As well as fostering healthy North-South trade with U.S., Mexico, the countries of Central America and the Caribbean, Canada should focus trade relation within our borders (East-West). Workers should be able to practice their professions and trades across this country without the provincially imposed restrictions that now exist. This will increase prosperity and further our national identity.
Some restrictions should apply. Increased trade across borders should not include;
non-renewable resources such as water,
wood from old-growth forests
sales of uranium
components for weapons of mass destruction
