OTTAWA - Korean cars for Canadian cows is just part of the free trade deal Prime Minister Stephen Harper secured with South Korea on Tuesday.

The deal's been in the works for almost a decade and now that it's been officially announced - even without full details - many industries are already celebrating.

Ron Bonnett, head of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, is thrilled with the prospects of Canadian grain growers having significantly greater access to the large and growing South Korean market - where more than 70% of food products are imported.

"South Korea is a very sophisticated market," Bonnett said. "This is a big win for us."

I drive a Toyota with just about a half million kilometers on it. The engine will outlast the car. The last North American-built engine with a near or better lifetime was Chrysler's slant six. If domestic quality was as good as or better than Asian quality (without the rust) Ford wouldn't have a thing to worry about.

CN and CP liked the one invoice one cheque idea of days gone by and are making a strong point as $8billion of hard GDP goes to waste.
