High-level meeting aimed at integrating North America says Council of Canadians
Date: Monday, February 12 2007
OTTAWA, Feb. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - North American integration will be the
primary focus of a high-level trinational meeting scheduled for February 23,
says the Council of Canadians. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and
Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff will be in Ottawa to meet with
Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay, Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day,
Trade Minister David Emerson and their Mexican counterparts.
"While recent media reports have claimed that the meeting will focus on
border security," says Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of
Canadians, "we know that the goal of this meeting is to advance a much larger
corporate-led agenda for North American integration - something our government
has been very secretive about."
