Under the original NAFTA and under the WTO, it seems to me that buy America has restricted Canadians' access to U.S. government procurement.
I know that New Flyer Industries produces diesel and electric buses. They have manufacturing facilities in Transcona, among other places, but they've been losing jobs as the U.S. content requirement under buy America goes up for their buses.
How is it, if the principle is reciprocal access...? I'm not aware of U.S. companies being under any obligation of any kind to have jobs in Canada in order to get access to Canadian government procurement. Why is it that, despite all the boosterism about the WTO and NAFTA, buy America persists and the Canadian government hasn't taken any real action against these measures, which clearly contradict what are supposed to be the benefits of free trade for Canada?
