NAFTA – not

According to today’s Vancouver Sun, Canadians are prohibited from bringing to Canada any purchases made in the U.S. if their visit to the U.S. was shorter than 24 hours. It seems that North American Free Trade is not so free if you are Canadian.

It calls to mind whether Canada is even a free country (health care rationing, satellite dish restrictions, egregious free speech abridgment, etc.), but that I suppose is still open to debate. And who am I to imply that a free Canada would be good for Canadians.

What is indisputable, though, is that NAFTA is a misnomer.
