Mike Moffatt | Trump presidency bad for trade deals that Southwestern Ontario relies on

Last night, Donald J. Trump became the president-elect of the U.S. What does this mean for Canada, and specifically Southwestern Ontario? Assistant Professor Mike Moffatt, Director of the Lawrence Centre, says things aren't looking good for the region.

In the London Free Press, Moffatt said the London region is the most vulnerable part of the country to the trade policies advocated by Trump. Over the next few years, the uncertainty will slow investment by companies in Southwestern Ontario as they sort out the implications of a Trump victory.

Moffatt also said now that Trump has been elected, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is virtually dead.
