Chapter activist Rick Arnold
The Council of Canadians Northumberland chapter has published an op-ed on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in Northumberland Today.
Chapter activist Rick Arnold writes, "Many of us here in Northumberland County have been transfixed by US President Donald Trump's recent harsh rhetoric towards Canada and in response to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's attempt to placate the White House. Free-trade proponents would have us believe that NAFTA renegotiations is like a high-stakes game of poker to see who can gain advantage and out-manoeuvre the other. But let's not be fooled for a moment that it's a battle between equals. The renegotiation of NAFTA is not going to be a win-win proposition for either junior partner, Canada or Mexico."
