North America is headed for an inevitable union

“In the last half of the Twentieth Century, Canada effectively abandoned the vision of being an economic and military power separate from the United States. Recognizing that our north-south axis ultimately trumped our east-west arrangements, we accepted the continentalization of North American defence and the economy.
