THE BIG CONCERN FOR THE
Canadian auto sector against the
backdrop of rhetoric of the United
States presidential election should
not be whether candidates Donald
Trump or Hilary Clinton would
change or eliminate the North
American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA), but the Trans-Pacific
Partnership, experts say.
Even if American dissatisfaction with the 22-year-old NAFTA is
largely focused on gains made by
Mexico, the impact of its dissolution - on Canada, on Mexico, on the
United States itself - would make
the U.K-Europe Brexit split look
like a passing squabble.
And never mind the physical
wall Trump wants along the boundary with Mexico, when walls of tariffs rise along formerly open bor-

HAILING FROM A UNION FAMILY,
Unifor president Jerry Dias has fighting
in his blood. That's a good thing given the
road ahead.
Simply put, Dias wants renewed automaker commitments and investments in
Canadian plants. It's tougher than it sounds
in an economy where it might be easier for
the Detroit Three automakers to pull up
stakes and move to Mexico than deal with

Marchionne, Jerry Dias

a cantankerous union representing 23,000
workers for Ford, GM and FCA in Canada.
A year ago he was basically alone as federal-government support for the auto industry was non-existent, so when Dias leaned
into the microphone at Unifor's convention
Aug. 26 and told the union audience that
former Prime Minister Stephen Harper had
just announced his resignation from politics, the room erupted.
"There were 1,800 people yelling and

CURRENCY FLUCTUATIONS
are a fact of life that the North
American auto industry has
coped with for decades, but this
time around the low Canadian
dollar has brought some new
challenges.
While the cross-border
movement of used vehicles
has shifted southbound with
American buyers attracted by
relatively low prices after conversion, some importers are
finding that the process for
bringing vehicles across the
border has become more onerous in recent months.
"There's now a 30-day holding period after the vehicle is
deemed road-ready in the U.S.,
so that's taken a lot of the steam
out and added a lot of bureaucracy and extra cost," says
Greg Timm, President of Pacific
Customs
Brokers
in Blaine,
Wash.
"Now the
importer has to hire a holding
yard, they've got to apply to get
the vehicle out, and it's got to
be re-stamped out again."
Timm says that although
there is an abundance of
Canadian product available
of interest to the American
used market - "there are lots
of items coming out of the Fort
McMurray area as that indus-
