U.S. election: Cooler heads will prevail says P.E.I. MP
MP says new president-elect has to work with Congress and Senate
Wayne Easter, who co-chairs the Canada-United States Inter-Parliamentary Group, says now that the voting is over the political reality will set in for president-elect Donald Trump.
The Malpeque MP said cooler heads will prevail now that the United States election has been settled.
- Trump presidency may not endanger Canada-U.S. free trade
- Donald Trump wins U.S. election in astonishing victory
The Canada-United States Inter-Parliamentary Group works on issues common to both countries.
Easter said most of the elected representatives in the U.S. make their decisions on fact-based research, not rhetoric.
He added he hoped the new president wouldn't damage the trade relationships P.E.I. has for fish, potatoes and aerospace.
