The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association invited AIMS President Brian Lee Crowley to speak at their Annual Convention recently to speak about the Institute’s concept of Atlantica and the management of the Canada-US border. He began by saying, I am here to tell you the story of a single region, divided only by history and a common border and united by one of two possible futures. That single region is what we, at my Institute, call Atlantica, a region that embraces northern New England, northern New York State, Atlantic Canada and parts of Quebec. And while I am going to take a moment and talk with you about the past and the border that have divided us, I will take the lion’s share of my time to talk about the two alternative futures that lie before us, and the choices we must make together if we are to take the road of prosperity, growth and progress together, especially post 11 September.
