Re: Time for internal Canadian free trade (The News, July 16).
Anyone vaguely familiar with the Frontier Centre for Public Policy (FCPP) is correct to be suspicious of their proposal for internal Canadian free trade.
Given the flight of manufacturing caused by the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which included Mexico we will not easily be fooled again by the supposed benefits of the latest versions of similar trade agreements like the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Europe and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
Dr. Robert Murray and Justin Bedi are selling us a bottle of snake oil when they claim an interest and a hope that "Canadians get the national economic benefits and opportunities they deserve."
