According to a new Angus Reid Poll “Canadians overwhelmingly favour taking a “hard” approach toward trade negotiations with the Trump administration going forward, with seven-in-ten (70%) preferring to risk further angering the President rather than taking a “soft” approach to try to win back and maintain his goodwill (30%).”
The problem with this mentality?
We would absolutely lose in a real fist fight with our southern neighbours.
Looking at the above map the reasoning is obvious.
The States simply do not rely on Canadian goods the way Canadians rely on the Americans. If the two respective countries had to suddenly change their economic systems, we (especially Ontario) would be the hardest hit.
Most American States relatively speaking would not even notice.
Given this fact and the reality that we live in, perhaps its time the Prime Minister changed his plan and began to work on a deal which would save the nation from the economic ruin he is heading us into.
