The North American Leaders Summit is one of the first major opportunities for Prime Minister Trudeau -- a proud feminist -- to turn words into action and put his vision of a feminist foreign policy into practice.

Now we have two reasons to be skeptical about Mexico's soda tax effectiveness: very little incentive to substitute to other drinks and not much pass through to consumers. Based on that we can expect the Mexican tax to be a bust both on the consumer's pocketbook and health.

The Hard Truths for Canada About the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Carlo Dade | Posted 10.05.2016 | Canada Business
Carlo Dade

The bottom line with the Trans-Pacific Partnership for Canada is that it really doesn't have a choice about whether or not to join.

Carlo Dade

Justin Trudeau's speech on the importance of North America on Monday echoed most of the current wisdom on Canada's standing in North America -- we're in trouble and the issue needs some serious attention. The idea for a cabinet level committee on the U.S. relationship proposed by Trudeau is good, but in reality it would have to be a committee on North America, which means including Mexico.
