Paul Martin [on the far right] after shaking hands with U.S. President Bush [centre] having apparently sold-out Canada to the United States in Crawford, Texas without any constitutionally required national debate on March 23, 2005 via a so-called "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America".
Now, the U.S. has effective control over the Canadian armed forces, and has been also given the right to land U.S. troops in Canadian soil for made-up reasons, like the alleged "Weapons of Mass Destruction" which led to U.S. troops in Iraq.
The prime purpose of the current Prime Minister Harper government is to finish the sell-off of Canada to fascistic interests in the United States. It is notable that both Mr. Martin and Mr. Harper had hypocritically campaigned on the affirmation of Canadian sovereignty during the Federal Election campaign in January 2006.
Media organization elites cover-up the biggest scandal in Canadian
What would you think if it was announced that Canada was to cease as an independent
country as early as 2007? Would it matter to you? Would you want to know who
was responsible? What would you do?
Well, during the last week there have been announcements from at least two
sources that Canada will soon cease to exist as a sovereign country.
The first notice I received was in the form of an Aug. 18 email from Connie
Fogal, leader of the Canadian Action Party. The email includes a bulletin from
the Fraser Institute entitled, "The Case for the Amero: The Institutions
of a North American Monetary Union." A statement near the end of the bulletin
reads, "On the day the North American Monetary Union is created--perhaps
on January 1, 2010--Canada, the United States, and Mexico will replace their
national currencies with the Amero. On that day, all American dollar notes and
coins will be exchanged at the rate of one US dollar for one Amero."
Then much worst news came. On August 30 I received, indirectly from an email
correspondent, an article from 'Vivelecanada.ca' entitled, "Timeline of
the Progress Towards a North American Union". At the end of the timeline
it projected that the North American Union would be created in 2007, three years
before the projection of the Fraser Institute!
You might ask how we got into a situation where our country would be dismantled
without our consent. Well, from World Net Daily we read that "the White
House has established working groups, under the North American Free Trade Agreement
office in the Department of Commerce, to implement the Security and Prosperity
Partnership (also called the North American Union) signed by President Bush,
Mexican President Vicente Fox and then Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin in
Waco, Texas, March 23, 2005". This was done without authorization of the
U.S. Congress or any level of government in all three countries as far as I
am able to ascertain.
Where is all this heading?
Stephen Harper shakes hands with Bush toward the role that Mr. Harper seeks toward his government's sought "transfer" of Canada into the U.S. imperial political-military-industrial complex, under the smokescreen of a "War against Terrorism".
We are heading into a One World neo-fascistic government and a One World economy
where sovereign countries are being systematically destroyed. It's >called
the New World Order and it's been in the works for decades. At the moment, George
W. Bush is the figurehead leader in front of a neo-conservative (fascist) ruling
elite which is the driving force behind the NOW agenda. It is an agenda by and
for the ruling elites. The middle class, the only collective power that has
the strength to fight back against this agenda, if they could ever unite in
purpose, is being systematically destroyed. If the trend continues, the vast
majority of workers will be driven down to the lowest level.
Don't look to Prime Minister Stephen Harper to "Stand up for Canada"
as the they indicated during the last federal election campaign; and fight against
the take-over of Canada via a U.S. imperial "North American Union and to
save our sovereignty. He is solidly behind President George W. Bush. It is even
said that NDP leader, Jack Layton, has formed an alliance with Stephen Harper
- see Jacques Lemieux's article in The Canadian in which he makes his case and
concludes, "A working alliance between Mr. Harper and Mr. Layton is the
only thing that can explain why Mr. Layton has chosen not to apparently rally
Canadians against the clearly reactionary agenda of Mr. Harper."
So who's fighting for Canada?
There is only one party that has a solid sovereigntist agenda - the Canadian
Action Party. David Orchard is also trying to recruit followers in an attempt
to turn the Liberal party into a sovereigntist party. But these political efforts,
even if one succeeds, will be too late. This is because the North American Union
will already be in place before the next Canadian national election. Clearly,
another strategy is necessary if we are to save our country.
Where is the discussion on how to save Canada?
The U.S Embassy in Ottawa, Canada, brazenly boasts about this sell-out of Canadian national interests between Mr. Martin and Mr. Bush in Texas. Elites who control Canadian media organizations have chosen to cover-up this on-going treasonous scandal, and its both destructive and oppressive implications for all Canadians.
The discussion is definitely not in the corporatized "mainstream media".
The mainstream media is an arm of the same elite that is trying to implement the
North American Union. The discussion will take place on the internet amongst concerned
citizens and concerned organizations, on the streets and in your community. It
is the people at the grassroots that have the potential to fire up a meaningful
discussion on this issue. If they don't, we are finished as a nation.
Finally, what does this mean for people in Lumby?
In a nutshell, as the nation goes, so will its people. We will not be impervious
to these high level machinations. Our economy will continue to be corporatized
and those corporations will continue to merge into larger entities. With the
influx of cheap imported goods, small farmers, businesspeople, and entrepreneurs
will be driven under by being forced to compete against larger, more powerful
Unless we wake up fast and begin to unite and pose an effective fightback,
we can say goodbye to Canada and our prosperous way of life.

eschewing further integration with the United States, shouldn't we be building
on NAFTA to create new rules, new tribunals, new institutions to secure our
trade? Wouldn't this 'legal integration' be superior to ad hoc responses and
largely ineffective lobbying to prevent harm from Congressional protectionist
sorties? Wouldn't our economic security be enhanced by establishing a single
