TPP Trade Deal Collapses – Eleven Nation Group Message: “The Canadians Screwed Everybody”…

This has to be,.. scratch that,… ‘THIS IS’ one of the biggest multinational trade embarrassments in the past decade.

President Trump and team U.S.A. have already said  the United States is not engaging in the multilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal (TPP). We’re out, and have been out since the 2016 election. [The U.S. is focusing on direct, one-one-one, bilateral trade agreements.]

However, for the backdrop of this latest TPP development, you might also remember USTR Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Ross expressed the NAFTA plans were at loggerheads, and cancelled the October round of NAFA discussion, because of the ridiculous positions of the Canadians led by Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s far-left Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Well, for several months the eleven nations within the TPP have been negotiating among themselves for the details of the agreement without the United States. The member nations in the TPP-11 group are: Australia, Japan, Brunei, Mexico, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam and Canada.

All eleven trade ministers from the TPP-11 countries had finally agreed on a “substantial conclusion” to the deal. The framework was built over almost two years and it was to be signed off by leaders on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Vietnam today.

Only two days ago Canada’s Minister Chrystia Freeland was harping on the value of the multilateral trade agreement and telling the world how important it was that Canada and the TPP partners had agreed to terms for this historic agreement.

Everything was in place.  The deal was complete and all that was left was signatures from the leaders of the eleven nations.

The signing of the agreement was to take place today, and all of the heads of the eleven states showed up for the grand signing ceremony…  well, except Justin from Canada and Minister Chrystia Freeland:

VIETNAM – Canada has blown a trade pact with Australia and nine other nations out of the water after snubbing a leader’s meeting and making a raft of last minute demands.

All 11 trade ministers from the Trans-Pacific Partnership countries including Canada had agreed on a “substantial conclusion” to the deal. It was to be signed off by leaders on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam on Friday evening.

But the resurrected trade deal — championed by Malcolm Turnbull — is now in limbo after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau raised a raft of last minute issues and stood up a meeting of the 10 other leaders including Mr Turnbull.

After hopes of announcing a breakthrough for the TPP11, following a decision by the eleven countries’ trade ministers to reach a “substantial conclusion”, the trade partnership was not finalised.

Moves by the Turnbull government to champion the deal and seal a free-trade agreement with Peru at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Da Nang were in stark contrast to the US President Donald Trump’s rhetoric on trade.

In a fiery speech to the conference, Mr Trump vowed to take action against China’s “chronic trade abuses” where he declared a new “Indo-Pacific dream” of “fair and reciprocal” trade at a speech at the summit.

Trade ministers from the eleven countries reached an the agreement early on Friday but it required sign-off from their nation’s leaders.

Asked if every leader was waiting and Canada did not show up, Mr Ciobo said: “correct”.

“It’s less than ideal to have every leader and trade minister from the other ten countries sitting around the table and not have Canada there. It’s not an ideal outcome,” he said.

“There is of course still opportunity for us to continue discussions to try to work our way through the last remaining issues Canada raised,” Mr Ciobo said. “But at this point in time it would appear, at the request of Canada, we’ve been unable to have leaders achieve a resolution today.”

A source close to the negotiations said there were “a lot of very angry people, a lot of very pissed off leaders” at the meeting.

“The Canadians screwed everybody,” they said.

The Australian side are understood to be angered over the development, which was seen as deeply embarrassing for Vietnam as the host country.

The TPP11 leaders, all seated around a table, were left fuming after Canada failed to attend and were told the nation had asked for last minute exemptions to the deal.

Lead negotiators Japan and Australia were attempting to get Vietnam and Canada over the line to seal the TPP11 deal by agreeing to resolve a handful of contentious issues. (read more)

This is an epic embarrassment for the host nation Vietnam put upon them by Chrystia Freeland and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    The main reason this deal collapsed is because of NAFTA…once Canada signs on the dotted line, theywill be expected to provide terms and conditions consistent with other nations…Mexico will demand similar treatment…the USA will of course request even better terms as we offer the greatest potential benefit for the Canadians due to proximity and established areas of cooperation. Also, NAFTA if it still exists in 30 more days, will place restrictions on any coming from these other countries…Right now, NAFTA is the backdrop used by everyone to slam all America producers.

      I think this is the point. If NAFTA goes away, Canada’s assumptions about TPP will change. Such is the problem with multi-nation agreements, juggling impossible to fathom assumptions.

      What a nightmare for Trudeau.

      Best to do bilateral. Do what Trump is doing. He is figuring it out after dealing with Wilbur opens his eyes to the bugs in the TPP deal.

    Canada is led by children. Communist fools too, of course. They probably just screwed themselves over on more than TPP; you don’t negotiate with liars and those that would pull such a stunt like this.

    They could not have created a worse perception of their trustworthiness and good faith if they showed up, got on the table golden-showering all their documents and fed their ministers to sharks with frikkin lasers on their heads.

    This will, hopefully, end well, by all Nations following Trumpian policies, and Canada electing their first Reagan.

        This is hilarious. Trudeau is a buffoon and it is great that he has been outed on the world stage.

        He was selected to be PM by the power brokers in Ottawa, somewhat like how Obama was selected by lefty powerbrokers down your way.

        Trudeau is really, really dumb and naive.

        He was the perfect candidate for the Liberals ( really Marxists.) Name recognition, they say good looking, dumb, and naive.

      Maybe, just maybe, it occurred to Justin and Ms. Freeland (or someone else in Canada with a functional brain) that signing the TPP11 agreement without America in it would result in America re-directing its own trade so that Canada would place itself at the “end of the queue”, so-to-speak? At the 11th hour they may have realized that America is Canada’s largest trade partner. Wow, what a concept!

          When reporting follows the style guideline of calling everything our presidents says, “rhetoric”, I guess it is too much to expect that such details be included.
          Sounds like Justin in Canada may have had a sudden epiphany, that everything wise old uncle Trump was telling him for his own good was true.

          Ever been called for jury duty, especially on a civil case, and at the point the plaintiffs/defendants are actually in a court of law, and the jurors are actually being seated, i.e. it is getting real, there suddenly is a back room huddle and some kind of settlement is reached?
          There’s something about actually being there.
          This sounds like Justin had one of those moments.

    Canada may be having a hard time negotiating trade without NAFTA. As I understand it both Mexico and Canada have been used by the Asian countries for their NAFTA benefits in trade.

    So what benefit can Canada get from TPP without NAFTA? Guessing….. but I would imagine the numbers came in for Mr. Trudeau and it doesn’t look good. That pesky Uranium One thing is something to think about. Russia would not have been able to do it without Canadian cooperation. In Saudi Arabia some of those bank accounts have been going to Canada too. Many worries on the horizon.

    There are Globalist and Uniparty revelations lately that should make the PM of Canada uncomfortable. Trade partnerships with the USA is on the line right now, and President Trump could be ending the special trade relationship the Canadians have enjoyed. Trudeau is like a deer in the headlights IMHO.

    12 Hours Later:

    Trade ministers say they have reached a basic agreement on a Pacific Rim trade pact without the United States.

    A statement issued in the early hours Saturday says an accord was reached on “core elements” of the 11-member Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal abandoned by President Donald Trump after he took office.

    The compromise was delayed by last-minute disagreements that prevented TPP leaders from meeting to endorse a plan on Friday.

      Also, as a Canadian I think it is best to wait until a deal is signed with the US.
      The terms agreed to in a Canada-US trade pact would dictate the terms in which we proceed with others.
      Given the rhetoric, it may be in Canadas best financial interest to better leverage our strategic resources (uranium, copper, oil etc) by selling it into emerging markets, and forcing the US to purchase the shortfall from less than friendly nations.
      Trade is not all dollars and cents, especially when strategic assets are involved, and in such instances its nice to know you have a reliable trading partner stocking the shelves…or not.

    Thus, I propose that most of the 11 TPP countries wanted a way out of this TPP, especially after DJT pull America out of that potential deal.
    So, the Eleven TPP leaders asked Trudeau to renege on the agreement and thus the TPP falls away… And that way, the other ten countries can save face and say to each other, we’ll get back to you on that TPP agreement in the future.

      If these leaders are so shallow and so cowardly and spineless that they can’t just be forthright, and have to resort to such convoluted idiocy in order to ‘save face’, then they deserve whatever misfortune befalls them as the whole globalist cabal is brought down.

    SD thank you for this thread, and the commenters. It is really an eye-owner for me. I had not done any in-depth research on TPP beyond the trade aspect of it, which is a minimal portion.

    If I understand it correctly now, the hidden aspects of it and the TPP-11 are horrific, true destruction of the sovereignty of the participating nations! Thank God for PDJT and his superb clear-eyed cabinet pulling us out and stearing us far away from the devastation it will cause the willing participant nations – their countries won’t be recognizable. An Asian-Pacific version of the EU. And we all have watched the devastating results of that just from the open borders, immigration, “laborers” perspective.

    PDJT’s earlier speech at this conference could not have been more applicable!!! Perhaps that resulted in beta-boy Justin having second thoughts, which for the sake of our northern friends, would be a good thing.

    It’s going to be interesting to watch, that’s for sure!

    Ha! Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull would have been in a predicament due to Canada’s actions lol. He would have been depending on that deal to showboat and distract from the troubles at home. His government is very likely unconstitutional due to the dual citizenship farce of a large number of MPs. I wonder if any TPP signed now would be subjected to legal challenges at some point.
    How can the Governor-General assent to any law made by a parliament so compromised?

    An audit is now essential:

    Turnbull government MP Nola Marino may have acquired Italian citizenship through marriage, in what would represent a new twist in the eligibility crisis that has engulfed the federal Parliament.

    Add her to the list. Six MPs gone already, and more to follow:…
    The government is bracing for an official ruling on Liberal backbencher and former tennis champion John Alexander that could trigger a referral to the High Court or an immediate resignation if British authorities declare him to be one of their citizens.

    With Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce out of parliament while he fights a December 2 by-election, the nation is heading towards a hung parliament for a crucial ­period when the Coalition could hold only 74 of 150 seats.

            Sorry, it was asked and answered. Then it was ignored.
            liddle barry dunham shared a redacted COLB online. Withing minutes, it was proven false, fake, and fraudulent.
            Nobody cared.
            The number was out of sequence, the hospital name was wrong, and in ’60 and ’61 nobody in this country used the word caucasian on a birth certificate.

            But that’s not the best part.
            Part 1 When liddle barry soetoro returned to the STATE of Hawaii as a teenager, his legal guardian, gramma dunham didn’t file the one form necessary to reclaim his citizenship.
            (btw it’s still federal law, and my nephew got his form filed as his mother and he returned to the US in 1976) so barry went to school in HI as a foreign student.

            Part 2 When lil barack obama jr travelled to pock-ee-ston, as a sitting SENATOR, to visit family, he used a PAKISTAN passport issued to him as a citizen of pakistan. and and and, pak was intredicted from travel by US citizens that year.

            All of this is ignored, but remember Sheriff Joe and I are still going on about birth certificates.

    “The Australian side are understood to be angered over the development, ”


    If the Turnbull administration is ‘angry’, and letting it show, then they needed the deal too much. Which begs the question, what was in it for Turnbull? He certainly doesn’t care about the people of Australia any more than any of the other criminal globalists running most of the Western nations of the world.

    Shine a spotlight on Turnbull, find out what he lost today.


    “…which was seen as deeply embarrassing for Vietnam as the host country.”



    It wasn’t Vietnam’s fault, Vietnam had nothing to do with it. Based on what has been reported, the ONLY people who ought to be embarrassed is Justina & Chrystia.


    “The TPP11 leaders, all seated around a table, were left fuming after Canada failed to attend and were told the nation had asked for last minute exemptions to the deal.”


    Again, why fuming?

    If there’s no deal, then there’s no deal, and we move on to something else. It would be annoying to have wasted one’s time, but I would be laughing at the position Justina and Chrystia put themselves in, I wouldn’t be ‘fuming’… UNLESS I had a lot more personally invested in the outcome than I should have.

    Which begs the question… how much $$$ were these criminals intended to pocket for themselves as a result of this multilateral treason?

    That is where the real focus should be.
