Arizona needs to abandon Canamex Highway project

The Canamex Highway is alive and well.

Since the North American Free Trade Agreement went into effect in 1994, we’ve heard the great sucking sound of American jobs going south to Mexico. Soon after, the flight of U.S. companies going to Red China for even cheaper wages was the norm.

So now, tractor-trailer size shipping containers from China are stacked five-high at the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach waiting to be distributed around the U.S.

To the chagrin of American shoppers who can’t find any American made products on store shelves, companies like China Shipping, Evergreen and Yang Ming, clog our ports, highways and railroads, and shelves.

Canamex has been on the drawing boards of the establishment planners for over a decade. The Canadian American Mexican highway is part of the North American Union design of blending the three countries into one wonderful trade-labor zone. No boundaries. No ugly sovereignty, just a big happy family. To expedite this idea, the open-borders-free-trade crowd has a grand plan. Build a great big new port, Punta Colonet, in Mexico, 130 miles south of Tijuana. That would take the load off California ports. Then a highway system could relieve California freeways.

This would be a roadway into Arizona at Yuma. Then a freeway section in Southern Arizona would lead north to meet State Highway 93 at Wickenburg. On we go to Interstate 15 by Las Vegas and on to Western Canada. Pipe dream? Gov. Jan Brewer has a Canamex Task Force, with an executive director eyeballing the possibilities of the plan. (Is that a volunteer position or are we paying for it?)

Arizonans need to realize what Canamex and the North American Union are all about. Gov. Brewer needs to abandon her participation in such travesties. Turning Arizona into a series of truck stops, for Mexican trucks, no doubt, is not serving the people of Arizona. It is not the wise dispensing of taxpayer money. Put Canamex to a vote of the people, and see what happens.
