Canada is a trading nation. Since before Confederation, our prosperity has depended on our ability to buy and sell across borders. It is not possible to sustain a robust, growing economy in the 21st century without the freedom to trade with other peoples. The only role for government should be in the resolution of disputes. Other than that it needs to get out of the way and allow Canadians to trade freely with each other and with people across the planet.
As Prime Minister I will:
- Seek out new free trade deals with our partners and allies like the United Kingdom
- Remove all physical trade barriers between provinces by enforcing Section 121 of the Constitution
