The process of tossing Free Trade down the molehole.

"Buy Canada"?

So much for "free trade".  You know, I don't really care what policies a country pursues, if the government of that country feels that certain policies would benefit its country then it ought to pursue them since it has that obligation as the government of its country.  I do, however, have a problem with countries that go around promoting (more like shoving down the throats of other countries) one policy then BAM turns around and does the exact opposite at home.

I finally get what "free trade" means when the politicians and economists promote it.  It means let everyone else open their borders so that we can take their money without barriers but let us put up walls so the money can't get out of our own country.  Brilliance.
