Patriots Or Poseurs?

Fogal says Martin already hammered down what could be the final nail in the coffin for Canada’s sovereignty when he signed last March along with U.S. president George Bush and Mexico’s president Vincete Fox, the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. The wide-reaching and somewhat vague agreement is set to streamline the three countries’ security and economic strategies. The pact takes the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) a step further by integrating North America’s intelligence gathering, border security, energy supplies, economic conditions and health regulations. Fogal says the deal will firmly replace national governance with corporate rule; indeed, the agreement was well received by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, which had been promoting a similar pact, the North American Security and Prosperity Initiative, since 2003. “It is a very big issue, and if people really knew what was going on, they would rebel,” says Fogal, “because Canada as we know it is going to disappear.”
