exchange on trade at G&M

Michael Hart responds to typical trade questions in a Globe and Mail Q&A.

Among his notable responses is a Lester B. Pearson quote:

The picture of weak and timid Canadian negotiators being pushed around and browbeaten by American representatives into settlements that were 'sell-outs' is a false and distorted one. It is often painted, however, by Canadians who think that a sure way to get applause and support at home is to exploit our anxieties and exaggerate our suspicions over U.S. power and politics.
