Europe Free Trade?

Will we now be able to import EU motorcycles. I wish, I hope, I doubt it!

I think real deal is still 2 yrs away. The legal folks have to translate to over 20 different languages.

The fallout for us could be the reduction of the 6% tariff on bmw stuff.

And I hope, an expansion of the R.I.V. 15 yr inclusion list. I really like those new Moto Morini's. Seems crazy that a vehicle that meets the EU's very strict safety standards is considered off limits by Transport Canada to Canadian consumers.

not a chance.
it is all about protecting the Canadian Oligopoly.
this is about big business.
Basically selling meat to the Europeans.
President Harper has forgotten that the Europeans
won't accept growth hormones.
Ever.

The definition of Oligoploy: A situation in which a small group of firms control the majority of a particular market. I gues kind of like a monopoly.

So,,,Harper [who I hate BTW] is being accused in your comment, of protecting big business monopoly within Canada. Tell us which one? It certainly isn't the Canadian Dairy marketing boards, who are 100% the cause of us paying the highest prices for dairy in,,,,,the industrial world. BTW,,,,they hate this free trade with Europe,,,,they will have to compete with somebody.
The beef industry. If I was European, and had the opportunity to buy Canadian beef [hormones]or European beef [mad cow] I know where I'd spend my money. I donated blood last week. Guess what they ask? Among other things, "Have you lived in Europe?", "Is your total visiting time in Europe added up to 6 months?". Why the F*$@ do you think they are asking this? MAD COW.

Get your facts straight buddy, before you spew politically slanted crud as fact. Fuck.

I just read in the news that details are a few months away for the EU Free Trade Deal. I think it would be in our best interest to contact the CPC and our MP and try to get a program similar to RIV.ca for EU vehicles, specifically motorcycles. I just wrote ED Fast CPC , not sure if that is the guy but I think it is. Occasionally the government will listen to the people, we can only hope!
