CentrePort Canada – Winnipeg’s 20,000 acre inland port and trade area – will be the first and only foreign trade zone in Canada.
On October 8th, 2009, The Honourable Stockwell Day, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, and Gary Doer, Manitoba Premier, announced an additional $3.5 million in federal funding for the creation of a single-desk marketing window for the new FTZ. Diane Gray, CEO of CentrePort Canada, announced the dollars as necessary to educate the global business community to the advantages the FTZ will provide international markets interested or currently dealing in the Canadian market.

I see the fear mongering of the 'Chinese' has already begun. Interesting how you worry about Islam and China when you should be worrying about idiots like George Bush.

How is it that a country that sells cheep crap around the world has become seemingly the wealthiest country in the world and is now demanding to be the reserve currency?

Thanks for the post. What do you think about the enviromental laws. Will these FTZs breach enviromental laws? The ability to breach US enviromental laws whilst on USA territory would be a sure indicator of the status of these regions.
FTZ sites and facilities remain within the jurisdiction of local, state or federal governments or agencies.

So I'm not saying that this whole thing is BS. Given the current situation that our once great country has gotten itself into. But I happen to live approx 25 miles from Charleston WV. The two locations that are listed for Charleston are absolutely 100% not Foreign Trade Zones. I personally know people that work at the DuPont plant that is listed and the Toyota Plant that is listed, and not only are they not a FTZ. The address listed for both are not even correct. I also tracked the addresses listed and they are the WV Coal Association Headquarters, and WV Water Development Authority, which are also not FTZ. So every other listing could be correct, and I am sure if you do the research some of these might pan out, but as for the ones listed in WV, this list is, as far as I can see, totally fabricated without an ounce of truth
China is taking control of what they perceive is theirs. China has millions of unemployed young males, guess who they will be sending to work in these FTZ's?
