Breakthrough in the American Protectionism Issue

Good news! A deal has finally been struck in the American protectionism issue due to the hard work of PM Harper and his government to get the job done. A lot of people thought it was a lost cause. Of course the opposition are going find something to gripe about in this deal. Never mind them, this government deserves to be congratulated!

The American government deserves credit too. We can work together with our American cousins to get things done. The softwood lumber agreement, now this.

Way to go PM Harper, Minister Day, Van Loan,and Cannon!

Wonder how the Lame Stream Media is going to spin this,it's just too positive.

OTTAWA -- With official confirmation that Ottawa and Washington have struck a deal on Buy American provisions, Veso Sobot is letting out a major sigh of relief -- as well as a laugh or two. He can’t help but be a bit giddy.

“Oh my goodness, absolutely, we are very happy,” said Mr. Sobot, director of corporate affairs at IPEX Inc., a Toronto-based pipe manufacturer that gained notoriety after the introduction of Buy American rules for having its pipe fittings pulled out of the ground in California because they had the ‘Made in Canada’ designation on them.

“This will allow us to compete again. We are tickled pink and we are going to be aggressive about trying to compete for business in the Untied States, and I hope this can help bolster our 2010 and bring back jobs to Canada.”

International Trade Minister Peter Van Loan and Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon announced Friday morning that a deal had been struck.

"Preserving and creating jobs is the Canadian government's top priority," Mr. Van Loan said. "Our government stood up for Canadian businesses and workers in resolving this issue with our U.S. partners." (h/t) Vancouver Sun


  1. Great news indeed.
    The conservatives continue to work behind the scenes for the country they love whereas the liberals continue to work on scene with the media to undermind the prime minister the nation, to suit themselves.
    BTW, did you see today's NP front page. A photo of the PM when he was a young man in hockey uniform; you will also see a photo of the PM and son at a hockey game.

  2. Thanks but no, Jen I haven't seen it, I'll have to go and check it out.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
