    Bad-ish for the US maybe.

    Canada? China would get a direct route for grain, we would get bigger HDTV's for cheaper.

    Oil? We wouldn't have to sell it to the US, which then the US would sell to China.

    Under free trade, the nation that is on top tends to lose. But then again, its pretty much inevitable that the globalists will take things over (no such thing as one of 196 nations, or 196 differently taxable regimes) In general though, all nations get raised up a bit. Under Donald Trump, they don't want "equality" for the world, because it means that the US has to play on an equal playing field (Each $100 owed means 1,000 pounds of delivered wheat, and Minecraft is very unlikely to be worth $2,500,000,000.00)

    BTW: The mental image I have of Donald Trump is hovering over a sticky note labelled "Fired" covering the top of the big red button that launches nukes.

    It will also make it tougher for traders to arbitrage.

    I'm more reserved about laws from other countries being sneaked into Canadian legal system through the backdoor as a trade deal than actual laws.

    BTW ZenOps, China isn't part of this deal. There may be proxies countries (mainly Malaysia and Singapore) in the 12 nation block that can be a middle man but China won't benefit from this directly.

    Vietnam, I guess I need to go over there before the old country totally disappears as it modernizes.

    This is gonna show how ignorant I am, but why couldn't we just sell direct to China to begin with? Tariff's that the US doesn't face or something?

    Ha ha! Head of the dairy farmers of Canada just expressed support for the TPP on TV. Said the compensation is fair, dairy farmers will have other opportunities such as pork and said that it is good for farmers and Canada.

    This was just after Mulclair was on going on and on about 20000 dairy farmer jobs.

    What an idiot.

    There is the small problem of every smelly hippy and native band between us and our 3 oceans protesting any pipeline we attempt to build , expand, or reroute.

    Trades deals like this are going to bring a lot of new opportunities and job creation, plus reduce living costs for most Canadians at the same time.

    Trump must be having a heart attack right now, this is like his worst nightmare come true!



    So what are the odds that we could have this thread renamed to something that isn't totally retarded... like "The Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement"
    So... you clean up on meg today or what?

    Price of parmiganio reggiano needs to come down. Therefore I support tpp and anything else that helps break the dairy cartel.

    You said would, article says could. Big difference.

    If they can't be competitive without protectionism then that's just the way the cookie crumbles. We're not competitive with $30 oil prices, lost a lot of jobs here. Same shit.
