Opinion - Election Issues - Make An Informed Decision

The Report, commissioned at the Bush, Martin, Fox summit in April 2005 and delivered to all three, one month later, specifying the initial steps required to acjieve Mr. Bush's fatal vision of Fortress America, recommends the following actions by the year 2010 :- 1. The integration of the armed forces of all three countries under a single command structure. 2. The elimination of borders between all three countries. 3. The development of a common continental economy with a single currency. 4. The adoption of a common North American passport. The concept of Fortress America is terminal folly, in this era of nuclear proliferation, thanks to the reluctance of the U.S. to engage in any negotiations for total elimination of nuclear weapons from all national arsenals and it will precipitate an arms race which can have only one ending: in the unimaginable horror of WWIII. Einstein warned that any survivors from that calamity would conduct future conflicts with sticks and stones. Without Canada's participation, Fortress America would remain a Bush dream and yet the Canadian public, in complete ignorance, is being led along the path of integration by its politicians, thanks entirely to the fact that journalists have abdicated their democratic and moral responsibility to be the eyes and ears of the people. The wrath of politicians and of the corporate media owners is a miniscule price to pay to defend democracy, compared to the perils faced by the young men of my generation in WW2, tens of thousands of whom gave their lives in that very cause, in order to pass Canada's freedom and culture into your keeping. If you continue to break faith with them by maintaining editorial silence on this most fundamental national crisis, thanks to an apparent lack of intestinal fortitude, please ponder the fact that the fate to which you are condemning Canadians by your reluctance to speak out, also awaits your children and gramdchildren. It is still not too late to warn Canadians of the peril they face, but only you have the capacity to do so. The election is only one week away; please consider your responsibility most carefully. W. J. Fisher, Kingston, Ontario. [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on January 18, 2006]
