Economic nationalists demand full public exposure on "Three Amigos" pact
Economic nationalists demand full public exposure on "Three Amigos" pact to sell-out Canadians independence from the U.S.
Edited by Jenn Jones

Prime Minister Stephen Harper, along with U.S. President George Bush, and the Mexican President who are dubbed "Three Amigos" plan to meet in Quebec later this month, in August 2007, to consolidate a deal, that would sell out Canada, and Mexico, to a "New American Union" (NAU). This NAU would be controlled by a consortium of fascist inspired Big Business interests and neo-conservative intellectuals.

"The push under the SPP and NAFTA to serve the corporate as opposed to the public interest explains as much as anyone needs to have it explained our current government's failure and refusal to develop a national environmental policy which would serve both Canada and its citizens," said economic nationalist Maude Barlow in association with the Council of Canadians in from of a Parliament Standing Committee on International Trade, that was held in May 2007.

The following are four recommendations that the Council of Canadians is calling for. We believe we have broad support for this across the country.

We're asking that the Government of Canada cease all talks leading toward deeper integration between Canada and the United States until there has been meaningful public consultation on the issue.

We want full disclosure of a complete listing of the security and prosperity partnership working groups and the minutes of their meetings.

We call on the government to disband the North American Competitiveness Council. Corporation such as Manulife Financial, Home Depot, Wal-mart, and Lockheed Martin should not have a say in shaping the economic policy between Canada and the United States and Canada 's economic, social, and environmental policy here.
