"The leading proponent of free trade in this hemisphere is now Canada. Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper thought The Summit of America’s should have focused more on free trade than on US-Cuba relations. Canada has recently implemented free trade pacts with Costa Rica and Chile. Deals with Colombia and Peru are now before Parliament. The Harper government is in a hurry to see the Colombia deal passed by June."
