Do it next time

The London Free Press - - LETTERS -

Prof. Erika Simp­son clearly ex­plains the com­plex­i­ties of our deal­ings with Saudi Ara­bia, but pol­i­tics has no place in the man­age­ment of a con­tract.

When Canada and Saudi Ara­bia signed the ve­hi­cle agree­ment in 2014, it would have listed con­di­tions for can­cel­la­tion. The killing of a Saudi ci­ti­zen was not in the list of con­di­tions, oth­er­wise Trudeau would not be hint­ing about a bil­lion-dol­lar can­cel­la­tion penalty.

What is the point of writ­ing a con­tract if the par­ties can can­cel it de­pend­ing what they feel is im­por­tant that day? The time for this dis­cus­sion should oc­cur when the next con­tract is be­ing ne­go­ti­ated with Saudi Ara­bia, not now. Wal­ter Lonc Lon­don
