OTTAWA – Canadians may have the right to live and work in the UK, Australia and New Zealand under a new free trade area that the Conservatives want.
Erin O’Toole on Thursday made proposals to strengthen trade and diplomatic ties with Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom which he said would create more jobs for Canadians.
The proposed agreement would reduce trade barriers, increase intelligence cooperation, and make it easier for Canadians to study and work in this free trade zone.
Conservatives have also made proposals for closer ties with India, with plans to resume free trade talks with that country.
O’Toole, who also wants to move away from China, says the Conservative government will make it more difficult for SOEs “in non-free countries” to buy from Canadian companies.
In their private platform unveiled Wednesday, the liberals released plans for an Asia-Pacific strategy to increase economic and defense ties in the region and forge new trade deals.
