Canada’s new trade missions will mainly focus on social justice
In a stunning admission the Liberal Minister of International Trade François Champagne has released a glimpse of what Canada’s future trade missions will focus on, and it appears to mainly be related to gay rights with a social justice approach.
This year, 🇨🇦 will lead 3 landmark trade missions: 1st-ever #LGBTQ2 mission, 1st-ever mission devoted to Indigenous business owners + #WomeninBusiness mission. Now is the time for a new approach to trade & for more Cdns to have the tools to capitalize on it!! #Lib2018 #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/lsrAr1dzRT

Trade missions should focus on trade not just social justice.
Maybe we should instead stick with the dull but effective strategy of promoting Canada's lowest cost producers to leverage comparative advantage? https://t.co/qFBdMHzuAe

Business owners are once again left scratching their heads with a government that is more focused on social issues rather than looking at new ways to generate new revenue.
