Man, Canada's on a roll. First there was the suggestion that Canada bail Iceland out of its current troubles by basically adopting it and making it a new province. Then this article about how Canada's banks have largely avoided the current crisis in America and Europe. And now this:
Following a meeting in Quebec City, Canada’s prime minister, Stephen Harper, and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, who is the president of the European Union as well, are expected to sign an agreement for preliminary negotiations meant to create a trade pact between Canada and Europe that would be even more sweeping than the North American Free Trade Agreement.
And the killer part of the deal:
If adopted it would minimize barriers in services, include sales to government, open up the air travel market and allow skilled Canadians and Europeans to work across borders without visas.
How cool would it be to be able to just be like, "Yeah, I think I'm going to move to Paris for a while, then maybe Amsterdam, then maybe I'll come back and work in Toronto or Vancouver. Oh, what's that American friend? You need a Visa to work in Europe? Huh...seems archaic."
