A few years ago I began writing about Canadian and American “deep integration”. Not one Canadian seemed to understand what I was talking about. Well, here is just the tip of the iceberg made public. This is all part of the SPP/NAFTA New World Order that traitor Harper is slipping in under our noses in his best Mulroney-esqe fashion.
Although I believe that Harper would slaughter babies and eat their souls if he thought he had the chance of getting away with it, he did not start this; it has been going on since Trudeau, however now the whole “new deal” is finally being unveiled to the frustratingly apathetic, sleeping (unless there is a hockey puck involved) Canadian populace.
Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.
The U.S. military’s Northern Command, however, publicized the agreement with a statement outlining how its top officer, Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.
The new agreement has been greeted with suspicion by the left wing in Canada and the right wing in the U.S.
The left-leaning Council of Canadians, which is campaigning against what it calls the increasing integration of the U.S. and Canadian militaries, is raising concerns about the deal.
“It’s kind of a trend when it comes to issues of Canada-U.S. relations and contentious issues like military integration. We see that this government is reluctant to disclose information to Canadians that is readily available on American and Mexican websites,” said Stuart Trew, a researcher with the Council of Canadians.
“Are we going to see (U.S.) troops on our soil for minor potential threats to a pipeline or a road?” he asked.
Trew also noted the U.S. military does not allow its soldiers to operate under foreign command so there are questions about who controls American forces if they are requested for service in Canada.
“We don’t know the answers because the government doesn’t want to even announce the plan,” he said.
He said the agreement is “benign” and simply sets the stage for military-to-military co-operation if the governments approve.
Cancer can start off benign too! When do the people get to have their say?
Let me reiterate: When do the people get to have their say?
News of the deal, and the allegation it was kept secret in Canada, is already making the rounds on left-wing blogs and Internet sites as an example of the dangers of the growing integration between the two militaries.
On right-wing blogs in the U.S. it is being used as evidence of a plan for a “North American union” where foreign troops, not bound by U.S. laws, could be used by the American federal government to override local authorities.
“Co-operative militaries on Home Soil!” notes one website. “The next time your town has a ‘national emergency,’ don’t be surprised if Canadian soldiers respond. And remember ~ Canadian military aren’t bound by posse comitatus.”
Scanlon said there was no intent to keep the agreement secret on the Canadian side of the border. He noted it will be reported on in the Canadian Forces newspaper next week and that publication will be put on the Internet.
Scanlon said the actual agreement hasn’t been released to the public as that requires approval from both nations.
