"Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Competitiveness"
"A Declaration by the President of the United States of America and the Prime Minister of Canada."
John Manley, former Liberal deputy prime minister and now president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, yesterday in his inside voice :
"The real question will be what do we get at the border in exchange for greater co-ordination on security."
John Manley back in 2005 when he was Canada Chair of the deep integration project, The Independent Task Force on the Future of North America , in his outside voice :
"The Task Force's central recommendation is establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter."
Ok, so it's a wee bit behind schedule due to our foolish sentimental notions of Canadian sovereignty and privacy.
The question is : Are we going to let them get away with it this time?
