John McCain operative Paul Cellucci, former US Ambassador to Canada, issued a dire warning to Canadians, according to a Toronto Star article today:
OTTAWA–A former American ambassador is warning that Canadians' preference for Democratic presidential candidates flies in the face of the problems that their trade policies would present for Canada.
Paul Cellucci, who served as U.S. ambassador to Canada from 2001 to 2005, believes Republican candidate John McCain would better serve the interests of Canadians when it comes to unfettered trade and respecting NAFTA.
A recent Canadian Press Harris-Decima poll suggested a vast majority of Canadians would like to see Hillary Clinton or fellow Democrat Barack Obama in the White House.
He may have a point. Republican rule has been pretty good for the Canadian dollar...
Even if it hasn't been so good for America.
