You can’t trust those communist Canadian media sources!
There has been quite a bit of media coverage on the NAFTA comments. What is the general impression of free trade in the US? Traditionally, I would have said the US was very pro free market, but in the past few years it seems increasingly protectionist.
As for Canada, we were originally terrified (I honestly don’t think that is too strong of a word) when free trade was first coming in. However, like most things it turned out to have its pros and its cons, but did not alter life in Canada.
Currently Canada is mostly in favour of free trade (from my experience), but we get pissed at times too on issues like dispute resolution.
My personal opinion is I like open borders and we should continue to work together to refine items of contention.
Rick Mercer, a comedian up here, commented that the US seems to forget we also have a say and if the US pulls out we, as a nation, will write a sternly worded letter to the US… we won’t actually mail it, but we’ll write it! So watch out.
