Hard for Trump to ‘put toothpaste back in the tube’

The U.S. president doesn’t understand the importance of America’s relationship with Canada, but Wayne Easter does.
The Malpeque MP is the co-chair of the U.S. interparliamentary group. It has been around for 59 years.
The principle is the two countries have the biggest trading relationship in the world between Canada and the United States, said Easter.
“We’re friends and allies in everything that we do.”
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is the biggest issue today. The interparliamentary group keeps track of jobs in each district dependent on NAFTA, he said.
“We can explain how important this relationship with Canada is.”
To build a car, manufacturers must send it back and forth from Canada to the U.S. at least seven times. It’s called a supply chain.
“What Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that it’s hard to put toothpaste back in the tube.”
Trump doesn’t want to hear about supply chains. He’ll probably take the issue to the edge, said Easter.
“Hopefully he doesn’t take it over, but he might.”
Corryn Clemence understands the importance of U.S. trade.
The cruise ship passenger traffic last year exceeded 100,000 people, with many of them Americans, said the business development manager.
She works for the Charlottetown Harbour Authority. She talked about the cruise ship business at the unveiling of the 2018 tourism marketing campaign Feb. 26.
The harbour has been improving quickly. There were 25 ships in the city during 2006 and now there are 95. There has been a direct economic impact of $15.5 million, she said.
“We have the highest debark rate in all of Atlantic Canada.”
A large part of Island tourism focuses on offering our agriculture, experiences and products to tourists, she said.
“People look for a way to get those products when they get home.”
