    Ottawa invokes rarely used law in Buy America row with U.S.

    Thoughts - Free trade-
    Ottawa invokes rarely used law in Buy America row with U.S. - The Globe and Mail

    Ottawa has invoked a rarely used anti-sanctions law after Alaska refused to void Buy America purchasing rules in the rebuilding of a B.C. ferry terminal.

    The Canadian government signed an order Monday under the Foreign Extraterritorial Measures Act, barring companies from complying with the requirement that only U.S. steel be used on the project in Prince Rupert, B.C., Trade Minister Ed Fast said.

    I believe this is in response to a break in a mutual trade agreement signed some time ago.

    In any event, it does not look good on the Conservatives who have been playing nice with Wasington.

    Wasn't there a similar dispute years ago regarding softwood lumber?
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Preston manning proved that again and again.

    Mike Pearson and Pierre Trudeau defied Washington on Vietman, draft dodgers, Cuba and a wide range of issues, Trudeau held Nixon in contempt and was esteemed around the world.

    At the direction of Preston Manning, the rat smart Jean Chretien reinforced the banking system, thus avoiding 2008. And the Clown Prince of Quebec withstood intense pressure from Bush to stay out of the Iraq insanity....or did you think the prolonged softwood lumber dispute was really about American jobs?

    No, it was the Lumber Assoc with Politicians in their pocket.
    In a trade war we lose more than the US. Just my opinion.

    Oh man.....

    that was the headline...yep.

    And that what was what started it.

    But, you failed to notice I said "prolonged"....George W. Bush delayed the process to try to force the then Liberal government into submission.

    The Conservatives have been playing nice with Washington??

    Relations between the Harper Conservatives and the Obama administration are about as frosty as relations back when Nixon was bugging Democrats and Pierre Trudeau was sliding down bannisters and pirouetting behind the Queen.
