The big question now is will Canada follow before the deadline of the end of August?
Given the expertise we displayed so far in the negotiation, it is impossible to tell. If they do not, then tariffs on automobiles appears to be the price for their intransigence. If yes, what will Mexico and the US agree to do that they don’t want to do?
I think naive might be a better word. Did the Canadian negotiators really think that they could get what they wanted from the United States. Maybe they did, but anyone experienced in negotiation would have suggested it was impossible.
Aside from letting Mexico lead the way without Canada.
Canada will eventually accept what they are given.
Virtue signalling will not have much effect at the economic bargaining table. The prime minister has an election on the horizon and losing the auto sector will matter. Unions like their jobs better than ideology.
And they have two days to decide.
You could not do it worse.
