OK, some good news from Donald Franciszek Tusk, the President of the European Council:
As President Tusk’s people explain:
A BZ to the officials in Canada’s Trade service who negotiated this deal, many years ago, when Stephen Harper was prime minister, and who played a little “brinksmanship” in the past few days and, finally, under Prime Minister Trudeau, brought the deal home.
But, this is no time for anyone to rest on their laurels. Canada needs to also “bring home” the TPP, no matter what one of the third rate candidates the US is about elect to be the “leader” of the free world says or does; and we need to “bring home” free(er) trade deals with Britain, China and India and with other Asian partners like the Philippines.
