The leaders of Canada, Mexico and the USA have banded together in a united front against swine flu, homicidal drug cartels and the economic recession at their recent North American trilateral meeting. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Mexico's President Felipe Calderon and US President Barack Obama agreed to combine their efforts to fight swine flu, which they expect to affect their people once again in the Northern Hemisphere winter. They also addressed the issue of drug cartels that have been responsible for a number of murders, with all three countries pledging extra resources to combat the gangs. However Obama and Calderon were unable to overcome a trucking dispute where the US have cancelled a program allowing Mexican trucks in the country, which saw Mexico hit back with $2.4 billion in tariffs on US goods, both breaching the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The three leaders also agreed to develop a joint position on climate change and cutting greenhouse gas emissions to take to the United Nations Copenhagen summit in December.
