“Canada’s ambassador to U.S. says protectionists emboldened by Trump” by Giuseppe Valiante, CTV News.

CTV News quotes Montréal lawyer Raymond Chrétien in an article about President-elect Donald Trump on the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Raymond Chretien, Canada's former ambassador to the U.S. who is currently representing Quebec's interests in the lumber negotiations, told the crowd after MacNaughton's speech that “the Americans never give gifts.”

“They negotiate tooth and nail for their interests,” he said. “And because they are richer than us we have to fight hard to protect our interests.”
