Canadians completely unaware of looming North American Union

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 percent 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 100s 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 percent 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
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
The founding fathers of Canada must be rolling over in their
