day be worth more than our dollar!

      Canada has no leverage at all in anything in these negotiations.

    I’ve got my beer and popcorn. If you cant’ sway their ideology, at least use it for entertainment! My money is on Freeland running out of the NAFTA talks in tears again – just like the EU trade summit – poor snowflake!

    It’s an international disgrace that Canada sent such a pack of stunned cnuts to the negotiations.

      It is a national disgrace that they hold government positions and even more of one for the reason you covered.

  • Justin does as his puppeteers tell him to.

  • Dana Garcia

    Part of the NAFTA deal was supposed to raise Mexico out of the economic dark ages, but it’s still the same old backwater with its hand out for freebies and open borders.

    • The Butterfly

      Maybe the problem is the people.

      • Dana Garcia

        True enough, but the richie rich somehow manage to do quite well.

    • Alain

      To have any hope of that all the profound corruption along with the cartels would have to be eliminated. Corruption has not decreased, in fact I suggest it has done the opposite, and the cartels are stronger than before.

  • Gary

    Liberals thought that Hillary would win and that they could both destroy North American by removing the borders and flooding us with unskilled sloths wanting welfare and would vote Liberal/Democrat for Life .

    Justin does get it. It’s not Trump’s job to get him elected in 2019 to screw over Canadian even more with his Diversity wagon full of malcontent whiners and 10th century islamists .
