Skip to comments.Bill paves way for Canada's 'disappearance' (integration with U.S. and Mexico)

Lawmakers in Canada appear to be paving the way for "deep integration" with the U.S. and Mexico with a proposed measure that advances the controversial Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America promoted by the Bush administration, notes WND columnist Jerome Corsi.
It's an issue Corsi has fully investigated for his newest book, "The Late Great USA."
The conservative minority government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is pressing for "The Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement", which would enable a Canadian company to challenge laws in provinces that block the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Murray Dobbin, a Vancouver author and journalist critical of SPP, argued in an article titled, "The Plan to Disappear Canada 'Deep Integration' comes out of the shadows," the secretive trilateral bureaucratic working groups organized under the auspices of SPP are "harmonizing" virtually every important area of public policy with the U.S., including "defense, foreign policy, energy (they get security, we get greenhouse gases), culture, social policy, tax policy, drug testing and safety and much more."
The proposed legislation would allow companies that believe provincial laws and regulations harm their NAFTA rights to demand up to $5 million in compensatory damages for each violation.
When fully implemented, Dobbin argues, "TILMA would allow challenges to the location and size of commercial signs, environmental set-backs for developers, zoning, building height restrictions, pesticide bans, and green space requirements in urban areas. It also would allow challenges to restrictions on private health clinics, halt stricter rules for nursing homes and almost certainly overturn the current ban on junk food in British Columbia schools."
The controversy over SPP broke into the mainstream in Canada last month when Tory Member of Parliament Leon Benoit walked out of a House of Commons International Trade Committee hearing in protest to a leftist professor who wanted to air his objections to "deep integration" with the U.S.
The professor, Gordon Laxer of the University of Alberta, was about to explain to the committee his theory that SPP involves a U.S. grab of Canada's energy resources when Benoit adjourned the meeting and bolted out of the room, preventing the Canadian mainstream press from hearing and reporting the professor's arguments.
Laxer, nevertheless, published his testimony in the nationally read Globe and Mail newspaper.
Laxar has objected to the closed-door meeting roundtables of Canadian business and corporate elite held in Calgary by the Washington-based think tank the Center for Strategic and International Studies, or CSIS, as part of its "North American Future 2025 Project."
WND previously reported two activist groups, the Council of Canadians and the Coalition for Water Aid, are protesting that the CSIS research project involves a massive grab by the U.S. of Canadian fresh water, estimated to be one-fifth of the world's supply.
WND also has reported the CSIS, chaired by former Sen. Sam Nunn and guided by trustees including Richard Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Harold Brown, William Cohen and Henry Kissinger, is planning to present its "North American Future 2025" final report to the governments of Mexico, Canada and the U.S. by Sept. 30. The report is expected to recommend the benefits of integrating the U.S., Mexico and Canada into one political economic and security bloc.
Canadian activists are preparing to protest the third summit meeting of the SPP, scheduled for Aug. 20 and 21 in Montebello, Quebec.
I heard some fellow, perhaps the author, on late-night radio last night talking about this topic. Everyone seems surprised that North American countries are on the way toward merging. But Bush clearly stated it in a speech before he was elected in the first place. Called the “Century of the Americas,” that speech is here on FR somewhere. I’ll go look.
Murray Dobbin is a communist and a nut (though I repeat myself). Nice friends that the folks at WND have.
Bush’s speech “Century of the Americas” laid it out before he was ever elected. When will we learn to listen?
Canada absorbed into the US?
Has anyone bothered to ask the Canadians?
The Bible is right about the NWO. George Bush Sr. use to use New World Order but taught his son never to use the term in public.
Why oh why is this in conspiracy instead of news???

25 pages PDF
Because the idea that Canada (and/or Mexico) will allow itself to be absorbed into an entity mostly controlled by the US is silly.
We get the land and property; the Canadians get the boot.
Definitely a far reaching plan eh!?
Idea??? This whole thing is way past the idea phase - have you even looked at all the links to the documents? Do you realize these meetings have been / are actually taking place - ongoing -real - real people at real meetings etc?
Hey have you heard the rumor that FR is really just a CFR - NWO change tool? Is that silly or what?
Do you think Canadians and Mexicans are going to join a union where the US has most of the power? If you do, you're nuts.
Hey have you heard the rumor that FR is really just a CFR - NWO change tool? Is that silly or what?
Maybe we could just turn the world around and go back a couple hundred years and everyone could be isolationist..... Damn progress, just damn.
But I doubt the Candanians will freely give under to the US and Mexico.
Please send me a FReepmail to get on or off this Canada ping list.
“But I see a hemisphere of 500 million people, striving with the dream of a better life”
Bush needs to let them make a better life in their own countries.
So just shove it down their throats just like the amnesty bill is being shoved down ours.
Maybe we the people need to stage a hemispherical work walk out?
WND is about as reliable as Wikipedia.
At least Wikipedia doesn't push inaccuracies to make a buck.
Glad this is getting an airing.
It will be done . . . eventually over the top of a lot of bodies . . .
but it’s good to hinder it as long as possible.
Speaking of silly, do you really believe the newly created entity will be "mostly controlled by the US?" In the event that you do, could you please send me some of what you're smoking?
I do not think the Canadian sources sighted are credible.
good question. They're ALL put into CT or chat, and have been for two years now.
Combined population of the "NAU", about 442 million.
Less than 8% Canadian, less than 30% Mexican, assuming you credit Mexico with 23 million of our 300 million in population. That leaves 62% American.
Combined "NAU" GDP, $15 trillion. 88% of that is US, less than 7% Canadian and about 5% Mexican.
Yes, I'd say the new entity would be "mostly controlled by the US"!
In the event that you do, could you please send me some of what you're smoking?
Let me know the name of the math teacher that led you to believe that 62% is less than 38% or that 88% is less than 12%. LOL!!!
BIG NEWS Toddster! Math has nothing to do with who is going to run the show. Neither you, nor any of us who formerly lived in the U.S., no former Mexican, and no former Canadian citizen will have ANY say in running the new gov’t. The UNELECTED elites will be running the show, the globalists, “citizens of the world.” Get it?
And how are those unelected elites going to be divided up? 1/3rd for each country? LOL!
Put down the bong. Or loosen the tinfoil. Or both.
Corsi's been pushing his book for two years already? How time flies.
Since about the time that Bush has been pushing the NAU...when he signed the SPP....what a coinky dink.
Corsi gets his ideas here. He used to be a FReeper, you might know. He knows how to sell the snake-oil, and to whom.
Corsi was juuuuuuuuust fine when he outed Kerry.
But since he’s outted Bush and the NAU.....he’s persona non grata....but that doesn’t change the fact that Bush is pushing the NAU and attempting to remove America’s sovereignty, with the help of globalist sellouts in DC, and corporate greedholders....something quislings cheer about.
David Brock was just fine when he outed Clinton in The American Spectator and Anita Hill in The Real Anita Hill. Look at him now.
but that doesnt change the fact that Bush is pushing the NAU
The other two leaders at that meeting are out of office......Bush will be out in January 2009. Will the NAU take over before then? What's the exact date? I just want to know so I can ping you and laugh when it doesn't happen.
I've been on these Corsi/NAU threads for a long, long time. I'm still waiting to see his evidence. One example would suffice. I mean, let's take a look at the SPP. Through my own research (because Corsi never seems to get there--there's your coincidence), I have discovered that it has been working on things such as standardizing civil aviation beacons, cell phone service, making the sale/distribution of energy more efficient, etc. At minimum, one would expect Corsi and WND to tell me why this is so alarming. They never do.
In sum, they serve-up pablum to people who already believe. If an author points to a stop sign and exclaims, "look, a red sign," then I'm willing to listen further. If an author points to a stop sign and exclaims, "look, a conspiracy not to be a green sign," then I expect some evidence or at minimum a half-hearted attempt at proof. Corsi's an intelligent guy. And he's playing his readers for suckers.
What does it matter when Bush gets out of office? His globalist/NAU agenda is being put together by him AND other globalists, who WON’T be out of office.
Corsi’s on record as saying Bush has a secret plan to create the NAU by 2010, or just after his next book, whichever comes first.
I recall giving you dozens of links, rudeboy, two years ago. You wouldn’t read ANY of the documents I posted to you, NOT from Corsi....they were from government websites, and other websites, containing official documents.
At that time, you refused....and you think YOUR PERSONAL OPINION should be what I believe?
Your personal opinions carry the weight they deserve: nada.
I’ve read many many many documents, NOT Corsi....coming out of the White House, governmental legislation, Canada, AND Mexico....along with articles, including those by Corsi. They all add up to much more than what your personal opinions could ever tell anyone.
See what I mean? Just what, exactly, is the globalist/NAU agenda for dealing with Avian flu? I know the SPP has discussed it . . . why should I be alarmed that they have?
I don’t cast pearls before swine....and that’s all YOU are.
You don’t know how to read more than two sentences.
What was at #8? Was it something I posted?
see my post #43. I you want me to repost the DOZENS upon dozens of links I’ve already posted to you and, AND YOU READ the documents, I’ll do that.
But, I’m not wasting my time with someone who WON’T even READ what they’re arguing about.
you’re the one who’s “pointing to the SPP”.
I’ve already said, there’s dozens of documents, bills, and other articles on this.
You won’t read them....that’s YOUR serious problem, not mine.
Let’s try this mathetically. You wish to prove that 2 + 2 equals something other than 4. Fine. You cannot point to material that states 2 + 2 equals 4 and call it proof.
