"Free" trade agreement
« on: October 01 2018, 12:03:18 PM »
New deal doesn't seem to help us much with car parts at  the border from the  docs I read this morning.
Duties ( which were never an issue on car parts) don't kick in till $140 BUT we will get taxed on anything over $40 ( old limit was $20 )

Well if it holds- the exchange rate has improved by about a penny- that might help

Free Trade has just helped to destroy the middle class!  This province is a prime example.  A lot of industry has left.  Before NAFTA every province had to have it's own brewery, after it wasn't needed.  We saw 3 big breweries leave with Labatt's being the biggest.  We lost petro industries and much more.  And nothing replaced the wages that these companies were paying!
I look at the buying power my Dad had and mine is no where near!
