A Look At Canada’s Version Of Trump’s Red Tape Regulations Order

In late January, President Trump issued an executive order mandating that many federal agencies repeal two regulations for every new one they create. The order has been met with intense backlashthe Natural Resources Defense Council, Public Citizen, and Communications Workers of America have filed a lawsuit seeking to block the order.

But Canadian small business advocates say that if the order is designed and implemented the way it has been in Canada, it could be a positive step forward for the U.S. For more on how Canada has reduced red tape we turn to Laura Jones, the executive vice president and chief strategic officer of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).
