Election News: Harper’s new deep integration plans for Canada!

September 24, 2008

This important message comes from ViveleCanada.ca. It is about Stephen Harper’s intentions to integrate Canada with the EU. So it’s not enough that he wants to more deeply integrate us with the US and Mexico via the SPP/NAU, Harper also wants to integrate us with the EU! If Harper is re-elected, will Canada retain any sovereignty at all? Canadians, please wake up! If we don’t act by ensuring that Stephen Harper does NOT get re-elected, we stand to lose our country!!  Stand up for Canada!!!

Hi everyone,

I’m writing to draw your attention to a couple of election-related items now up on Vive le Canada.ca.

First, we are helping promote a new video based on Mel Hurtig’s excellent book “The Truth About Canada” called “Who Killed Canada? A 2008 Election Primer”. The video was created by John Riddell with Mel Hurtig’s cooperation, and is a unique, fact-filled investigation, rich with information you will never see in the media, featuring Mel, produced and with commentary
by John Riddell. It is no less than a Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) of what is happening to Canada today.

It is an excellent tool in educating voters about the current situation in Canada and the need to take action to protect our sovereignty and democracy.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each video goes to helping Vive, a non-profit organization that exists solely on the donations of our members, continue to pay our hosting and web development bills.

Second, you may have heard that Canada and the EU are planning to enter into a new deep integration agreement.

As reported in the Globe and Mail on September 18, “Canadian and European officials say they plan to begin negotiating a massive agreement to integrate Canada’s economy with the 27 nations of the European Union, with preliminary talks to be launched at an Oct. 17 summit in Montreal three days after the federal election.” The article continues, “…a senior EU official involved in the talks described (them) as ‘deep economic integration negotiations.’”

The text of this deal will not be released to the general public during the election, yet it appears big business has already seen the deal and supports it–meaning that once again, Canadians will not have the democratic right to choose whether or not to enter into the deal, while big business makes up our minds for us.

And if you’d like to send an email to the current Prime Minister opposing this deal, please visit the Council of Canadians website and use their sample letter:

We at Vive also highly recommend that you attend local all-candidates forums, town halls and meetings in your area and ask these simple questions, or additional questions of your own that raise these issues:

1. Have you heard of Canada-U.S. deep integration agreements, such as the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP)? Do you feel that they threaten Canadian sovereignty and democracy?

2. Are you aware that the Conservative government is planning on negotiating a new deep integration agreement with the European Union? Do you support such a deal, or do you feel that it would threaten Canadian sovereignty and democracy?

3. If elected, would you ensure that there was parliamentary oversight of any deep integration deals, such as the SPP or the proposed deep integration deal with the EU?

Together, we can make Canadian sovereignty and democracy a federal election issue. If we don’t, we run the risk of watching even more of our sovereignty given away once the election is over.

By holding our candidates accountable, we have everything to gain…and if we don’t, we have our country to lose.
