Canada's Financial Post has a story lamenting a series of developments said to be clogging commerce at the U.S.-Canadian borders. The story celebrates the fact that Canada and the United States had reached an agreement that allows Canadian companies to participate in U.S. infrastructure projects financed under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, but points to a series of U.S. trade decisions unfavorable to Canadian commerce. According to the FP, the changes threaten to erode the perception of Canada as an increasingly diversified economy with unimpeded access to a North American market of 400 million people. But lawyers take note: the FP cites a recent growth in international law practice in Canada, which it attributes to the "thickening" border.
