Doug Ford says he stands with Trudeau on trade

The Western Star - - OBITUARIES / CANADA -

TORONTO — Doug Ford says that while he may clash with Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau on is­sues like car­bon pric­ing, he will stand side by side with the fed­eral govern­ment when it comes in­ter­na­tional trade and protecting Cana­dian jobs. On­tario’s newly elected pre­mier-des­ig­nate stressed the need to present a united front dur­ing com­plex trade ne­go­ti­a­tions, even as he reaf­firmed his plan to scrap the pro­vin­cial cap-and-trade sys­tem and fight up­com­ing fed­eral rules on car­bon pric­ing. “Are we go­ing to have some dif­fer­ences in­ter­nally within the fam­ily per se? I’m sure we’ll have a few bumps,’’ Ford told re­porters on Wed­nes­day. “When it comes about in­ter­na­tional trade and work­ing with the United States and Mex­ico, make no mis­take about it ... we’re go­ing to stand side by side.’’
