Pg. 324 "The United States will not, and cannot, defend Canada and the rest of the world at its own expense indefinitely. Eventually, Canada may be invoiced for tens of billions of dollars annually by Washington for security costs, particularly if the relationship ebss or sours. This means Canada must pay for, or replace, U.S. protection as the world becomes more desperate for its resources."
"....Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, while Canadians are malevolently well informed about the United States." John Bartlet Brebner.
"China, Russia, and OPEC members would attempt to intervene because a U.S.-Canada union would diminish their geopolitical importance and trade reach, and halt their incursions into the U.S. through Canada."
Pg. 341 "...Canadians know they have a nice country, but they remain reliant on the United States. Canada, essentially, is a semi-autonomous jurisdiction buttressed, economically and militarily, by the United States." -
SummaryAdd a Summary
Diane Francis offers a number of strong arguments why the US and Canada should integrate more closely economically, politically, and militarily. Using Germany and the European Union as an example of unification, the benefits or a merger become more apparent in this work. As the thirst for resources grows throughout the world, countries other than the US will compete for control of strategic assets in North America and Canadians as well as Americans should ask themselves if deep down they really want to see this happen.
