“Québec tente de se faire rassurant sur les relations économiques avec Trump ” by Jean Philippe Angers, La Presse Affaires.

La Presse Affaires quotes Montréal lawyer Raymond Chrétien in an article on the economic relationship between Quebec and the Trump administration in the US.

During a press conference held following the cabinet meeting, Me Chrétien stated that discussions had been “very open” to “brutally and realistically discover” the best way for Quebec to assert its interests concerning softwood lumber and NAFTA.

The lead softwood lumber negotiator advises Quebec and Ottawa to be “vigilant”, to have a long-term strategy, but also to be “highly flexible given the new power (in Washington), whose major directions remain unknown”.
