This is the last in a series of things this government has done, from aggressive trade deals to military acts that prohibit Canada from refusing to go where the U.S. wants us to go.
We are the 51st state in everything but name.
And I don't give a damn if our corporations (mostly American or multinational) wants this. I'm sick of them having all the say. It's time we started pushing back.
According to Thomas Walkom:
The vague plans outlined Friday by Stephen Harper for a common border security arrangement with the U.S. threaten Canada's sovereignty. That's a given. Regardless of the Prime Minister's denials, most Canadians get that. What's less well understood is that Harper's plans are out of date. They are part of an attempt to bolster a North American production system that, in an era of permanently high oil prices, can't survive.Stephen Harper should be charged with treason. We never even got a say in this. Everything was done in secrecy.
