Premier Doug Ford Rips Trudeau, Says PM “Has Failed To Represent This Country”

“Where he has failed, we have a powerhouse team sitting at that table of premiers that are going to jump up and fill that gap,” says Ford.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford slammed Justin Trudeau on Twitter recently, in remarks that take on even more relevance considering that the US has imposed even more ‘Buy America’ restrictions that will impact Canada.

“Justin Trudeau has failed to represent this country, to represent the manufacturers of this nation and where he has failed, we have a powerhouse team sitting at that table of premiers that are going to jump up and fill that gap.”

Ford directly slammed Trudeau for failing to fight back against the US policy:

“Yesterday 550 workers in Thunder Bay and 90 more in Quebec lost their jobs because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has failed to stand up to the Buy America policy. (1/3)”

Since Ford’s Tweets, Trudeau has been criticized further, as the US is imposing new ‘Buy America’ restrictions, which are expected to hurt Canada’s steel industry and manufacturers:

“The new restrictions mean that any product designated as ‘Made in America’ must have 75% US components. Previously, that number was 50%.

Additional rules now require that any public contract must use 95% US Steel and US Iron.”

As I’ve said before, Justin Trudeau talks a big game about ‘standing up to the US,’ yet when the actual details of the deals are released, it turns out that he rolled over and got nothing of substance for our nation.

How is it that in the entire new NAFTA agreement, the Trudeau government didn’t manage to secure an exemption for Canada from ‘Buy America’ provisions?

It’s a disgraceful failure, and Ford is right to be calling it out.
