Good NAFTA article above. I would add however, that the most vicious feature of NAFTA is that it creates a prisoner's dilemma that severely penalizes almost any envirommental legislation - any country can pass all the clean laws it wants restricting its industry, but it can't resist or refuse goods of any kind because they were produced in highly polluting ways. So effective environmental laws will only destroy your own industries. Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulrooney trumpeted the lack of restriction on environmental laws before passage, but he undoubtedly knew what the real agenda was, to hamper such legislation. Certainly, he could see how pleased industry lobbyists were.
