O Canada! Talking trade in Toronto

These are testing times for trade liberalisation. There has been a lot of talk over the last year about the rise of protectionism and the risks of an all-out trade war.   Whether this actually manifests in significant concrete action remains to be seen – but what should worry us is how hard it is to shift the dial on the public debate on trade. We cannot afford to be disengaged from this: our communities (and the most vulnerable groups in them) will be the losers if we see the erosion of a fifty-year consensus towards more open markets and freeing up flows of trade, investment and people.
