According to a Canadian Press news story on July 16, a Conference Board of Canada story paid for by the Federal government revealed that Canadian professionals traveling to the US for business purposes are frequently held up or harassed by US Customs; see Border woes persist. (You won't find this report on the Conference Board of Canada site.) This happens in spite of NAFTA and mutual recognition agreements, and also happens even when all the required paperwork has been completed in advance.

So, please explain to me again how Canadians benefit from NAFTA.
