Meh.

America already benefits more than Canada from NAFTA and the FTA. A few people in Canada have wanted to drop NAFTA and set up more with China, Japan, or Europe. Just that NAFTA is best for both America and Canada because we're right beside each other.

Right now Canada imports way too much from the US. I kinda hope the deals do get scrapped because that means way more jobs in Canada. A 35% tariff would mean more Canadian jobs and less buying US goods. Trudeau wants to keep trade open because obviously countries benefit with more trade, but it's at the cost of jobs. American is x10 as large as Canada. Our major stores often get bought out by american companies. Walmart and stores like it take the place of Canadian stores. Even recently burger king bought out Tim Hortons so that's now American owned too.

Check out Canadian responses to Trump saying we'll renegotiate NAFTA: our prime minister, ambassador, and many others have basically said, "sure".

Trump really can't do much damage either way it ends up IMO. Canada is pretty solid on it's own.

Even though he said he'll tear it up I imagine once he looks at it he'll want to leave it in place or just modify it for the benefit of his own economy.

Mexico on the other hand...

Kinda hope Trump forces Canada to drop poultry/dairy quotas and other protectionist tariffs it just fucks us here more than anything else. Open demostic airway competiition too, we're getting hosed here. would save me a lot of $

Meanwhile the big poltical issue here these days is Trudeau Jr. appointing a new LQGBQ2T minister to determine the new age of anal consen so homos can bang 14 year olds in the ass.

Please save us, Trump. Canada is retarded country
