You may or may not have heard, but Canada PM Justin Trudeau and Mexico Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo have stated that they were willing to discuss the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). President-elect Donald Trump won the US Presidential Election just two days ago and two of our main trade partners are showing a willingness to at least discuss NAFTA, an agreement Trump has previously stated needed either some serious renegotiation or scrapping. What does this mean? How will this affect our continent?
Recently, we’ve heard people call for the abolishment of the electoral college. Mostly, it’s coming from people who don’t like Donald Trump and feel that the popular vote should be the determining factor in who wins the White House. There have been theories such as Hillary not being a decent candidate to Russia being involved (of course, right?). While one of these theories may have some validity, this isn’t the real reason why Hillary lost the electoral vote. She won the popular vote, but many people can’t figure out how she lost in the long run. That’s why I decided to sit down and try to explain it to everyone.
