CCPA Monitor;Nov2010, Vol. 17 Issue 6, p13
The author focuses on the failure of the Canadian government to protect its trade during the Global Financial Crisis. He points out that the 55 billion-dollar trade surplus enjoyed by the country in 2004 was gone and replaced by a 27 billion-dollar deficit in 2009. He reveals that the worsening trade performance of the country has affected its domestic economic growth and employment.
