Does free trade produce truly beneficial results between two nations that have significantly different economies?
Yes, but what if the demand is so strong that it begins to deplete our resources?
Such as what? Do you think Canada would sell themselves into starvation, thirst, or run their factories dry?
What you're saying sounds a little apocalyptic.
There is a segment of the Canadian population that is vehemently opposed to Free Trade, it's always a bad deal.
Problem is that these folks assume that the same benefits will always be there resulting from Free Trade, but don't like the results of reciprocating.
That said, maybe it is time to close the thread.
I would imagine the cost of gas will always go up regardless how much you export. I've yet to see prices drop as more fields are discovered. Oil companies will never drop prices too much so they can turn a bigger profit.
I don't understand what you mean by "regulate"? Is that the same as what we've been doing all along by not taking advantage of our vast wealth?
