The provincial government seems to be changing their tune regarding their stance on the federal government’s handling of trade talks between Canada, Mexico and the United States.
Trade Minister Jeremy Harrison is urging federal Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland to avoid talking about gender and carbon pricing issues.
Harrison said a focus is needed on the economics of a deal.
“We’ve seen in some other discussions virtue signalling around things like gender and carbon pricing and all the rest of it,” he said.
Harrison said Canada’s in a challenging spot, as we’ve been ways from the bargaining table and the U.S and Mexico have now reached a bi-lateral trade understanding.
