I think TPM is correct, Canada is very dependent on the US economy. The facts and figures back that up. Now you may very well be correct that China COULD be a recipient of your goods, but that hasn't happened yet. And if it does, the US will still be a large if not the still the largest consumer of your goods. And the relationship economically between the two will still be way skewed as far as what Canada buys from the US as opposed to what the US buys from Canada. I can't see the Canadian government risking 80% of their economy over 100 or so waterfowl guides that come from the US. That just won't happen. With the free trade laws we have, I don't see how its possible to not allow US guides in Canada. I also think it seems a tad bit hypocritical to enjoy the thousands upon thousands of jobs that the Canadians receive in the US every year, but scoff at the small number of US residents being self employed in Canada for only a part time.
