I’m pretty sure it goes without saying that there’s no place for discrimination in the work force. The person who’s hired by a company should be the most qualified and shouldn’t be hired based on the colour of their skin. Obviously, this isn’t always the case and that’s why we’ve created Affirmative Action laws. But this isn’t about that, this is about the unintentional humour that is this NAFTA demand. Oh, the United States would like us to not discriminate against others? Bold demand coming from a country that’s current president announced his candidacy by calling the people of fellow NAFTA member Mexico “rapists and murderers”. As well as creating a ban that stops people from predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
Like, good on the United States for saying that racism is in fact bad, but maybe look in the mirror before you start telling other people how to act. Canada may not be perfect but at least we’re not creating blatantly racist policies and then acting like the rest of the world is the problem.
Was also a bold move to go after other countries minimum wage when Ontario is raising it’s minimum wage to $15, while the average minimum wage in the U.S. is $7.25.
These demands are pretty much the real life version of this:
Another great part about these demands is that they’re 18 pages long. That’s right, Trump wants to renegotiate a 23 year old agreement that’s over 1000 pages long with 18 measly fucking pages, 2 of which are the introduction. Trump’s administration thinks a document shorter then a fourth year essay requirement is going to get the job done. It’s almost commendable how much this administration lives and breathes by K.I.S.S.
Seriously though, if Trudeau doesn’t dunk on Trump at these meetings we might as well pack up and just join the United States of Trump. Losing to Trump in these negotiations would be like being swindled by the Cleveland Browns.
