The premiers of Ontario and Saskatchewan have signed a memorandum of understanding – to work together to reduce interprovincial trade barriers.
Ontario’s Doug Ford told a joint news conference with Scott Moe in Toronto – that business leaders have said trade barriers are one of the primary obstacles – to attracting new investment and jobs to Canada.
Ford says Canada has focused on free trade with the United States at the expense of internal trade – but it cannot afford not to act on internal trade barriers.
Both leaders are already working together to oppose the federal government’s carbon pricing plan – for provinces that don’t have their own system in place by next year.
