Secretly, the Bush administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA to include Canada

Uh . . . NAFTA already DOES include Canada.

Right. Canada's Mulroney, Mexico's Salinas, and the USA's Bush 41 came up with the original treaty - and Bubba Clinton got the thing through a reluctant Congress. Clinton and Rubin bailed Mexico out of bankruptcy with $ 40 billion, and we were told that NAFTA would put Mexico on the road to prosperity. Instead it just put Mexico on the road north.

Economic marriage between the USA and Canada made economic sense, but hitching the American economy to a corrupt third-world narco-state like Mexico was simply stupid. It also had the effect of destroying Mexican agriculture which could not compete in a free market with efficient American agribusinesses - so the peasants facing starvation head al norte.
