Yahoo News-AP: U.S., Canada, Mexico to Sign Accord
*Note the Second Paragraph regarding Tax on Soft Drinks

Excerpt - WACO, Texas - Canada is irritated that the United States is keeping its border closed to Canadian beef and maintaining punitive tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber. Washington isn't pleased at the Ottawa government's snub of U.S. plans for a missile defense shield.

Mexican officials complain about vigilante groups hunting illegal immigrants in Arizona, new U.S. walls being built along the border and the still-stalled status of a guest worker immigration liberalization proposal.

However, none of these vexing issues was on the official agenda here Wednesday when President Bush met jointly with Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin.
