    Canada, U.S. and Mexico Leaders to Meet in Quebec for North American Union Talks
    Written by Staff
    Saturday, 16 June 2007
    Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will play host to Mexico President Felipe Calderón and U.S. President George W. Bush later this summer as the three North American leaders put their heads together in a Quebec resort to discuss their ongoing plans to closely integrate the continent.

    Founded in 2005 by U.S. President Bush and mired in controversy after it was discovered that the three leaders were meeting in secrecy, the official purpose of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America was created in an effort to secure the continent against the threat of terrorism and to enhance the security, competitiveness and quality of life of Canadians, Mexicans and Americans.

    Critics of the plan warn that a North American union is nothing more than "deep integration" and would erode the sovereignty of the nations involved. They suggest that such a union will lead to an integrated currency system similar to the European Union's Euro.

    As more is learned about the initiative, more are denouncing it as a serious threat to Canada's nationhood. The Council of Canadians and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives are actively campaigning against such a union as is Canada's Green Party and the NDP.

    The summit will take place on August 20 and 21 in Montebello, Quebec at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello resort.

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper in a news release announcing the upcoming summit said, “We share a continent with the United States and Mexico, and our people, our economies and our security are closely interconnected".

    Don,
    I am surprised that they, without anyone elses aprovale can persue this and make it happen. What happened to our congress and the electorate? Can we be sold down the river this easily? Kirk

    Kirk,

    You're right on about things being done in secrecy.
    The more we, the electorate, allow it to continue, the more will be done in secret. The answer is that we must let congress know that we ain't buying into that crap. We can not become complacent, hoping that everything will be handled responsibly, cause it won't. We need to keep the administration honest.
    Another example of the doing things in secret was Kennedy's crafting of the immigration bill in secret, then springing it on the Senate floor without anyone ever hearing about it.
    It's up to you and me baby..Grins
    I still owe you a reply on your last PM.

    Take care,

    Don
