Democracy is a factor that points to Racism in this region.
The sooner we say we have a problem with racism in Canada, the sooner we can work out problems of racism in Canada.
We have racism in Canada!

What is going on with the trading agreement between these three countries?
It seems like two friends are standing up to a bully.
The Canadian Media are running lead stories that talk dumb to the reader.
With so much at stake, the economy of so much of the world and the specific trade arrangement of the United States, Canada and Mexico…
Automotive industry in all three countries like the present deal.
It seems Mexico puts together the labor intensive parts.
But the states want more of this kind of work done at home.
For political reasons not too clear, Canada seems to be siding with the Mexicans as the negotiations begin to move into high gear.
Canada promises a win-win-win.

Fair trade for all may seem like a contradiction but work based on the NAFTA AGREEMENT will be the backbone of this round of negotiations.
Good luck to the three countries trying to work things out!
