Canada's Conservatives Issue Statement on NAFTA

Conservative Party of Canada | August 31, 2018

Ottawa, ON – The Honourable Erin O’Toole, Conservative Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, issued the following statement on NAFTA negotiations:

“Canada’s Conservatives, like all Canadians, want the best deal for families, workers and businesses.

“After spending three months on the sidelines, Canada is now back at the negotiating table trying to make up for lost time. However, it is becoming clear that Mexico and the United States have reached major agreements that impact millions of Canadian jobs. Canadians are rightly concerned that our government was not at the table while these decisions were being made.

“Canadians I have spoken to are frustrated and want to know why Canada is on the outside looking in, while major sectors of our economy and millions of jobs hang in the balance.

“Canada’s Conservatives are the party of free trade and we understand the importance of reliable access to markets for Canadian businesses and workers. We are ready and willing to assist the government at this critical time.”
