How do you deal with a guy like Donald Trump ?
Obviously not an easy question, but we asked Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty…
“That is really for the government to ask, and i think again we need to make sure that we’re standing tall for Canadian jobs but again this is unprecedented times and we need to make sure we’re across the table in any form of negotiations, that we need to make sure we are mindful of every action and inaction can cost Canadian jobs, Canadian industry losses.”
Doherty also used the phrase “don’t poke the bear” a few times.
We also asked Doherty if he took any offence to some of the language that has been used against the Prime Minister…
“First and foremost those that know me know that i am a fierce defender of our flag and of Canadians. Those in the Cariboo also know that i am as scrappy as ever, and if anybody disparages our country or our region i am probably the first that would be in line to stand us for us. We are working very closely with our colleagues across the floor to make sure that we are putting forward a Team Canada approach.
Doherty says he is encouraged that NAFTA talks will continue, saying that nothing will be solved without dialogue.
He also says he hopes that dialogue is respectful going forward.
