Anyone here tired of Wal-Mart opening up supercentres up in the suburbs and the factories closing to move to Mexico (Hershey)? I think it is time for NAFTA to go. Clearly it is a threat to our Canadian identity.

We had The Real Canadian Superstore before we had Wal-Mart.
Very good point vid. People tend to only look at the current situation. How many remember the past, and learn from it?

NAFTA should go because the 'mericans have opted not to abide by the rules.

Start some commercial ventures on the East Coast, how about. Our Superstores sold nothing but food until long after WalMart got here, most of them still do.

It's kind of inevitable that we trade as much as we do with the US due to geography and the fact they are such a huge market. I'd like to see Canada expanding it's trade further with Europe so we don't depend on the US as much. Perhaps also expanding it's trade within the Commonwealth which is historically familiar, and a gigantic market to tap into. See India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Australia, Nigeria, SA, etc.

well what's amazing is the US economy is doing terribly at the moment, and usually when it does this bad we feel it too (the elephant rolls over the mouse), but this time around we haven't felt anything and are doing quite well ourselves. it's weird.

how is US economy doing terribly at this moment?
terribly isn't the right word.....it's not doing that bad i guess, but it's not up to its prime.

Just have to wear polar bear suits for camo!
We just have to dress up as hillbillies and the 'mericans will think that they already have taken over. :lol:
