Canada and Mexico: Changing Neigbors

Video: The nations to the north and south of us, our partners in NAFTA, have also experienced major elections. In Canada the incumbent Liberal prime minister Chretien won a stunning victory, although almost all of Western Canada repudiated him. In Mexico the establishment party, which had been in power for 72 years, ever since the end of the Mexican Revolution, lost the election. A new party and a new charismatic leader named Fox took over and promised to reform everything. How will these changes play out? With an economic union how will they effect the United States?
