How Canadians stop the Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement
by Gerry Masuda
The Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement (SPPA) was signed in secret and is being implemented in secrecy and stealth by bureaucratic regulatory changes. SPPA is another important stepping stone leading to North American Union (NAU). The others are the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement (FTA) , the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA).
The key to cancelling the SPPA and reversing the move towards NAU, is to break the corporate media blackout on reporting on SPPA.
The way to get the media to report on SPPA, is to stage a news conference which is too big to ignore and the event would be reported on TV, radio and in our newspapers.
I suggest that this staged media event could be Leader of the NDP, Jack Layton, announcing that the NDP election platform for the coming election would be NO TO SPPA giving the reasons why.
Once the blackout is broken and Canadians learn about the traitorous actions of their political and economic elites, their government and the federal bureaucracy, they will awaken from their apathy and demand further information. Once the Canadian public understands the secrecy and stealth by which we are losing our sovereignty, they will turn on the Conservatives and Liberals and vote to retain our sovereignty.
What do you predict the elections results will be? I predict a landslide NDP victory.
The big question is would the NDP seize this opportunity? The second big question is when?
