Canada's friendship with India

Postby justincase » Mar 7th, 2018, 5:08 pm

Spin Alert - “Pulse Canada said it received word from Agriculture Canada on Friday that Kabuli chickpeas

– which represent 95 per cent of chickpeas grown in Canada – will be exempt from the Indian tariff

increase, meaning very few Canadian exports will be affected by the new duty.”

Our government has been doing a good job of trying to create a difficult trade agreement with india. Some people here like to look at the deals just signed as a loss for canada because we have more company money going to india than they have coming here. If you look at it like inroads to one of the largest consumer markets on the planet though... I think it looks like good business sense and long term planning.
So much of the violent push-back on everything progressive and reformist comes down to: I can see the future, and in this future I am not the centre of the universe and master of all that I survey, therefore this future must be resisted at all costs.

From what I read, chickpeas are not a big export for Canada anyway. However, this part caught my attention.

"Canada is not a big grower or exporter of chickpeas. But the crop is part of a broader category that includes lentils, and green and yellow peas, for which Canada is a big exporter. India, in turn, is the world's biggest consumer of pulses, a protein-rich crop popular in a country with a large vegetarian population.

"India's shift around pulses and what it means to the Canadian industry is profound, because it was our biggest market. It has been a billion-dollar market every year," Mr. Bacon said. "It has basically fallen off to virtually nothing."

If this is actually true, then hurray for them. Given the source though, it's tough to just swallow this wholesale.

I agree. This is why it was so brain-dead to send over Captain Selfie to run around in Indian clothes dancing and inviting terorists to parties. What were the Liberals thinking???

Who the F cares? That's their opinion, who cares about their political opinion. Did they have a specific reason that affected them? Or just personal opinions on the man.

Why are you showing a picture of Harper if you really mean Trudeau? If you are referring to the fake news story about Harper and the fire-fighters, that literally was fake news. It never happened. It was a fake news story on a fake site that makes funny made-up stories. But why I am not surprised that you would try and sell this as real. Get some integrity dude.
