There appears to be a real appetite among U.S. legislators for the creation of a North American trade block, according to the MLA for Emerson.
Cliff Graydon attended a meeting between legislators from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario, and elected officials from 11 mid-west U.S. states last week.
He says American law makers voiced their support for a North American style trading block to counter the Europeans.
Graydon says there didn't appear to be any opposition to the idea from the provincial delegates.
Graydon says there was also strong support from legislators on both sides of the border for better trade harmonization between the two countries.
