It's not just something happening. It's also something that happened many years ago. Yes, it's the same issue.
It's regarding, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The renegotiation began Wednesday, October 11th, 2017.
Here's a link to an article by macleans.ca entitled, Does Canada have leverage in the NAFTA renegotiation? : http://www.macleans.ca/economy/does-canada-have-leverage-in-the-nafta-renegotiation/.
Hopefully, you clicked on the article link, and read it. If not, you may want to see this part of the article that I copied/pasted to show you:
OTTAWA – With NAFTA negotiations set to begin Wednesday, it’s tempting to think of Canada as the proverbial 90-pound weakling about to get a faceful of sand kicked up by the body-building, muscle-flexing behemoth who lives next door.
The United States, after all, is a huge, self-sufficient market that doesn’t really need free trade with Canada and Mexico to thrive economically.
Canada, by contrast, is a tiny market heavily dependent on trade, especially with the U.S., for its economic well-being.
Hence, conventional wisdom suggests, Canada needs the North American Free Trade Agreement more than the U.S. needs it. And that puts Canada at the U.S.’s mercy when it comes to the renegotiation.
Then again, maybe not.
Indeed, some trade experts say Canada has a lot more leverage going into the talks than anyone, including U.S. President Donald Trump, may think. And they’re predicting more of a David and Goliath scenario, where the little guy with the sling shot could best the giant — or at least walk away unscathed.
This article seems to tell me that Canada will be hurt by the renegotiation happening. After all, it talks about Canada needing US's mercy... just as you read.
Does this seem right to me? Absolutely, NOT!
Well, many people think that the original NAFTA helped Canada. In some ways, it may have. But, in other ways, it did NOT.
Why am I thinking this? Well, I'll discuss it, soon.
When I discuss it, you'll hear truth. Especially, since we have needs. And, poor people need to be helped.
Thinking about the need to help people, made me think of Acts 20:36, "And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing."
I realize that I will never stop praying about this. After all, knowing there isn't any charity/love, we do not do well.
After all, we need to give of ourselves.
Please, join me in prayer.
If you do, God will bless you.
Until next time...
