“Bois d’œuvre : les négociations seront « très difficiles », avertit Chrétien” by Charles Lecavalier, Le Journal de Montréal.

Le Journal de Montréal quotes Montréal lawyer Raymond Chrétien in an article on Canada-U.S. talks regarding the softwood lumber dispute.

“There is a protectionist wind blowing, not only in the United States, but pretty much everywhere in the world and it is going to make these negotiations even harder, because, believe me, the Americans never come bearing gifts,” Raymond Chrétien said on Tuesday at a press conference at the National Assembly.

The nephew of former Prime Minister of Canada Jean Chrétien is a partner and strategic advisor at Fasken Martineau and was ambassador of Canada to the United States from 1994 to 2000. He was chosen by the Couillard government to improve Quebec’s chances of getting a satisfactory agreement.
