>No NAFTA without cultural exemption and a dispute settlement clause, Trudeau vows | CBC News

>Cultural exemption's sudden arrival as NAFTA obstacle leads to head scratching - CityNews Toronto

>Trudeau says no NAFTA without cultural exemption — is it really that important? - Global B.C.

A lot of articles and televised about this up north this week. I'm trying to understand what the impact of absence v presence would be. I think this might have something to do with Canada taxing the US-based Netflix so it can't compete with local stuff like Rogers? In which case I don't fully understand the concern since Netflix is moving towards extreme-leftist content rivaling Canada's.

I guess the concern would be is without tariffs on US content, it would be available at a lower price and more Canadians would watch them. I somewhat understand this: I don't want to pay for the top-tier cable packages (which are the ones with a lot of the more interesting American toons) and have in the past flipped around and resorted to watching the low-budget toons on Aboriginal Peoples Television network. I probably wouldn't have done that if caught up watching the American toons I would have preferred.

On the other hand, I've seen American TV shows like Arrow/Flash/Legends on basic channels like CTV/CBC so it's obviously getting here, whether or not we tariff the sale of that content. If even the free government-sponsored channels have American TV shows, isn't this basically just a cash grab? IE they want to keep charging high fees so that occasionally, our public channels might buy a Canadian show, but still the major channels will be mostly American programming?

If we wanted to be ridiculously nationalist about our TV then we could just ban non-Canadian shows on the government-funded channels. IE withdraw government programming if the channels ever show non-Canadian content. They don't do this though, because it would cause the format to fail. It would be non-competetive garbage and consumers would just ignore the free channels and pay for the non-free channels.

Due to that, is why I think they want these tarrifs, so that the non-free channels will be so expensive that they would not be affordable to Canadians. The only possible way American TV could be affordable by the masses in this system is via the free channels, and then American distributors must negotiate directly with the government-funded groups about what is ==acceptable== instead of negotiating directly with consumers.

This is MILK all over again. Taking choice away from the consumer. Artificially increasing prices for quality and putting that increase in the pocket of the government to help fund the welfare and social justice programs.

I mean hell, I actually like Wapos Bay and Guardians Evolution, but just because shows like this are so unpopular that they couldn't exist without government grants and overpricing the competition doesn't mean the shows MUST exist. There's got to be other more honest ways to encourage versatile content than unfair censorship and trade interference. Spreading awareness of these shows or the possibilities of these shows should be done on a voluntary basis, on the dollar of those who want to see it not the dollar of the nation.

Trump has so far taken tough stances on NAFTA, but congress may not vote to accept a deal with Mexico without Canada included so it's not like he's ruled it out or anything, he just wants fair terms, like letting Idaho sells its milk. AFAIK he hasn't commented on this (((Culture))) Exemption.



It's already entered. It's already reshaped. As bad as Netflix is getting, the culture in Canada is possibly worse. It's so infected that the only fix is to tear it all down by allowing fair access to media from other nations (like Japan and US) to put it out of business and force Canada to make decent content that people actually want to see.

e3ff31, I do not pay for our TV service, I have always refused to. I just watch it because it is free. My mom pays for it.


Personal reasons:

>1 my desktop is in my bedroom on the 2nd floor, and it gets very hot there because I live with an old woman who never exercises so she has a low body temperature

>2 there is not space in my room for my dogs to lie down, they stay in the living room, so I feel compelled to come down and keep them company

>3 do not want my alpha lil bro to bully me for listening to waifus, which is obvious due to high-pitched Japanese voices, so I have to close my door, which prevents me from hearing when dogs bark to want to go out and pee on the grass

>4 any time I buy headphones my bro steals them

>5 ran out of external HD space so need to buy another, but new ones keep coming out and coming down in price so I'm putting it off untli I can get 10TB for 200 or something

>6 torrented anime will be there whenever I need it, PVRs are rented and have limited space so there is more of a compulsion to keep up with them, even though comparatively it is inferior garbage.

This probably resembles some sort of addiction.

But anyway guys, this thread is about Canadian insistence on a cultural exemption clause to unfairly tax imports of foreign media to pay for gibs for psuedorefugees and fund stuff like 16 Hudson so children will see 2 dads and mixed race couples being happy. I don't care how cute Lili is, that's just degenerate.

To be fair, I'm watching Better Call Saul and Frankenstein Chronicles on Netflix now because she's paying for that too. I keep insisting she shouldn't waste the money and we should just cancel the TV but she persists so I may as well use it.

Overheating is not an excuse, it's a valid reason. AC is never on enough in summer and heat is on too much in winter, my room is baking at 30 degrees, that's 86 Fahrenheit for you.

The only decent time is early Spring/ lateAutumn when nothing is on and I can open the windows at night, close them in day. All the heat in this house drifts up to my room so I can't use my comp. That's why I use her laptop to browse /pol/ instead.

Anyway, stop derailing the thread, this isn't about generic Trudeau bashing it's specifically about the issue of ==Cultural Exemption== in NAFTA talks

Its within Trumps power to break the NAFTA deal (by giving 60-90 days notice which has already happened) and sign a bilateral with mexico. What he really wants is for canada to bend on anything then he proclaim its the greatest deal on the planet.

> How was Canada when it first gained independence?

Shows how little you know about us. Our national identity is basically that we are perceived as "nicer" and "more polite" than Americans. Basically our national ID is being cuck cowards. We are not actually independent. Queen is on our money and military must swear to serve her.


I wonder if Trump will fire back by banning Canadians from owning American companies. That would be hilarious. It's a silly restriction because all that happens is all these other nations become dual citizens. The only nations it actually keeps out are Japan (doesn't allow dual citizenship) and America (taxes foreign earnings)


Listen faggot the only Jewish stuff I watched was Dot. and she's only half-Jewish and there haven't been new episodes in months.

it's simply protectionism under a different name, like when the EU wants to subsidize their farmers they invent wild claims about GMOs or swine flu or such drivel. and, keep in mind, this is probably primarily motivated to protect Canadian State television. add to that the fact that advertising has moved away from commercials toward "product placement" (of, generally, American-based consumer goods) in the actual programs themselves, and you get a pretty full picture of why the Canadians want to do this.

also, Trudeau is pwnd so he has to come up with some demand that he thinks Trump might concede in order to save face

Politeness isn't necessarily bad. It can be "gentlemanly" and refined, which just means you say please as your rack your shotgun. The problem has been that Canada has been drowned in waves of immigration and not allowed to develop naturally. Only in pockets too desolate and middle of nowhere for shitskins to immigrate to do you see the remnants of Canadian culture. Primarily the Maritime, but also in isolated rural communities in Eastern BC and Alberta. The "Newfies" (from Newfoundland and Labrador) are the source of the stereotypical Canadian accent, and they're the only folks that are still unapologetically racist and have a dislike of people "from away." And wouldn't you know it, the newfie fishing villages look like a white paradise.

I didn't say politeness was bad. I said the fake image of Canadians as just being polite Americans is a fake identity used to erase Canadians. You should learn how to read.

Also, newfies are not the source of the "stereotypical Canadian accent" at all, Minnesota is. Newfies don't sound anything like the "Canadian" accent. They are also not poor, and not racist. They are cucked to all hell because they don't have any shitskins so they believe the media telling them that everyone is the same. You can't truly hate niggers until you've had to live near them.
