Towards a North American Homeland: U.S.-Canada “Cross-Border” Intelligence Sharing, Law Enforcement, Data Collection and Surveillance

Some of the corporate interests that are steering the U.S.-Canada Beyond the Border integration agenda are not quite satisfied with its progress so far and they would like the implementation process to be accelerated. The bilateral initiative which was launched almost two years ago promotes a shared vision for perimeter security. It seeks to improve information sharing between security agencies.

Under the agreement, both countries are moving towards a coordinated entry/exit system and are developing a harmonized cargo security strategy. In addition, the U.S. and Canada are strengthening integrated cross-border intelligence sharing and law enforcement operations. Canada’s own electronic eavesdropping agency is also working hand and hand with the NSA. They are both increasing data collection and surveillance in the North American Homeland.

Contributed by NAUWATCH on Thursday, October 17 at 17:56 (1,551 reads)

When Prime Minister Stephen Harper touted the Keystone XL pipeline in front of a business audience in New York City, his appearance was among events at a hotel that cost Canadian taxpayers more than $65,500, CTV News has learned.

A Sept. 26 event, hosted by the Canadian American Business Council, made headlines after Harper said he wouldn’t “take no for an answer” from the U.S. when it comes to approving the controversial pipeline project.

Harper spoke at a gathering of international business executives at the New York Palace Hotel.

The host usually picks up the tab for its guest speakers at such events.

As a part of the attack on Canadian democracy and the rule of law Canadian police are increasingly becoming politicized, militarized, deregulated, and subject to partisan orders from "above".

Is This Drug Company Taking Advantage Of Canada?
Contributed by NAUWATCH on Thursday, October 17 at 17:55 (1,543 reads)

You don't have to be on drugs to make sense of Eli Lilly's $500-million NAFTA lawsuit against Canada but, as the saying goes, it would probably help. The case is astoundingly dangerous with global consequences. It should trigger an immediate review of the investment "rights" chapter in NAFTA as well as other trade and investment deals signed or under negotiation by the federal government.

Canada Forcing Wounded Vets To Sign Agreement Not To Criticize The Military

Canada Forcing Wounded Vets To Sign Agreement Not To Criticize The Military On Social Media

Rob Hyndman alerts us to yet another attack on free speech up in Canada. The Canadian Armed Forces are apparently forcing wounded veterans to sign a form promising not to criticize the military on social media. In fact, they're told they should "discourage others in uniform." They're also told not to discuss "your views on any military subject." Not surprisingly, many of those receiving these forms are not too pleased about it.

What Would You Barter For A Charter?
Contributed by Dave Ruston on Monday, September 30 at 18:27 (2,393 reads)

In Canada, we have our Charter Of Rights And Freedoms. Not a perfect document, of course, but I believe that without it, we here in Canada would be further down the road to tyranny. Thisnotion forces me considerto the semantically manicured Quebec Charter Of Values.

Fascism And Contemporary Canada. Part Three
Contributed by Robin Mathews on Monday, September 16 at 17:24 (1,909 reads)

The Conservative Government has launched a wholesale attack on the First Nations - in a strange way a continuation of its attack on the environment. At the same time it is hiding from the Fukashima nuclear disaster which may behaving serious environmental effects on Canada. What is going on?

Canadian Conservatism is gone. The present government in power is "a gathering of goons" for whom Canadian democracy is an impediment to be removed on the way to 'a new order'.

Toronto Cop Found Guilty Of Assaulting G20 Protester With Weapon
Contributed by NAUWATCH on Monday, September 16 at 17:22 (1,406 reads)

The Toronto police officer accused of using unnecessary force during the arrest of G20 protestor Adam Nobody has been found guilty of assault with a weapon, a judge ruled Thursday.

Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani, who was caught on video using his baton on Nobody after he was wrestled to the ground by police at a G20 demonstration three years ago, had pleaded not guilty to the charge.

In testimony earlier this summer, Andalib-Goortani said he used his baton because Nobody was resisting arrest

The Crown had argued Andalib-Goortani was overwhelmed by the chaos that day and "lashed out" at Nobody, jabbing the then 27-year-old after he was already on the ground.

Andalib-Goortani's lawyer told court his client had witnessed four other police officers struggling to restrain Nobody before he jabbed Nobody with his baton three times.

But Judge Louise Botham said a police officer "is not entitled to use unlimited force to effect an arrest."

Canada: Prorogation Of The Reopening Of Parliament, Undermining Democracy
Contributed by NAUWATCH on Monday, September 16 at 17:22 (2,039 reads)

The reaction in Canada is strangely muted after the Governor General consented this Friday to prorogue or effectively delay the reopening of parliament until mid October. The fall session was due to commence in mid September. Now it’s been shortened by a month.

This is the fifth time (1) the prime minster has done this type of thing. It’s become a kind of pastime for the current PM. Meanwhile, there seems to be a deafening silence echoing through the empty cavernous chambers or corridors of legislative power.

Banker-Corporate Fascists Push Hard For World War 3
Contributed by Dave Ruston on Monday, September 16 at 17:22 (2,166 reads)

This so called war on terror has now lasted longer that the first and second world wars combined. Perhaps next, the globalist mass murderers will declare a war on horror or something, inundating us with more and more lies to perpetuate it. As the old saying goes, "In war, the first casualty is the truth."

Canada has so weakened its environmental laws that it is “in violation” of its obligations under the North American free-trade agreement, the West Coast Environmental Law association says.

In an open letter released Wednesday, the non-profit legal foundation asks the Commission for Environmental Cooperation to take a hard look at Canada’s actions, saying the government has exposed the environment to undue risk to give Canadian industry an edge over the U.S. and Mexico.

U.S. Economic Hegemony: Consolidation and Deepening of the Pacific Alliance Trade Bloc

In a short period of time, the Pacific Alliance has emerged as one of the leading economic integration projects in Latin America. It aims to succeed where others have failed by creating a gateway to Asian markets and building a Pacific-rim trade deal. The U.S. and Canada are both pursuing deeper ties with the group and have been granted observer status. This is part of efforts to revive and expand their presence in Latin America. In some areas of integration, the Pacific Alliance has surpassed NAFTA. By merging the two together, it could be used to fill the void left by the collapse of the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).

In Latin America, there is a growing divide over the future of continental political and economic integration. Some countries have banded together to resist U.S. imperialism and any attempts to destabilize the region. There is also a move to end the destructive cycle of investment treaties and replace it with an alternative economic structure that better respects the sovereignty of nation states. The Pacific Alliance stands as a counterbalance to some of the other regional integration efforts that are trying to protect against the dangers of globalization. It is designed to signal a commitment to free trade and open markets to its neighbours and to the rest of the world. In many ways, the Pacific Alliance represents a resurgence of the failed U.S. initiated FTAA which was part of an agenda to consolidate corporate control.
