Transnational corporate “trading partners” in the U.S. and Canada are not about to let borders and the draconian border security apparatus get in the way of doing business. You and I will be subjected to increased border “security” and ever increasing Gestapo abuse at the airport while large corporations will get to write their own rules. From The Globe and Mail earlier in the week:
Stephen Harper’s Conservatives are negotiating a perimeter security agreement with the United States – a deal designed to ensure the vital trade flow between Canada and its largest trading partner is not choked off by the aggressive U.S. security bureaucracy.

“We intend to work together to defend and protect the land, maritime, air and cyberspace domains of both the United States and Canada and to enhance the security of our integrated transportation and communication networks,” says a draft version of a declaration on a possible deal obtained by The Globe and Mail.
“We intend to pursue a perimeter approach to security, working together within, at and away from the borders of our two countries in a way that supports economic competitiveness, job creation and prosperity, and in a partnership to enhance our security and accelerate the legitimate flow of people and goods between our two countries.”
