Agreement Reached With Mexico
A memoir published by Stephen Schwarzman, CEO and founder of US LBO specialist The Blackstone Group, revealed that he had encouraged Justin Trudeau to recognize the protected milk market in the USMCA negotiations. Schwarzman said Mr. Trudeau feared a recession would affect his government`s prospects in Canada`s 2019 general election. The executive, which had been retained by Trump, was also invited in January 2017 to address the Liberal cabinet at a retreat in Calgary if the cabinet was not protected by its Privy Council officials. When the negotiations ended on October 1, 2018, Mr. Trudeau, at a behind-the-scenes meeting at the United Nations in New York, sacrificed the dairy industry to save the media industry and the auto exception. Chrystia Freeland, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Trinity-Spadina, riding in downtown Toronto and including many contributors to the CBC and The Globe and Mail as well as the Toronto Star and the Toronto Sun, maps “Canadian culture” directly on the media industry. In an article on the election cycle, Robert Fife received no comment from parties other than the Liberal Party.  On March 13, 2020, the House of Commons passed The USMCA Implementation Act C-4 before being exposed for 6 weeks due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Due to “exceptional circumstances,” the third and final reading of the act was passed in the absence of a roll call vote, as part of an omnibus adjournment motion that was unanimously adopted by all members present.
 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was not present because he was at home in self-isolation after his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for a covid-19 infection. On the same day, the Senate passed the first, second and third readings of the recorded voiceless legislation, and Governor General Julie Payette signed it shortly thereafter and concluded that Canada would ratify the legislation.    In April 2018, the EU and Mexico reached an “agreement in principle” on the trade side of a modernised global agreement between the EU and Mexico. The new agreement reaffirms both existing EU and Mexican intellectual property laws. Both the EU and Mexico agreed that the trade agreement between them must support existing environmental laws and not reduce or water them down. The agreement prohibits both sides from pursuing “a race to the bottom.” They must therefore not unduly encourage trade and investment: the trade agreement is part of the new, wider global agreement between the EU and Mexico, which will strengthen cooperation and regular high-level meetings between Mexico and the EU in the areas of human rights, security and justice. In addition to the construction of the existing NAFTA, merged with elements of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the new USMCA, which has just been adopted by the U.S. Congress, also includes elements of the “Beyond the Border” agreement signed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and former President Barack Obama, including the “Single Window” initiative and the consolidation of the Regulatory Cooperation Council in Chapter 28 of the new agreement.  This will give the EU more opportunities to discuss human rights with Mexico than we do today.
