We should have known

The full contents of the Buy American giveaway have now been released (warning: PDF). And for those worried that Canada may have done far too well in permanently trading away provincial procurement powers for 11 days' worth of access to U.S. stimulus funding, have no fear - because the Cons managed to get far less than that.

That's right: while the agreement was announced February 5, it doesn't actually take effect until today. Which means that it actually grants Canada partial access to a grand total of...one day of U.S. program funding.
