Good News, or Bad News?

I have always had an affection for "good news - bad news" jokes and it looks like our industry may have one of those this week. If the Canadian government goes ahead and implements the CETA agreement, it looks to us like boats that are imported from Europe will no longer have the 9.9% duty imposed on them. The question is, which side of the joke will you be on?

For some dealers, this could be welcome news while others may find that their price competitive position suffers. Look for more news on this subject as it unfolds.

I also expect more news to come from the Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons who held their AGM last week in BC. Don't forget to register now for the November 22 start of the Boating BC Conference in Vancouver. I see that the Early bird registration date for the Boating Ontario Conference that starts November 27 in Collingwood, Ontario has been extended a few days. Still…I'll get my registration in today.
