Free trade

Am I to understand now that since the Canadian PM signed the trade agreement with the EU, I can buy a European made sailboat, bring it to Canada and not have to pay the duty? Just the regular taxes

Quoting https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comp...rade_Agreement


"If ratified by the European Parliament, most of the agreement will take effect on a provisional basis. The remaining parts of the agreement are subject to ratification by national legislatures"

I wouldn't rush out and place an order just yet ...

Wouldn't get your hopes up for anything, NAFTA proved that to Canadians.

You have to admit that NAFTA really helped exports of our automotive industry. So much so that we were able to export most of the industry itself!
