WASHINGTON — A Canadian MP has told a Washington audience that the American proposal for a sunset clause in a renegotiated NAFTA deal is stupid.
“This idea of a five-year sunset clause is absolutely crazy,” Wayne Easter said. “I’ll call it as it is: it’s a stupid idea.”
Speaking at an event organized by the Canadian American Business Council, during a visit to Washington by a delegation of Canadian parliamentarians, the former dairy farmer also dismissed U.S. demands for an end to Canada’s supply management policy for dairy products.
