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
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
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 www.realitycheck.typepad.com
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.
