In recent days, our minister of industry, James Moore, announced he is going to take steps to stop the Canadian Trade barrier.
The wording is so ironic. Here is our prime minister, Stephen Harper, touring the world to negotiate free trade; glamourizing free trade with Korea in Langley, B.C. Why did Moore not use plain English – “will create free trade in Canada”?
Using those kind of words will upset Quebec City holding patronage guaranteed rights to provide, for example, 40 per cent of the Canadian dairy products and eggs. Sounds encouraging, but as long as Quebec City holds the power, nothing will happen – all words to make one feel good.
