Quote of the Show:

The bigger volume between Canadian and European Markets will be the European Market. The U.K. is the 3rd or 4th of the European Economy as a whole due to Brexit. Then within the EU itself, you have major players such as Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. In addition, you have the downstream countries.
