Will The Global Economic Crisis Save Or Kill NAFTA?

Posted on Monday, January 05 at 09:07 by NAUWATCH

For years, NAFTA had remained dormant as a significant issue in American and Canadian federal political campaigns.

In both countries, the viability of the free trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. hadn't been questioned since the early 1990s.

Sure, there have been disputes -- for example, over softwood timber -- but the trade pact, itself, was never in doubt.

That is, until this spring 2008. That's when the Democratic presidential candidates thrust NAFTA back into the political limelight, telling voters they wanted to take a second look at the deal.
