Canada-US Border

Today's second poll question; should we seek a more efficient border with the United States? We are currently negotiating a deal to do exactly that, because the flow of business across the border is far too slow. We are each other's top trading partners. Is Canada still the number one foreign supplier of crude oil to the United States? Our manufacturing sector is incredibly dependent on American consumption. American companies make a lot of money selling goods in Canada. A faster border is best for both of us.

It is great that Prime Minister Stephen Harper is working on this matter. It is important to speed up the border process, but some people seem to think that we are giving up our sovereignty. I trust Stephen Harper on this matter.

  1. Your question about crude, see this Iceman.

    "Canada is the largest U.S. oil supplier at about 2 million barrels a day, compared with about 900,000 barrels a day from Venezuela, which ranked fourth in 2009 exports to the U.S., according to the Energy Department."

    Judging from the Liberal reaction that the PM is selling off Canada's sovereignty in secret deals with Obama, I smell a re-birth of the *scary, scary* agenda. LOL
