Canada benefits from our PM being friends with the US President

Posted on February 9, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

One can argue that Canada benefits from our PM being friends with the US President.  Canada was not going to be part of NAFTA.  It was going to be a US-Mexico trade pact, just like the US-Canada agreement a couple years earlier.  And Mulroney used his friendship with Bush to weasle in nad make Canada a part of the larger agreement.  The US was moving to a hub-and-spoke model where they were the hub and they had trade agreements with all of the spokes like Canada and the US.  We wanted to be a larger player and make it a true free trade area.
