That ought to shut them up

I'm still torn on which Democratic candidate for President I'd favour, but I have to admit, all this NAFTA bashing from both of them is very irritating indeed. Bash Chindia, if you want to target the real job loss boogie man.

Well here comes our Minister of Trade, David Emerson with a 'friendly' warning that re-opening NAFTA is a two-way street.

Its an odd day indeed when I support a Conservative cabinet minister's sharp words to US Democrats.

Its also astonishing that a Conservative (albeit, a former Liberal) would play the oil card. Recall it was instant recrimination and hellfire from Ralph Klein and his Alliance proxies whenever Chretien even joked about using oil as leverage.

But that was a long time ago, and these ain't your father's Conservatives no more.
