Canada, EFTA sign deal

Canada signed a free trade agreement with the four countries that make up EFTA, the European Free Trade Association: Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Great. Given they export to us far more than we ship to them, that should reduce our trade surplus by ... $3 billion per year. Still, I'd rather trade with them than dictatorships like Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

You know what would really be great? Having an open border with Europe -- the EU as well as EFTA. Anything to tick off the Americans -- especially those who claim the One World Government is a sign of the end times. It's quite possible given the US' growing unreliability on issues of trade as well as its reliance on brutal dictatorships to borrow money from, our future may lie from where many of our parents call home -- not the country below Canada.
