- If the president Trudeau government’s trip to Washington last week were a success.
- Since Trudeau’s return from Washington, the Americans must banned P.E.I. potatoes.
Doubled the duty on softwood lumber, also passed the legislation Trudeau needed to stop through the House. “The Liberal government has failed farmers, foresters, and factory workers,” Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole said in the House of Commons on Thursday.
O’Toole is correct in his assessment. The Trudeau administration failed in Washington and is now leaving Canadian workers. Notwithstanding the facts in front of them, the Liberals believe everything is going swimmingly.
“We can call it a success,” Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said after her trip to Washington. “Why?” she inquired before responding to her question. “Because we addressed some major issues, including, of course, climate change.”
She described other issues, such as the pandemic, but she didn’t mention any trading success, most likely because there wasn’t any.
President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” which includes several protectionist measures that will harm Canada, came dangerously close to passing while the Canadian delegation was still in Washington celebrating their success. Only a Republican filibuster prevented that from happening, resulting in the bill passing the House on Friday rather than Thursday.
That is the bill that has the potential to destroy the Canadian auto industry. But, unfortunately, the Trudeau government was too late to try to amend the bill, and they don’t appear to have a strategy to stop it in the Senate.
“They have chosen a different path at a time when we need our federal partners to stand up and support us, to stand up and support science, to stand up and do what is right,” King said.
Trudeau did raise the issue of potato warts from P.E.I. with joe Biden, but he then returned to Canada and decided to abandon the fight. Lastly, the Canadian position was that P.E.I. potatoes posed no threat to the U.S. or anyone else; however, Biden appears to have won that argument, and 5,000 workers are now wondering what the future holds.
