Is Canada Joining the EU?

The Canada-European Union Trade and Investment Enhancement Agreement will include provisions on "regulatory co-operation" (reducing differences in industry regulations) and "Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications." !!!

Meanwhile, we have 50 different regulatory bodies, and 50 different sets of professional qualifications (I'm looking at you, State Bar Associations). That combined with our current financial excellence, and our tendency for cultural disputes, I can see why they wanted to hitch themselves to a brighter star.

When Mexico starts using Euros I'm going emigrate so I can send home remittances to the rest of the Bloc.
