HM Minister of International Trade Peter Van Loan was in Montreal today for an event sponsored by the Dollard Pierrefonds Riding association and their soon to be Candidate Agop Evereklian. It was a great event with a large,enthusiastic and multiethnic, crowd. There was a nominal admission fee which was donated to Pakistan flood relief. I spoke to the Minister about free trade , congratualtiong HM Government for the big increase in free trade agreements. I encouraged to expand our free trade agreements especially with he UK, India, Australia and New Zealand.
Here is the HM Minister's speech where he talked a lot about free trade. We should have free trade with the EU in about a year. I like thata Canada has unilaterally dropped some duties. Increasing trade is a good idea and is a real accomplishment of HM Government.
I also want to congratulate Agop and his team for the great event. He will be a great MP one day and hopefully a cabinet minister.
