LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Free trade deal the least of our concerns
Independent & Free Press (Georgetown, ON), 7 Jun 2006, p. 6

Full Text

Dear editor, The letter from Cammie Pierce in the May 31 issue of this paper is pure fear-mongering (Free trade deal with Korea is bad for Canada). The truth is that it will soon make no difference how many Canadian manufacturing jobs go overseas, or go south, or how large our trade deficit is with the nations in question. If we stick with our government's policies for a long enough time, there will be nobody left in Canada with a job that pays enough to purchase these imported products and therefore, the problem will be solved. Then, Cammie, the 25 cent per pound wood pulp sales to Korea (which you mocked) versus zero automobile imports, will create a trade surplus of a couple of thousand bucks a year, at least. I hope I've put your mind at rest. Darrel MacCrae, Georgetown
