U.S., Canada and Mexico Outline NAFTA Priorities – Canada’s Hilarious Virtue Signaling, and Mexico Perpetually Offended…

I find it interesting that Chinese TV is more interested in NAFTA renegotiation than most U.S., Canada or Mexico media.  Against the backdrop of China exploiting NAFTA as a backdoor into the U.S. market we accept this disparate level of interest is not accidental. China is specifically the “third party dumper” mentioned by Robert Lighthizer.

The negotiations can have as many as six rounds; each round lasting 5 days; two rounds in each nation, over the course of three months, with each round tackling a different economic sector.

It is also entirely possible they could also end sooner, much sooner.

The introductory remarks by Trade representatives from Canada, Mexico and the U.S. can be considerably enlightening for those who review the transparent political agendas behind the trade discussions.  I have a spidey sense these first round negotiations might not even make it to Sunday.

In the video below it is interesting to watch Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, outline her priorities (also here in more detail).  Ms. Freeland gives her remarks in English, Spanish and French.  If you can watch Freeland without A.) Laughing hysterically, or B.) punching your TV/Computer screen, well, you’re Job.

Through Ms. Freedlan’s leadership – Canada is focused on ensuring a “progressive trade agenda”.  She is demanding a focus on LGBTQ, and specifically transgender rights in the trade deal, in addition to cultural sensitivity aspects, and climate change. Go figure.

Remarks begin at 04:50 of video with a quick housekeeping set up by Robert Lighthizer.

Ms. Freeland remarks begin at 06:00.

Mr. Guajardo remarks at 12:45 and

Ambassador Lighthizer at 17:50.

.

The Mexicans are already offended, and it’s only the opening remarks:

And now you know why Canada desperately wants to keep the Chapter 19 dispute settlement clause. – EXPLAINED HERE

    Freeland’s prefacing demand to “focus on LGBTQ, and specifically transgender rights in the trade deal, in addition to cultural sensitivity aspects, and climate change” and aboriginal or “1st Nation” rights is routine. The Liberals always let their people know how each citizen stands on their priority list. During the recent Canada Day celebrations, the same PC priority list was even longer and the only group that did not make the Liberal’s favored list at all were the millions of English speaking Caucasian Canadians that established British Common Law and built the economy. They are the evil ones.

      Talk about the tail wagging the dog….this lgbtq thing is one hair on the tail wagging the dog. Problem they do not recognize it is a laughable bargaining chip that will hold no sway what so ever. This is so much to do about nothing!

        Mr. Wonderful does not have a clue. If he is lucky they will tell him what is in the deal before the final signing. The socks picture is a very good signal about what that guy is all about.

          That could make for the most hilarious demonstration of the abject idiocy to promoting sexual deviancy, lol!

          Imagine Trade Representative Lighthizer standing before a Congressional committee with some extension cords, and Secretary Mnuchin and Secretary Ross stand by with some wall outlets attached to a wooden board for the demonstration.

          They could demonstrate to the whole Congress why male-male connections and female-female connections simply don’t work, and then invite wise men and women of Congress to “come on down, and give it a try!”.

          LOL!

    I think Minister Freeland is signaling Canada’s desire to corner the market on reassignment surgery at Canadian taxpayer expense. I hope our trade reps aren’t fooled by her and we lose that valuable business that causes a testerone imbalance in USA.

    The wolverines are going to chew the head off the rooster, cut the head off the snake and kick the Canucks butt. NAFTA will be a dead duck in a couple of months and the US will go to bi-lateral agreements negotiated from a position of strength. It’s going to be fun to watch Wilber at work.

    Between the Canadian socialite’s preoccupation with deviant sex acts and the perpetual outrage of the Mexican drama queens, why waste any more time on this Jerry Springer show?

      Sound was all we needed GC👍

      Stroking sound, even more stroking sounds coming from the Canadian delegation. She was basking in her multi-lingual verbal gymnastics (shouting, “I love me who do you love”?) and her two minders (one, a female lumberjack the other a cross dressing female Mountie) were doing all the stroking.

      Splutter, fart, splutter, splutter and even more farting coming from the Mexican delegation as the truth dawns on them that they are the gooseberries in the event.

    On watching this the second time, I noticed the hand positioning of the two Mexicans on either side of the Mexican speaker. Since I don’t know body language like Bombard and others, I can’t tell whether the interlacing of hands expresses a feeling of power or what. Help, anyone?

    Umm, Ms Freeland, please tell me how LGBTQWERTY rights have ANYthing to do with international trade. Does their presence or absence strengthen your country’s overall economic position? Do those rights make Canada’s citizens more secure, more wealthy? Do those rights generate tax revenue for the Canadian government? Do those rights prevent genital mutilation and murder of homosexuals by the Islamic nations with which Canada will undoubtedly continue to trade? Or are you simply another progressive touchy-feelie female politician, determined to feed the vanity of the various self-described victim groups who make up your coalition?

    Considering she left the the Canada/EU trade talks “almost in tears” because 1 region in begium was being difficult(and the EU partners dealt with after freeeland ran away crying), I wonder how long before Freeland is going to run away and have a complete meltdown when mexico and he United states use her as their Trade punching bag?

    That’s what happens when you put people in positions they are not qualified for because a SJW was more concerned about an absurd penis-to-vagina ratio instead of credentials.
