North American Union agenda: Canada being sold out to Mexico and the U.S.
by Allison Wells
As some of you may know, Canada is in the process of aligning its policies with those of the USA. Very quietly. Without public debate. It is all part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP-NAU) signed in Waco, Texas, 2005. This is not a left-right issue — Martin signed the accord, Harper is ardently continuing it. This seems to be a corporate-driven venture.
What does SPP mean for Canadians?
We are in the process of adopting U.S. immigration, security and foreign policy. SPP also commits Canada to supporting U.S.-lead wars on terror and increased military spending. Our military is now led by USA’s NORTHCOM. We now have no-fly lists. We are likely to have to accept fingerprinting and other biometrics. We will be required to treat immigrants and refugees differently.
Our resources will be proportionally shared. Huge areas of the U.S. are short of water. Our government is currently moving toward bulk exporting of water. Oil export will increase (now 63%) due to ‘proportional sharing’.
Lowered environmental and health protection. NAFTA already allows corporations to sue our federal governments when their regulations stand in the way of profit. SPP allows corporations to sue provincial and municipal governments — which is where many safety standards rest.
Loss of democracy — it is intended that Canada, USA and Mexico will merge into a North American Union (NAU), having one currency, the Amero. The Union will be overseen by 10 non-elected corporate CEOs from each country.
Accelerating privatisation of health care and other public services.
We need to consider diverse implications of the SPP-NAU agenda, and their effects for future generations.
If this is new to you, you might consider educating yourself — and your friends and family. Canadians have a right to know what has been is planned for them.
