One very specific advantage of the new CPTTP:

Quote:
If Canada is part of the agreement when it first comes into force, he said, beef and pork exporters will have "the first crack" at using their preferential market access to displace U.S. exports — which will be more expensive because they'll face a higher tariff.

While Canadian beef producers exporting to Japan can expect a reduction in tariffs, U.S. beef exporters will still be subject to 38.5 per cent tariffs. More than 30 per cent of Japan's beef imports come from the U.S., while Canada supplies just 2 per cent.

With CPTPP, there's a lot of room for Canada to take sales away from the U.S.
The pressure is on for Senate to pass a massive Asia-Pacific trade deal quickly

"The rush is because there is huge benefit to us joining the agreement. The dollar and cents stuff is significant. This isn't theoretical. It's taking market share out of the pockets of the Americans. It simply doesn't get any better for us on the trade front," Dade said in an interview with CBC News. "We want to start clocking benefits."

I think you must have been asleep for the last year or so. It totally escaped your notice that you're the neighbour that sucker punched first. Typical American.

The U.S. was the country who reneged on the TPP agreement it signed and chose to lose the advantages it gave. Blame Trump, not Canada.

Canada ratifies CPTPP trade deal:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...a-close-behind

Quote:
Japan, Mexico, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada have now ratified it, and Australia’s trade minister said this week he’s on the brink of doing so. The deal will be provisionally enacted 60 days after it’s ratified by six countries.

Member nations were pushing to do so by Nov. 1, which would allow the pact to kick in Dec. 31 with an initial tariff cut followed by a second round just one day later, the start of the new year.

Yay!

This should be beneficial for Canada and Mexico farmers and businesses too.

"Australian farmers and businesses will particularly benefit from new high-quality free trade agreements with Canada and Mexico, our first ever with these two of the world's top 20 economies."
