Council of the Assymetrical Federation

A late communiqué from the — say it in your James Earl Jones voice — Council of the Federation:

Premiers are encouraged by the pace of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) negotiations and will remain actively involved as negotiations move forward. Premiers agree on the importance of improving trade relations between Canada and the European Union (EU) and believe the CETA between Canada and the EU presently under negotiation has the potential to benefit all parties by creating substantial and reciprocal economic gains, more cooperation in a range of sectors, and an opportunity to address outstanding trade irritants.

Newfoundland and Labrador still has substantive issues with the content and process of CETA, and does not acknowledge any consensus position arising from the discussions of Premiers today.

There used to be this crowd who'd cry pink, white, and green tears into their beer, while musing about tearing up the Terms of Union and running off to join Ireland in Yurp.

Wonder who they'll turn to now?
