“Mayor Rick Bonnette is one of the most energetic, thoughtful and pragmatic municipal leaders in Canada today. On the recent “Buy American” issue which threatened hundreds of jobs in Halton Hills and tens of thousands across Canada by restricting Canadian made products sold in America, Mayor Rick was the leading municipal voice drawing attention to the need for “fair and reciprocal trade” with our neighbours to the south. He played a invaluable “game changing” role by drawing international media attention to the issue, which ultimately led to the unprecedented “Canada-U.S. Trade Agreement” signed in February.
From all of us at IPEX who live in Halton Hills and surrounding area, we thank him for his Herculean efforts.”
