Canada: US Army to Guard Conference
- Military To Crackdown On North American Union Protesters
Secretive SPP confab to be protected by 25km military cordon
Wednesday, July 25, 2007
The US army is to enforce a huge security perimeter around the
upcoming North American Union meeting in Canada this August as well as
cracking down on expected protests, having already shut down a public
forum due to take place close to the event.
The Security and Prosperity Partnership meeting in Montebello, Quebec
on August 20 and 21 is to be policed by American forces, who along
with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Sûreté du Québec
(SQ) have already refused to allow the Municipality of Papineauville,
which is about six kilometres from Montebello, to rent a community
centre to the Council of Canadians action group who were planning to
hold a public forum the night before the confab to express their
concerns about the meeting and the issues being discussed.
"It is deplorable that we are being prevented from bringing together a
panel of writers, academics and parliamentarians to share their
concerns about the Security and Prosperity Partnership with
Canadians," said Brent Patterson, director of organizing with the
Council of Canadians. "Meanwhile, six kilometres away, corporate
leaders from the United States, Mexico and Canada will have unimpeded
access to our political leaders."
The Council of Canadians has also been told that in addition to the
25km perimeter in Montebello, there will be checkpoints in nearby
areas, and vehicles carrying more than five people will be turned back.
A whole host of other Canadian activist groups are scheduling protests
despite the military cordon. According to journalist and NAU
researcher Jerome R. Corsi, the protesters believe that as many as
10,000 people could assemble in Quebec to demonstrate.
One particular activist group, Canadian Action Party, has taken issue
with US troops coordinating operations for the confab on Canadian soil
while denying access to Canadian citizens.
CAP's leader said,"Bad enough that our RCMP and the Quebec provincial
police force would apply offensive Canadian law to prevent a
legitimate meeting of dissenting citizens. Totally untenable that a
foreign army assumes jurisdiction on our land. But this we knew from
the Binational Planning Agreement begun in 2002 that saw Canada crawl
on its belly and permit the USA military to enter our land whenever it
deems necessary. "
"Does anyone still believe that our federal leaders have not thrown
away our sovereignty ? That from Chretien (Liberal) to Martin
(Liberal) to Harper (Conservative), the Prime Ministers of our land
have not been committing treason behind closed doors? How otherwise
would it be possible that a proud, sovereign, and free nation would
see a foreign army on its soil interfering with the right of Canadians
to assemble and to speak?"
Elite lobbying group the Council on Foreign Relations seeded the plan
for a "North American Advisory Council" which eventually became the SPP.
It comes as no surprise to NAU researchers that the latest SPP meeting
will be a highly secretive and guarded affair given that CFR documents
have revealed that the group wants to "establish private bodies that
would meet regularly or annually to buttress North American
relationships, along the lines of the Bilderberg conferences."
Internal SPP documents released under the FOIA have also shown that a
wide range of US administrative law is being re-written in stealth
under this program to "integrate" and "harmonize" with administrative
law in Mexico and Canada, in a similar fashion to moves that have
become commonplace within the EU.
The documents contain references to upwards of 13 working groups
within an entire organized infrastructure that has drawn from
officials within most areas of administrative government including
U.S. departments of State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury,
Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services, and
the office of the US Trade Representative.
During the upcoming SPP meeting an advisory Council created last year
known as the North American Competitiveness Council will meet on
issues including border regulation and competitiveness in the
automotive, transportation, manufacturing and services sectors. The
council is expected to meet annually with security and prosperity
ministers and will engage with senior government officials on an
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is scheduled to host the Quebec
summit which Mexican President Felipe Calderon and US President George
W. Bush also planning to attend.
The highest elected officials within the US, Canadian and Mexican
governments are meeting together with advisory bodies staffed by
senior private sector representatives yet the public are being
forcibly denied any access to the event in addition to a pathetic
blackout on behalf of the corporate media which still ridicules anyone
who suggests the North American Union plan even exists.
