WASHINGTON D.C. – Brian Masse M.P. (NDP – Windsor West) is leading a Canadian section of the Canada-US Inter-parliamentary Group through meetings with United States Congressional Members and Senators over the next three days. The status of the USMCA, steel/ aluminium tariffs, the Gordie Howe Bridge and other cross border concerns will be points of discussion.
“Windsor border issues are always a priority when I am in Washington. Beyond just the construction processes at the two bridges between Detroit and Windsor, I will be discussing issues including Great Lakes restoration and protection, and the impacts of USMCA on workers, resources, economies, and especially on the automotive and manufacturing industry,” said Masse in light of General Motors closing its doors in Oshawa.
As Vice-Chair of the Canada-U.S. Inter-Parliamentary Group, Mr. Masse represents the federal voice of Canadians regarding the possible challenges facing both Canada and the United States. Other topics of interest at these meetings include: overall Canada-US trade, perimeter security, NATO and cybersecurity.
Mr. Masse is in Washington DC from November 26 – 28, 2018.
