Questions for MP Francis Drouin
Earlier this spring I asked our MP Francis Drouin a very direct but polite question for which I did not get a serious response. Perhaps he was too busy shutting down the SNC Lavalin justice committee at the time and will address the question if I asked it publicly.
Mr. Drouin, your government has failed miserably on the agricultural trade front. An amateurish virtue signalling tweet from Chrystia Freeland resulted in Saudi Arabia blocking imports of Canadian agricultural products. India blocked imports of Canadian chick peas and lentils following an embarrassing and insulting debacle in which our PM invited a alleged Khalistani terrorist to party with him and also mocked Indian culture with his ridiculous outfits and dance moves.
China is now blocking imports of Canadian agricultural products following the detainment of a Chinese business person. This of course was legal and justified, but obviously poorly handled from a diplomatic perspective as our PM clearly receives no respect from the Chinese leader who dismisses him as the “Little Potato.”
Canadian farmers are bearing the financial burden of these trade blunders. What is your government's plan to correct the situation?
