He saw it as gaining new market access.
I've looked at the agreement. On issues of market access, it looks like it was Canada that conceded without any corresponding gains on market access.
I know there are some improvements on how we deal with non-tariff barriers such as sanitary and phytosanitary standards, but I don't see any real substantive new market access in Canada's favour. Yet Americans certainly have new market access, especially in the areas of chicken, dairy and eggs.
I'm just wondering how we square that, because the government said that this was going to be a “win-win-win” and promised us it was going to be a better deal than we had before. Quite frankly, by any standard that I've applied, this agreement is lesser. Yes, it preserves market access to the United States, our largest trading partner, but it's not a better agreement.
