Young workers turn their backs on Trudeau today.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given "his strongest indication yet" that he will ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), according to Bloomberg News.
Earlier today, Trudeau stated, "It’s difficult to imagine a world where Canada would turn its back on three of its top five trading partners. We established very clearly during the campaign that we’re a pro-trade party."
He made the comment at the Canadian Labour Congress' National Young Workers' Summit in Ottawa. He was presumably referring to the United States, Japan and Mexico as three signatory countries to the TPP. And as noted in his comment today, Trudeau did say the Liberals are a pro-free trade party during the last federal election.
