Maybe I'm naive—Pierre Marc has much more experience than I do in trade issues—but I think health and education are not on the table, and they never have been. For Canadians—and in other countries also—these basic services to citizens are important. Maybe they'll ask me, because they're going to ask for things which are going to be very offensive in the next few weeks. They've done so in Ottawa, but the rest will be in Washington, and then let's hope that it's a little friendlier.... On that, though, it is something that is totally unacceptable to Canadians of whatever political party.
