Thread Name: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
Subject: RE: Quebec City Protest - Part 2
Free trade my ass !!! Yesterday, the US included Maritime Canada in it's call for tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber, which are unwarranted as far as the Maritimes go. This means mill closures, lost jobs, and, for some, loss of the family land. Apparently, free trade doesn't mean fair trade.
