I figure it will take a year. Purely a guess, some give him 6 months. Already some Trump supporters are regretting their choice.

Also, for us, it's easy to sit by the sidelines hoping it won't affect us too much. ( wishful thinking ) My concerns are no where near the concerns the majority of people in the US have, who are VERY concerned since it affects them directly.
If you talk about the arrogant media people, the intolerant liberals, hypocritical Meryle Streep and her Hollywood, and greedy corporations who reduce cost at any cost, yes, they should be worried. American people will be just fine.

And it will have close to zero impact on Canada. America will always be our loving papa

Whatever they do I hope the ability for a USA citizen to try to find a job in Canada without a business having to prove that they can't fill the job with a Canadian citizen first stays in place. In Canada that law does exist but USA citizens are exempt from it because of NAFTA. Really the only good thing about I think as the USA has really gotten screwed over on the Mexican side of the deal.


I'd love to see NAFTA exist between the USA, Canada, and a EU-free United Kingdom with Mexico kicked out of it.

I'd like to see more solid evidence/statistics and analysis rather that rhetoric before I was convinced that Canada and the U.S. would be better off without Mexico in NAFTA.

For example:

Quote:
"Without NAFTA, large segments of the U.S. automotive industry would have moved to other low-wage countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, or South America," CAR said.
Quote:
According to the most recent data, more than 40% of the components in the average car manufactured in Mexico last year came from the U.S. For so-called Canadian-made cars, the ratio is about 25%
Quote:
"For example, overall U.S.-Mexico trade data show that, on average, a 10% increase in employment at a Mexican affiliate operation leads to a 1.3% increase in U.S. employment, a 1.7% increase in U.S. exports, and a 4.1% increase in U.S. R&D spending."

Since the U.S. economy is so much larger than Mexico's, those small percentages add up to large numbers of real jobs. If a large company with more than 40,000 employees in the U.S. were to expand its small, 5,000-person plant in Mexico by 10%, that would make the Mexican plant expand to 5,500 people.

But the knock-on effect of that ratio means that company would likely also add 500 new jobs in the U.S., too.
NAFTA's demise would cost U.S. auto industry 30,000 jobs, think-tank says - Business - CBC News

The US is Canada's biggest trading partner and the two countries are very closely tied. A Trump presidency could very well have a significant impact here

US / Canada situation is a lot different than US / Mexico. Mexico has a tremendous COL advantage with the USA, Canada does not. There has never been many jobs leaving the USA for Canada. USA looses few jobs and gets lots of energy.

Trump will turn on Canada, warns former Mexican congressman - Politics - CBC News

The trouble with renegotiating NAFTA while Trump is President is that facts don't matter to him. I think it would be better to see how we can align ourselves with Mexico and then we wait for Trump to finish shooting himself in the foot one too many times. Then negotiate whatever there is to negotiate with Pence.

In the news today is 600 jobs leaving for Mexico,
as GM lays off at plant near Ingersoll, Ontario.

Could be tip of the iceberg, I hope not.

Trump....great for keeping American jobs ....no so good for Canada

It is not Trump's responsibility to be concerned about Canadian jobs, that is Trudeau's responsibility.

You're correct....Trudeau's responsibility....and that's the problem, let's just say, he's no Trump,
we need a leader that'll put Canada first
