You Go, Harper!!

Stephen Harper readies for all-out trade push with India
"Among the prime minister’s objectives:

· Triple annual bilateral trade with India — from $5.2 billion to $15 billion — by 2015.

· Reach a comprehensive free trade deal with India next year, part of a broader goal to liberalize trade with Europe and some Pacific Rim nations. One of Harper’s cabinet ministers has cited a Canada-India joint study which suggests a trade agreement between the two countries could boost the Canadian economy by at least $6 billion and create nearly 40,000 jobs.

· Establish Canada as a prime future supplier of energy for India, now the world’s fourth-largest energy consumer, with consumption expected by (sic) double by 2025. Canada is keen to export liquefied natural gas to India."
The Empire lives on!!

PS: Don't worry, Yanks. Just do your part on the 6th. We still love you.

I predict one of the rapid consequences of the Romney election will be a VERY speedy approval of the Keystone pipeline. As Harper put it and to which Romney agrees, that decision is a no-brainer.

I've never been so fascinated with politics on both sides of the border. IMHO, Harper-Hitler is as brilliant a strategist as O is a bust. Interesting times.
