Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says Canada must now work with the new President in the best interests of both countries.
Wall says President-elect Donald Trump has made election promises which could be positive for Canada.
But the premier says others may may be concerning.
In the recent past, Wall has been clear with his support for the Keystone XL pipeline – and is hopeful this project moves ahead with Republican majorities in both the House and Senate.
“On the other hand, I hope he (Trump) reconsiders his plan to end the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA),” said Wall in a press release to Canadian media.
“I would urge Prime Minister Trudeau and our federal government to reach out to the new administration as soon as possible on these and other issues of importance to our two countries.”
As well, Premier Wall says it makes little sense for the Canadian government to push ahead with imposing a national carbon tax, when Canada’s biggest trading partner is not going to have one.
