Ken Oplinger - Canada and the United States Economic Integration
Program: Ken Oplinger on Canada and the United States Economic Integration.

Ken discussed the relationship of Canada and the US before 9/11.  There were no border walls in many areas along Canada boder.  For example, a Vermont neighborhood only had a line drawn on the ground to show the US and the Canada side.  Some other areas only had trees as a border. 

After 9/11, Canada became penny haters.  However, Canada is the number one trade partner with the US.  153,000 jobs in Washington depend on Canada trade.  Canadians account for $24 million a year in sales tax generation in Wharton County alone.  Canadians consume daily products from the US such as dairy.  
They also contribute to travel revenues at US airports.  Canada also has a strong relationship with China.
Canada and the US have shown many examples of integrated travel and government.  For example, transportation for border crossing and rail study. 
Another example is the TV industry in the US as most of the Kids shows in the US are from Canada.  The relationship is improving after 9/11 as there was a high level of protectionism in border crossing. 
Our proximity will always reinforce our Integration and keep the relationship positive.
