by Trevor Kennedy – Director, Trade and International Policy, Business Council of Canada

In a story in the National Post about the Biden administration’s “Buy American” provisions, Trevor Kennedy discussed the impact this policy would have on Canadian businesses and the overall competitiveness of Canada’s economy.

“From a competitiveness standpoint, this has been a challenge for us, not only for Canadian-based companies, but for European multinational companies, for example, deciding whether or not they will set up shop in Canada or the United States.”
