Boris Johnson has set out his vision for a trade deal with the EU, saying there is "no need" for the UK to follow Brussels' rules.

The party's leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said the PM risked trade and investment in the UK if he kept "undermining collective agreements". Under the EU-Canada deal, import tariffs on most goods have been eliminated between the two countries, though there are still customs and VAT checks. MORE

During the 1920s almost one-sixth of all the furniture made in Canada was made at Stratford.
The success of the furniture trade can be explained by Stratford’s location as a hub on the railway systems of the CNR which carried the products far and wide in six directions. The most important was the main line northeast to Toronto and Montreal, and southwest to Chicago, although the line to Buffalo was also important. Consequently, Stratford furniture was sold all over North America. MORE
