Kathleen Wynne calls her Liberal government’s lobbying efforts in Albany a success. New York state legislators have dropped proposed Buy American provisions that could have harmed businesses in this province. The state had intended to include in its budget a policy that would give preference to American-made goods and products worth more than 100 thousand dollars. Ontario urged New York to reconsider. Wynne says Ontario’s economy is “deeply interconnected” with New York state’s, which supports jobs in both regions. Wynne says that if the Buy American provision had passed, Ontario’s cabinet had discussed introducing legislation to allow the province to respond strongly.
