Integrate This! SPP Watch Update

SPP Watch

SPP WATCH is a new feature of our Integrate This! website, devoted to challenging the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), an executive-level pact between the governments and corporate sectors of Canada, the United States and Mexico, which has never been debated publicly or voted on in any of the three countries. There are over 300 initiatives in the SPP aimed at harmonizing North American policies on food, drugs, security, immigration, refugees, manufacturing, the environment and public health. But media reports often fail to link regulatory changes designed to move the SPP forward back to the broader goal of continental economic and security integration. SPP WATCH will make those links. As well as regular SPP updates, we will continue to post new reports, interviews and multimedia presentations critical of what’s often called the “deep integration” of North America. The site is updated regularly so visit often.
