Look off­shore for new part­ner­ships

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

RE: The new Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment

We Cana­di­ans have for many years felt close to our south­ern neigh­bours, not so in the im­me­di­ate fu­ture, as I see it. Canada and Mex­ico are both be­ing scru­ti­nized for any ad­van­tage that the new Washington gov­ern­ment can force upon us. The Bully thing, right?

I can fore­see a change if such could be the case. There is a new swain on the hori­zon, one with con­sid­er­ably more fi­nan­cial po­ten­tial to de­velop ei­ther us or Mex­ico or both. Both na­tions may well see a turn away from their present deal­ings to look to at an ad­van­tage off­shore. I be­lieve that this may be an ace to hold on to in any ne­go­ti­a­tions.

Lis­ten to the clos­est ally that the USA has as many say is the case. The Aussies got short shrift and a phone cut-off. Let us tell Justin Trudeau to stand strong, as the USA once told the world. ‘We have noth­ing to fear but fear it­self.’ Earl Blayney, Hamilton
