It’s election day in the United States but across Canada, many people will be gathering for the season finale of the ultimate political reality TV show; the U.S. presidential election.
From coast to coast to coast, Canadians and Americans in Canada will be glued to television sets and computers watching the results.
Many pubs in big cities are hosting special events, with scenes expected to resemble a Game 7 of a World Series or Stanley Cup playoff.
In the meantime, Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall will be monitoring the U.S. presidential election results.
Wall says he has concerns that the two main contenders, Hilliary Clinton and Donald Trump do not appear to be free traders.
He says the Trans-Pacific Partnership is important for Saskatchewan’s farming sector and both the U.S. candidates are against it.
Premier Wall says the Trudeau government will need to talk to the winner about maintaining Canada’s trading status with the U.S.
