Out of Options: Canadian Trade Delegation Begins Lobbying Auto Manufacturers For Help…

Good news within a strenuously spun Reuters article. Don’t get lost looking at the granules; apparently all of the prior Canadian strategy against President Trump has failed.

For well over a year Justin from Canada and Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland were confident they could leverage the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, purchased DC politicians and ideological allies against President Trump in NAFTA negotiations. The result? Fail, fail and more fail.

Running out of options, Canada now attempts to save their NAFTA construct by turning to the executives within the auto industry:

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s trade minister last week met senior officials from General Motors Co and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV in Detroit, as Ottawa takes its lobbying effort directly to the Big Three carmakers to avert potential U.S. auto tariffs.

The Liberal government is relying on industry partners to press Canada’s cause in the White House and elsewhere, using their influence to protect Canadian interests, sources with direct knowledge of the discussions told Reuters.

[…] The auto industry, Canada’s biggest exporter, represents about 500,000 direct and indirect jobs and contributes C$80 billion ($60.1 billion) a year to the economy.

“Instead of us galloping all over the United States talking to everybody, it’s really focused right now on the automobile manufacturers, the automobile suppliers,” said one source, who requested anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation.

The Canadian message was “now is the time to speak up, now is the time to exercise whatever influence you might be able to bring to bear,” added the source. (read more)

Or put another way…. “Halp”!

Each sequential step in the Trump trade strategy is designed to head-off any counter position by positioning individual best-interests ahead of any defensive group formation.

The Canadian and Mexican economy (due to NAFTA) cannot survive without importing cheap durable goods from China to use in their assembly-based economies, and then trans-ship into the U.S market. However, the U.S. economy can survive, it can actually expand BIGLY, without accepting trans-shipped assembled goods from Mexico and Canada

Put simply, without NAFTA, the assembly processes just moves INTO the U.S because the market *is* the United States. We are the $20 trillion customer. We hold the leverage.

Example:

NOTE: “Donnelly said in his opening remarks that there was already a rise in product being diverted to Canada in recent years and signs of even more since the U.S. tariffs began this year.”..

This is evidence of multinationals exploiting the NAFTA loophole to avoid U.S. tariffs. This fatal flaw is at the very heart of the issue within the U.S. trade policy inside NAFTA. As long as Mexico and Canada remain gateways for foreign good assembly and shipment into the U.S. there will never be a way for the U.S. to demand fair and reciprocal trade.

Canada knows their decades-long designed economic position as shipment/assembly trade-brokers is the central issue is the heart of the confrontation with USTR Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Ross and President Trump. As multinational corporations seek to avoid Trump tariffs they only exacerbate the issue.

If Canada and Mexico don’t try to stop their duplicitous NAFTA benefit scheme, they will end up with even bigger trade surpluses and become even bigger targets for President Trump. In essence, the reason for Canada and Mexico being subject to even more encompassing Trump tariffs’ grows.

If Canada and Mexico do nothing to stop this influx; Trump will levy more than just steel and aluminum tariffs; he’ll likely tax their auto-sector.

As a consequence Canada moves do back-down Red Dragon:

The Canadian government is preparing new measures to prevent a potential flood of steel imports from global producers seeking to avoid U.S. tariffs, according to people familiar with the plans. The Canadian dollar weakened and shares in Stelco Holdings Inc. soared.

The measures are said to be a combination of quotas and tariffs aimed at certain countries including China, said the people, asking not to be identified because the matter isn’t public. The moves follow similar “safeguard” measures being considered by the European Union aimed at warding off steel that might otherwise have been sent to the U.S. It comes alongside Canadian counter-tariffs on U.S. steel, aluminum and other products set to kick in on July 1.

The bottom line is U.S. market access is what all production countries need for their goods and the sustainability of their economies.

        It won’t matter either way, soon enough. I predicted when Trump won that there would not be a Democrat Party in 5-10 years. Because speaking as a former Democrat, Trump is sucking up the working class vote. The DNC is increasingly and very visibly becoming a mess of contradictions and hypocrisy and people are noticing it. The DNC is imploding. It won’t matter if McCain is around or not because I think the losing is going to end up being a lot worse for the Democrats than people realize.

            That’s great, but he can’t just utter a decree, he needs to physically make it happen. For example, he could ban people from Honduras, but that wouldn’t stop Hondurans from trying to get across the border, along with several million others every year.

          AMLO might try to cause chaos, but in the end his economy hinges on us. 80% of their $400B in exports is to the US. Meanwhile, only 15% of our total $1.57T or $250B in exports goes to Mexico. He will heal very quickly…or be violently overthrown. We also provide over $300M in aid, mostly in military support for combating the violence of the drug war. There are already vast swaths of the country that are no go zones. Pulling that aid would accelerate the losses, AMLO is well aware of this.

      I contend there is no such thing as socialism. It is more benevolent dictatorship of the elite. Socialism implies equality to some level, while the Chinese model of the benevolent dictatorship allocates just enough to subsist and just enough to reward good behavior, while the “income gap grows” in favor of the ruling elites. The 8 years of Obamanomics is a prime example that the democrats see that as the future.

                  While Chinese investors spent the last decade buying up natural resources across Africa, this year they’ve begun an unprecedented shopping spree in Brazil. In less than 12 months, Chinese investment has jumped by orders of magnitude — from a registered $82 million in 2009 to more than $25 billion in planned projects reported so far this year.

    The MSM and liberal left are screaming “LOOK, THE STOCK MARKET IS GOING DOWN!!!” as if this was unexpected. Trump said it: “There may be some pain at first, but it will get a lot better soon…” Of course there will be some pain in the market as tariffs kick in, but, what will happen in short order is companies with US-based production and supply chains will KICK ASS, as US-based multi-nationals who have been exploiting our insane trade policies choke on their imported materials and products being priced out. They are already scrambling to onshore and repatriate, and as these efforts mature into the earnings stream, their stocks will rebound as well.
    As for taking production out of the US to local markets, Trump will introduce policies that will essentially give those companies a choice: make it here, or watch your entire company get charged penalties for every dollar of capacity offshored. It is time to play HARDBALL. Even Bill Priestap, of FBI infamy, has been preaching this all has needed to be attended to for decades, but NO ONE WAS LISTENING. China has been eating our breakfast and lunch, and was getting ready to tuck in for dinner and a digestif when Trump knocked the table over.This is in our national interest.

      Why should they, when Canada is so sweetly socialistic that the former desert dwellers can be paid without having to work at all?

      This is what WE in USA are already fighting here against ILLEGAL uninvited Aliens.

      But Canada is still happily paying the dole, and spouting PC bullshite, for their LEGAL invited alien invasions, and the laws that allow it are still on your books and NOT even being protested, much less contested.

      Hardworking Canadians actually protesting against their Canadian tax dollars supporting those “poor refugee (invited) aliens” would not be allowed in Canada, NEVER! not politically correct, utterly zenophobic and racist! I am sure you understand the PC.

      I do not doubt that hardworking but PC-Socialist-chained Canadians will have to sell their homes, cars and all they own once they lose their jobs, just to continue paying for alien “refugees” who can live comfortably without jobs up there.

      I do not expect there will be much of an alien/”worst immigrant sorts Trudeau brought in” exodus because of jobs, since they hardly have to work and can live well in Canada on the socialistic PC protected dole.

      [BTW, Lynn, good work giving your “LEGAL IMMIGRANT Islamic REFUGEES” (which I call “desert dwellers” in a totally unPC fashion) your completely PC round-about description of “worst immigrant sorts Trudeau brought in.” ]

      Break the PC-language-chains first: then Canada has just begun to solve its problems. You cannot fight against that which you cannot even mention, much less accurately define.

      If anything, it will be the “good Canadians” sneaking across hoping for a job.

      Jobs?That is what the good Canadians do to support their invited freeloader aliens.

        ________________

        I thought it was all ball-bearings these days.

        No wait… that was Chevy Chase in Fletch.

        If it’s all baloney, then I foresee Trump Tariffs on baloney in Canadia’s near future.

        No baloney for you!

    I believe PDJT has a vision, and phase 1 is to restore justice and our Republic to its constitutional roots, clean up the swamp and reorg the gov so it operates and serves us efficiently and cost effectively. Will be done ahead of schedule, under budget and before the 1st term ends.

    Phase 1 will allow PDJT and the wolverines to accomplish Phase 2, which is to completely upgrade The United States of America, from top to bottom and from sea to shining sea, leaving the USA with efficient and modern airports, roads, railways, mass transit, etc. When he leaves office 2in 2024.

    I am reposting this, because it is a clear indication that all the obfuscation is just a ploy to mislead the US electorate and promoted by the fake news. China, Canada, Mexico know.

    This is an article about the Chinese businesses that will be affected by the US tariffs, particularly note in the quote below, how they intend on coping, exposing again the flaws of NAFTA and NAFTA-type trade agreements.

    “Exporters in China’s manufacturing heartland brace for impact of US tariffs”

    “Export-oriented businesses in China’s manufacturing heartland Guangdong say they are bracing for pain after the United States escalated trade tensions with the country.
    With Washington due to start imposing 25 per cent tariffs on the first batch of Chinese products next week, some exporters are worried that it could erode their price advantage, and that orders from their US clients will dry up, according to manufacturers and analysts.
    Those who will be hit directly by the duties are scrambling to find ways to manage the impact, including raising prices for US buyers, shipping products to another country before sending them to the US, and even relocating operations to other countries such as India, Vietnam and Mexico, they said.”

      Wow.
      So they are openly admitting to trying to slip in through the back door to the US Market, by going through other countries…taking advantage of the Trade Agreements that we have with those other countries.

      But then, commies have no shame.

      With for all their concern for ‘saving face’…you’d think that their sense of Honor would prevent them from openly conspiring to cheat and committing underhanded business maneuvers.

      Perhaps ‘failure to defeat Americans’ is a worse offense and would result in more loss-of-face, than getting caught at cheating.

      Another option to consider would be to open plants in the US but that means they can’t use slave labor to operate them. Trading with countries that treat their citizens like slaves is never a good idea. Not to mention quality control is what they define it at the moment.

      Now Stephen Harper, the x-Prime Minister of Canada is gentleman who is also, an economist, entrepreneur, and a politician. At least Harper and Trump will be able to speak the same language. And hopefully, they will be able to reach a fair trade agreement between America and Canada…
      …. And BTY, it is a Canadian Liberal/Fake media, with nothing but spreading lies in Canada about POTUS Trump..

      I heard someone recently saying that the Canadian current government needs to listen to trade experts from the former government.

      Looks as if they did.

    France and Canada should never have elected pretty young gentlemen. They don’t exactly look to be battle hardened. They’re probably just puppets. How could Trudeau and Macron possibly match wits with PDJT on any issue let alone trade? Leading their respective countries might be a touch out of their league.

    Canada thinks they can leverage American CEOs to work against American interests, and for Canadian interests?
    What does that tell you about the caliber of the “top” Americans who supposedly have American’s best interests at heart?
    And they wonder how we Deplorables deigned to elect such a Vulgarian as President.
    Phooey

    While reading the Rueter’s article cited by Sundance I came across this tidbit…

    Canadian Equalization Payents:

    Equalization is a federal program that transfers federal funds to provinces with below average capacities to raise revenues. Provinces with stronger economies, and with high income households and businesses, raise more revenue for any given tax rate than provinces with lower incomes.

    In other words…the Canadian Provinces will be at each others throats

    “Executives of General Motors and Fiat Chrysler”

    Interestingly, the same folks who benefited from Obama’s largesse when he tossed the nation’s bankruptcy laws into the toilet in a classic Obama “Lenny, Think of all the voters!” maneuver, [Bill Murray, from the scene inside the Mayor’s office in the movie “Ghostbusters”]

    Mr Trump has mentioned his willingness to negotiate separate deals with Mexico and Canada. Who will get the best deal? Where does America stand to gain the most? Are there alternatives? How can they find the correct answer? What will happen if they get it wrong?

    To my American friends, apologies from Canada for the idiots representing this country, and their unqualified opinion no and silly gender SJW issues. We have a chance to fix this in 2019 election. Until then, please realize that they do not represent the majority of Canadians, just mostly Quebec, the spoiled child of confederation. Trudeau is an unqualified river rafting drama teacher, who has never had to work for a living, or be responsible for anyone.
    Real leadership would negotiate a deal. Trudy and Freeland are the epitome of the Peter Principle!

    The Canadians are starting to back off, it appears. and are getting desperate and will be looking for a deal that they would have accepted initially. If I know Trump from his book, “The Art of the Deal”, They will be presented with a deal that is not quite as good for them as the original proposal, and even better for the U.S. And this goes for any deal that Trump does.It starts out with an offer you can’t refuse. If all these people were smart, they would talk and deal with Trump immediately because he won’t back down. When will they learn?
