Trudeau Needs To Stand Up To 'Good Friend' Mexico

Canada Mexico Chris Wattie / Reuters

I have made no secret of my respect for our new prime minister, especially after the disdain I held for his predecessor. That's why it can be tough at times to watch -- as good Canadian jobs are lost to Mexico, a place of horrible human rights abuses -- while Justin Trudeau publicly talks about being such good friends with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. In the days ahead of the summit, U.S. President Barack Obama's White House was talking up a green energy deal with Mexico and describing North America as a "single unit."
