    Looking forward, President Bush, Prime Minister Harper and President Fox have identified emergency management; influenza pandemics, including avian influenza; energy security; and safe and secure gateways (border security and facilitation) as key priorities for the SPP.

    Can anyone fill us in on what steps exactly, Mexico is taking to keep their border with us safe and secure?

    The NAU is bogus tinfoil hat stuff.

    Why are we having an immigration debate if this was in the wings? The only border to worry about under the NAU is between Mexico and Guatemala / Belize.

    Mexico has those borders locked down real good.

    So why bitch about the one between the U.S. and Mexico if the North American Union was coming? That border won't matter.

    It's politically untenable at the moment, but I think a North American union (modeled on the E.U.) is a phenomenal idea.

    There would be no political integration, of course, but total economic integration. Citizens of the three countries could live, work and invest without restriction in all three countries.

    It's been an overwhelming success in Europe. Why not here?

    Whole bunch of people up here will fight tooth and nail against a North American economic union.

    Comparisons to EU don't work for a host of reasons but the number one is simple: the U.S. will want to run the show.

    You can argue the benefits of NAFTA all you want but the softwood lumber issue, if nothing else, has proven one thing: the U.S. does not respect nor adhere to either the content or the spirit of the agreement.
