    Yet they're the ones whining about competitive disadvantage for jobs as a result of their overwhelming unionism. Are they making this up? Bluffing?

    Why would Canada end binding trade agreements. It's Trump that wants a better deal.

    What is wrong with Canada asking for a better position?

    What's wrong with it is that they want the U.S. to do something that is not working for Canada. Canada is admitting that its tolerance of union coercion is putting it at a competitive disadvantage with the U.S. for jobs. What Canada should do is what's working, not ask others to do what's not working.

    LOL. You can always identify the partisan infants when they group people into extremely simplistic partisan buckets based on liking or not liking what they say. Because you don't agree with me, Trump becomes "my boy" in your mind. That's funny, idiotic though. Trump stole the election by saying NAFTA was unfair, because that's all it took to steal tons of union household votes. Whether he believes that or not is irrelevant at this point. All he had to do was utter the words and he took the White House. That's how betrayed unionists have felt by the Clinton brand over the years.

    Canada pulling this Right To Work stunt is an attempt to "out" him as actually being anti-union less than a year after he won over so many union households and took the White House. I can respect Canada's political stunt, but I have to say, it is transparent.

    That's a very union-flattering way to say it (the bold). The way I would say it is that Canada's abdication of its power to labor cartels puts the country at an unfair disadvantage in retaining jobs.

    I mean who in Canada's government let delusional unionists do the country's NAFTA negotiating for it, eh?
    Canada does not have that right since those are state laws and not federal. Canada shows they do not want to be our friend. They are showing they are friends to democrats only

    Cabnada does not have a say in our laws. Showing they are controlled by unions will only hurt them with the US

    In theory repealing Taft-Hartley would bring back closed shops and supersede state level Right To Work laws. Canada can ask the US Government to do whatever Canada feels like asking the US Government to do.

    What I find strange is why Canada's overall economic interests are left up to unionists to articlate, as if Big Labor and Canadian government were one and the same. Maybe they are.

    That would take away the peoples right to choice. But then choice only matters to democrats when it includes killing a baby. Canada has no right to demand what laws we have. Let Canada take care of it's own
