Trump has clearly stated that NAFTA is a "Bad Deal" for the U.S. Well I also think that it is a bad deal for the Canadian Consumer. If we take a look at what some of the points are that Trump wants to renegociate we can see how it will benefit the Canadian consumer...
The U.S. publishes an annual list of complaints about trade practices in other countries.
A marketing board is an organization created by many producers to try to market their product and increase consumption and thus prices. We have 120 marketing boards in this Canada. Prices for most board regulated products have increased excessively in Canada compared to the rest of the world—in fact prices in Canada are almost three times as high as other countries. Interesting to note that a family pays less for three liters of pop/soda than for three liners of milk - sad state of affairs!
Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the free world for alcoholic beverages. The price of a bottle of Budweiser in Ontario (Beer Store) is $1.75. In the U.S. (Safeway) it's $0.56. Smirnoff Vodka Ontario (LCBO) $57.00 U.S. (Safeway) $9.95.
Canadians are not allowed any Duty Free purchases unless they are out of country for more than 24 hours. If more than 24 hours but less than 48 hours $200. CDN but no alcohol. After 48 hours $800. CDN ($608. U.S.) one bottle allowed.
Don't believe this one take a look at your TV, Internet and Phone bills!
I am a concerned Canadian that is fed up seeing companies and people leave Canada due to the high cost of doing business and living.
