What I don't understand about the democratic/liberal policies is there stance on trade deals around the world. They openly support Nafta, and tried
to push through the Asia trade deal in secrecy. So in effect, they promote big industries off shoring jobs because to them it's all an open world,
open border policy.
This goes against many other facets of the liberal belief system that it creates hypocrisy right from the get go. For instance, how in the world can
it be "environmentally councious" to ship such things as steel, raw materials, crude oil, and many other dangerous things across the oceans. Talk
about creating a carbon footprint!!
In my neck of the woods (GTA) I work in a steel mill outside Toronto. We make construction steel products such as rebar, channel, and angle in various
lengths and thicknesses. It's a very clean process as we melt scrap metal (steel is the most recyclable material on the plant) instead of using
coking coal and iron ore. We use electricity to melt the scrap which is the most efficient and cleanest way to do it, we have stringent baghouse
emission standards to adhere to as well as safety protocols.
The point of my story is that a major highway is being built through the greater Toronto area called the 407, and none of our steel is being used.
That is liberal policies for you. We will bring these masssive ships from Turkey and CHina across the ocean, through the St. Lawrence river, into the
Great Lakes, and to a deep port in Oshawa and use that steel instead of our own.
That is what a trade deal gets you, how in the world is it cheaper for all that to happen, when my steel mill is less than 10 km from the highway!
Maybe because they're communist, subsidize electricity costs and transportation costs, pay the workers nothing, provide no safety to the workers and
no consideration for the environment openly polluting.
So which is, fighting climate change and reducing carbon footprint, or open trade and killing the middle class and the environment?
