Negotiate a Free Trade Agreement

In our mission Negotiate a Free Trade Agreement, we ask readers to help form an agreement between two towns that grow different strawberries.  One town, Luctusville, grows organic, hand picked berries and the other, Igshire, makes commercial ones grown with pesticides.  Readers were asked to help the Mayor decide whether or not a free trade agreement should be made. Here are some of the responses. 

________________________________________________________________

From Gabby (Grade 5) Michigan: Yes they should form a free trade agreement.  I would buy the organic strawberries so that I get the best to eat.  Allow the people of Igshire to sell their strawberries in Luctusville because in most places they sell both and Business tends to stay the same for both sides. 

From Jonah (Grade 6) Toronto: Yes, they should form a free trade agreement.  I would buy organic strawberries so that I get the best to eat.  I would tell him to keep free trade so we don't have to pay taxes. 

From Evelyn (Grade 6) Toronto: Yes, they should form a free trade agreement.  I would buy organic strawberries.  I would recommend that the mayor trades only a small amount at a time so the market won't be flooded.

From Eve (Grade 5) Toronto:  No. They should not form an agreement.  I would buy only organic strawberries.  I would recommend to the mayor that he could ask they mayor of Igshire if they could try it first and see if people like it . And if they don't you can not agree on the Free Trade. 

From AmeliaH (Grade 6) Toronto: Yes, they should form a free trade agreement.  I would buy organic strawberries. I would recommend for the mayor to have one season where they sell only organic (Luctusville) strawberries, and one season where they sell only the Igshire berries.
