North American Union & Canada
Not too many people in Canada, the US or Mexico know very much about the North American Union simply because it seems like it is being kept out of the media. But the implications for our three countries are dreadful. It threatens the sovereignty of our countries. To me as a Canadian the North American Union seems like a continuation of American Manifest Destiny which led to the war of 1812.
Here in this video Lou Dobbs speaks about the Orwellian brave new world of the North American Union.
In this video you will see that on November 20, 2007 the speaker of the Manitoba legislature said that Manitoba is taking a major role in the development of a mid continent trade corridor called the North American SuperCoridor Coalition (NASCO). You will also see both Harper and Bush deny the existence of the North American SuperCoridor Coalition (NASCO) at the Security and Prosperity Partnership Summit on Aug. 21, 2007 at Montebello, Quebec. The province of Manitoba, the city of Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Airport Authority are members of the North American SuperCoridor Coalition (NASCO).

On Sunday, September 7, 2008 Stephen Harper the Conservative Prime Minister of Canada, with a minority government, called a snap election to be held on Oct 14, 2008. Earlier in 2008 Harper had a bill pass, with the approval of the opposition that prevented a political party from calling a snap election before the four year term is up (with wiggle room). Harper presented this bill to the House of Commons himself. So for Harper to be calling a snap election now he must think it is either now or never. Harper would not be able to force the North American Union on Canada without a majority government.
Implications of the North American Union
If the North American Union is forced upon us it will threaten the sovergty of our three countries. The US administration will have more access to Canadian natural resources. Mexicans will be streaming over the Rio Grand, legally. Both McCain and Palin made threats towards both Iran and Russia during their acceptance speaches. If they are elected in November and make war on Iran and Russia they will need to empose a military draft. If the North American Union is forced on us both Mexicans and Canadians will be subject to a US military draft. But in this forum thread while talking about the North American Union AWCheney says "The sad fact is that both the Republican AND Democratic leadership of our country (meaning, of course, that I am in the U.S.) have been complicit in this." http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/7640
A solution to prevent the North American Union
Seeing "both the Republican AND Democratic leadership", as AWCheney says, have been complicit in the North American Union, a way to avoid the North American Union is to prevent a Canadian majority government on October 14, 2008. Canada does not need an American puppet with a majority government in Ottawa.
The New Democratic Party of Canada is concerned about Canadian sovereignty http://www.ndp.ca/platform/otherpriorities/thenorth
The Green Party of Canada does not endorse the Security and Prosperity Partnership or the North American Union. http://www.greenparty.ca/en/policy/documents/deeper_look_spp
The Green Party of Canada also has a petition for Canadians to sign opposing both the Security and Prosperity Partnership and the North American Union that will be sent to Harper, Bush and Calderon. https://secure.greenparty.ca/spp.php
For the last 3 weeks I have been trying to find out what the Liberal Party of Canada's stance is regarding the North American Union. They keep telling me they will get back to me. I will edit this if and when I receive an answer.
So if you are voting in the Canadian election on October 14th you may want to take on Danny William's ABC policy, Anything But Conservative. Vote strategically so the Conservatives don't take the riding you vote in.
Edit Oct. 12 2008 - For over a month I have been trying to find out what the Liberal Party of Canada's stance is regarding the North American Union, without a definite answer. So today I visited the Liberal riding office but was told they'd have to contact the Liberal head office. I'd said I'd wait while he phoned the head office but again I was told that someone would get back to me by tonight. I will post again tomorrow whether or not I get an answer tonight.
I have no doubt that a Harper majority government would force the North American Union on Canadians after watching this video with Harper's talk at the Council of Foreign Relations http://www.cfr.org/publication/14255/conversation_with_stephen_harper_video.html
But even with a minority Harper governament the North American Union may still be forced on Canadians if some Liberals vote to pass it. I say this because John Manley, who held several senior portfolios in the Canadian Liberal government was a member of the Council of Foreign Relations Task Force that released the report "Building a North American Community".
Quotes from this web site http://www.eagleforum.org/column/2008/apr08/08-04-16.html "The Council on Foreign Relations published a major report on May 17, 2005, only two months after the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) was announced by President Bush, Mexico's Vicente Fox, and Canada's Paul Martin in Waco on March 23, 2005." and "The CFR report explains that the three SPP amigos at Waco "committed their governments" to "Building a North American Community" by 2010 with a common "outer security perimeter," "the extension of full labor mobility to Mexico," allowing Mexican trucks "unlimited access," "totalization" of illegal aliens into the U.S. Social Security system, and "a permanent tribunal for North American dispute resolution."
So it seems like the former Liberals Paul Martin and John Manley both endorse the North American Union. And from these two recent new releases both "Liberal continentalist Anne McLellan" and Raymond Chrétien also endorse the NAU.
October 1, 2008 - Our Sovereignty Secretly at Risk Biggest voter issue off media's radar? Canada's stealthy 'integration' with US. Quote "Author Silver Donald Cameron says of the "Security and Prosperity Partnership": "The SPP is the new name for the old American project of Manifest Destiny -- absolute control over the whole continent."
October 04, 2008 - Canada will be Lost if you Vote for the Tories: Prime Minister Harper officially endorses North American Union. Quote - "A terrorist is broadly defined by the architects of the North American Union, as any individual or group which opposes the New World Order agenda."
So if the Liberals also endorse the North American Union then that just leaves the New Democratic Party of Canada and the Green Party of Canada that are Canadian national parties that are concerned about Canadian sovereignty. I will edit this tomorrow whether I get a reply from the Liberals or not.
Edit Oct. 13 2008 - Last night while I was at a family Thanksgiving dinner I received a phone call from the Liberal Party. I think the girl's name was Vickie Martinez that left this message, "There is no plan in the Liberal Party to implement the NAU. And there is no intention in Mr. Dion endorsing the North American Union. There is a commitment to ensure Canadian integrity, autonomy and Canadian interests are protected. So there's no plan to amalgamate currencies, borders, security or any economic integration. Canada will remain independent and autonomous 100 percent. So that is the position of the Liberal Party. Mr. Dion will not implement the NAU."
That is good news and something to be thankful for. It looks like the only way the North American Union will be forced on Canada is with a Harper Conservative majority government. So tomorrow on election day an ABC policy, Anything But Conservative is still the best way to go if you are concerned with Canadian sovereignty.
Edit Oct. 15 2008 - Well Harper's Conservatives got another minority government yesterday. So that should stop the North American Union for another term.
Edit June 2011 - Harper's Conservatives got their majority government as of May 4, 2011 which I am not looking forward to. You might want to follow what Harper's government does in the next four year from http://www.vivelecanada.ca/
