Arrow Canadians Completely Unaware of Looming North American Union

Quote:
In just over a month’s time, on August 20, the most powerful president in the world will be arriving in Montebello, Quebec for a two-day conference. President George W. Bush will be meeting with Stephen Harper and their Mexican counterpart, Felipe Calderon. So far, the silence from the Canadian and American media has been deafening.

Talk to 90% of people on the street and they won’t know about this upcoming conference, and if by a slim chance they do, they won’t know the purpose of the meeting or why the leaders of Canada, United States and Mexico are meeting in the dog days of summer under what amounts to a veil of secrecy.

So, what’s this upcoming conference all about, and why are the newspapers, radio and television keeping silent about it?

The purpose of the upcoming conference is to ratify the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, which was initiated by Bush, Martin and Fox in 2005 in Waco, Texas. Essentially, this so-called ‘partnership’ will result in what the politicians refer to as ‘continental integration’-newspeak for a North American Union- and basically a harmonization of 100’s of regulations, policies and laws.

In layman’s terms, it means that once this ‘partnership’ has been ratified which is a fait accompli; we will be following in the footsteps of the European Union. It will mean that Canada will become part of the North American Union by 2010, and that our resources, agricultural, health and environment issues, to name a few, will be controlled not by Canada, but by the government of the North American Union.

A huge ‘NAFTA’ highway, one quarter of a mile wide, is already being built in Texas, where private land is being expropriated, and will eventually reach the Manitoba border.

Water will be the ‘issue’ of this century, as more than 25 states in the U.S. are currently in desperate need. Where do you think they will get the water they need?

The United States is already guaranteed 60% of our natural gas resources from NAFTA, which mean that even during emergencies when we need energy, we will have to import it, while we are forced to export gas to the U.S. This is just one example of how Canada is being shortchanged, and it’s only going to get worse.

Why has there been absolutely NO public consultation on the biggest issue (North American Union) facing Canadians since Confederation? Why isn’t Guy Lauzon, our local MP for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry, holding town hall meetings, bringing in cabinet ministers and explaining how the emerging North American Union will affect our Canadian way of life? Ask the citizens of Canada for their feedback. Isn’t that how democracy is supposed to work?

Folks, I suggest that Mr. Lauzon isn’t even aware of the SPP or the North American Union, which explains why the Conservative government has denied all Canadians information to which they are entitled. If he does have something to say about it, then let him raise the issue in our riding.

Furthermore, the example of the North American Union illustrates that our government claims to be democratic, but in fact, does it act like one, or does it prefer to make the big decisions at committee level behind closed doors, while masking its real intentions?

The ratification of the SPP, and the emergence of the North American Union have been organized entirely by government committees and private enterprise. I refer readers to my website at Reality Check

for further information on the North American Union.

If our citizenry allows the North American Union to come into existence, then our way of life will change drastically, for the years to come. With privatization of our resources, increased foreign ownership, and a Canadian government with less and less authority, our children and grandchildren will be come ‘North Americans’ and our quality of life will drastically decline.

The founding fathers of Canada must be rolling over in their graves.

My understanding of the SPP is that it sets up a framework and is also a forum for Canada, the US and Mexico to discuss common concerns regarding economics, security and health issues. For example, making sure everyone is on the same page if a flu pandemic ever occurs in order to contain it in all three countries as quickly as possible.

This August's meeting isn't about ratifying the SPP as there is nothing to ratify since it isn't a treaty. I think the point of this meeting is to draw attention to it so that they can increase participation by business leaders and professionals.

That it would establish some kind of "North American Government" by 2010 that would supplant our own is nonsense.

First off, the US is already guaranteed not only 60% of our natural gas, but also 35% of our water, under NAFTA. So they are definitely not going after that...they already have it.

Secondly, technologically and economically speaking, a North American Union wouldn't be so bad. With our strong dollar, a single currency (at least between the US and Canada.....Mexico is not currently in a position to consolidate their currency) would make everything so much easier.

In terms of technology, opening up Canada to the major US telecom companies would be a huge benefit to the consumer. Rogers, Bell and Telus would be no more, and we wouldn't be held hostage to ridiculous monthly rates. The CRTC would have to find a way to lighten up, while still perserving our unique Canadian heritage. However, there is nothing better than spending a Sunday watching NFL on ESPN, while TiVo-ing all your other important programs. Hell, we might even see the iPhone! Yet, I still enjoy the Rick Mercer Report, while sipping my double-double from the closest Tim Hortons.

zoziw, I fully agree. A NAU would most definitely strengthen our borders, and would help all tree nations comunicate in times of distress. Security-wise, a NAU is a very smart, safe idea. National agencies would draw information from a single database, and integration of law enforcement and military personel would be greatly improved.

Also, under any "NAU," health would be controlled at the provincial or state level. Remember, a North American Union does not mean we are joining the United States, Canada is and will always be soveign territory.

In any event, this will never happen by 2010, and I'm confident most of us won't even see this in our lifetime. Mexico would need to cooperate, and, while the governments of both Canada and the United States may be in favor of such a plan, we are still a democracy and many citizens' views would have to change in order for such a durastic proposal to be implemented.

I'm with beachboy on this one.

It is a done deal anyway after NAFTA and a good thing for North America.

We have attached a detailed bill and demand payment in full of $269,352 within 30 days."

Apparently you can't read:

"Also, under any "NAU," health would be controlled at the provincial or state level. Remember, a North American Union does not mean we are joining the United States, Canada is and will always be soveign territory."

Especially the part about health care remaining the responsibility of the province. Making mountains out of mole hills again are we?

"After careful examinations and many hearings, this government had decided that the private sector can more effectively deliver health care to the residents of our great province. As such we will be introducing a bill phasing out provincial health care to be replaced by private insurers. The residents of Alberta will be better served as they can now choose the level of care they require and that best suits them.

This is a great day for Albertans and we also announce at this time a one time health care rebate of $100 per person."

I see. When confronted with the truth, we now make up what suits us? Neat.
