Conservative party’s leader, Andrew Scheer said that Prime Minister Trudeau threatened him by lawsuit following his comments over SNC Lavalin scandal.
Trudeau’s lawyer Julian Porter sent a letter to Scheer called “beyond the pale of fair debate & libellous” on 31st March.
Notably, Trudeau and his Liberals are accused of interfering in SNC Lavalin affair and judicial appointments. After that, they are facing huge continuous unease.
On Sunday, Scheer revealed the letter received by Porter, however, he received the letter on 31st March. Why so much delay?
“Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives have repeatedly made false and defamatory statements. We put him on notice that there are consequences for making completely false and libellous statements,” said Trudeau’s office regarding Scheer’s Statement.
Technically, no one can declare someone convict individually without any proper proof or judicial decision. So, Scheer can blame Trudeau and his party but declaring them as a sure convict is wrong. Allegations against Liberals aren’t legible without any proof.
Whereas, Scheer told reporters, “I believe this is an attempt to stifle criticism of Justin Trudeau. This is a bullying attempt to try to prevent me from doing my constitutional duty as leader of the opposition.”
Even Scheer is right, being an opponent he has right to speak over governmental issues.
As always, PM Justin Trudeau is refusing any misdoing by him or his officials.
Reportedly, Canadian ruling leaders have sued the opponent politicians for libel. As those politicians also made comment over legal issues outside the parliament. Notably, any comment remarked in the parliament immune of prosecution.
US Mexico Agreement – Final Terms Within 90 Days
US Mexico migrant conflict is increasing day by day. Mexico now agreed to take some unrivalled steps to curb the number of migrants seeking refugee status from the US. The nation did so as threatened by US President Trump’s trade tariffs. Here we will discuss a little about US Mexico Agreement.
Trump informed people about the deal via Twitter. He suspends the tariffs indefinitely only if Mexico curbs the migrants’ number. He also threatened to impose 5% import duties rising every month until or unless Mexico takes action against asylum seekers coming to the US.
Astoundingly, the tariffs will keep on increasing each month until it reaches 25% in October.
On Monday, tariffs will come to effect. Mexico Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard also confirmed the deal via Twitter.
The deal took place after three days of negotiations. Washington wants Mexico to crackdown the asylum seekers’ numbers. Mexico is also one of the largest trade partners of the US just after Canada and China. But the country is also in trade between China and Canada.
In this US Mexico agreement, Mexico agreed to take decisive action in tackling human smuggling networks. The nation will also deploy National Guard throughout the country from Monday, pledging up to 6,000 additional troops along Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala.
On the other hand, the US agreed to expand the program of sending asylum seekers back to Mexico whilst they awaited reviews of their claims in return. America would also work to accelerate the adjudication process.
Noticeably, both the nations pledged to strengthen bilateral co-operation over border security with information sharing.
Reportedly, the decision will still take place regarding the declaration. They will announce the final terms of US Mexico agreement within 90 days after the acceptation.
China Canada Relations – Trudeau Wants to Meet China President
Canada PM Justin Trudeau will meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. China Canada relations are getting bitter day by day. Thus, Trudeau wants to meet Xi Jinping directly.
China Canada relationships are sour since December. Canadian authorities as per the US extradition request detained Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. The incident took place in Vancouver.
In addition, China retaliated by detaining a Canadian businessman Michael Spavor. The nation also detained a Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig. He was in China to work for a non-government organization.
Recently, China announced to increase the inspection of Canadian pork products. Previously, the country also stopped the import of Canadian canola seeds.
Trudeau was in the UK and France for D-Day anniversary ceremonies. In Normandy, France, Trudeau informed about his forthcoming meeting in Japan.
He said, “I look forward to being at the G20 in a few weeks as an opportunity to engage with a number of world leaders with whom we have either good working relationships or challenges. The opportunity to engage with the Chinese president directly is certainly something that we are looking at. The continued detention of two Canadians in an arbitrary manner by the Chinese government is of utmost concern to us.”
Further, he said, “Their actions on canola, their issues around other products as well is of concern. We are going to highlight the processes and the engagement that Canada has with the world and the way China should engage with the world needs to remain, following the rules, principles and values that we’ve all agreed to.”
Noticeably, PM Trudeau was in continuous pressure from opponents conservatives to meet Xi Jinping.
Earlier, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland also tried to meet Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi. But, somehow she failed to do so.
Also, the Chinese Ambassador will soon be appointed to a new post. Thus, now, neither China nor Canada has a permanent ambassador to look forward into the issue.
Significantly, the G20 summit will take place at the end of the month in Osaka.
So, this was everything about Trudeau’s will to meet Xi Jinping for better China Canada Relations.

First Hurdle Of USMCA Removed – Tariffs & Levies Lifted
Finally, US Canada reached a deal for lifting tariffs on steel & aluminium. Both the sides are agreed to lift the tariffs within two days. the new agreement indicates the ratification of USMCA signed in 2018.
Both the nations announced that 25% tariffs on steels and 10% tariffs on aluminium import will end in 48 hours. Expectedly, the US & Mexico will make the same announcement soon.
The two countries will regularly inspect imports. If one of the nations is buying too much then after the consultation, the nation can again imply the tariffs.
But, the agreement does not include information of quotas related to purchasing of steel & aluminium.
Notably, the tariffs were the main obstruction in permitting the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) signed in 2018. Now, it replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Along with that, Mexico & Washington also announced an agreement to lift levies on steel and aluminium. Three of the countries will ask their individual government to approve the USMCA.
After the US-China trade deal ended without any agreement. Now the US is looking forward to making a deal with closer nation.
The imposed tariffs were the foremost hurdle in the agreement of the three countries. US president Donald Trump loves the tariffs so much that he himself called him ‘tariff man’.
On Friday, Trudeau said, “These tariffs were harming workers and consumers on both sides of the border. As we look at moving forward with the new NAFTA, it didn’t make a lot of sense to continue to have tariffs on steel and aluminium between our countries.”
The Conservative Party expressed broad support for the text Canada signed last Nov. 30. There’s little reason to conclude it could not be ratified in Canada even if the government changes hands next fall, but Trudeau’s current Liberal government may prefer that the deal it negotiated be ratified on his watch.
Trump concluding from findings that US carmakers are unable to make much revenue for investing in R & D. However, the report is not published yet.
He said, “The lag in R&D expenditures by American-owned producers is weakening innovation and, accordingly, threatening to impair our national security.”
In addition, The White House is going to take more time of 6 months for trade talks with the European Union & Japan.
After the 6 months, the US will decide whether to involve in trade talks with EU & Japan or not.
