From Rene re; border jam-up as excuse for border exchanges
“There are all kinds of devices invented for the protection and preservation of countries; defensive barriers, forts, trenches and the like…
But prudent minds have as a natural gift one safeguard which is the common possession of all and this applies especially to the dealing of democracies. What is this safeguard?
This you must preserve, this you must retain. If you can keep this, you need fear no harm.”
Demosthenes (384 BC-322 BC)

NEWS: Trew says US agents in Canada under new border deal is ‘worrisome’
|By Brent Patterson, Tuesday, November 29th, 2011|
The Toronto Star reports, “Armed U.S. police officers will for the first time be allowed to operate in Canada along with the RCMP as part of far-reaching changes in Canadian-American border operations to be unveiled next week by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama.”
“In contrast to the silence from Canadian negotiators, some U.S. officials have been open about what the new reality at the border will look like in the years ahead. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder revealed last fall that the deal will authorize Canada and the U.S. to designate officers who can take part in police investigations on both sides of the border. …The model for the joint policing program is the Shiprider project, a three-year-old plan under which the RCMP and U.S. Coast Guard join forces and ride in each others’ vessels when patrolling boundary waters. …(Shiprider) requires a Canadian officer to be in charge when the team of mixed U.S. and Canadian police are operating in Canada, and vice-versa on the American side.”
“Stuart Trew, trade campaigner with the Ottawa-based Council of Canadians, said further integration of Canada and U.S. police operations is worrisome at a time when Canadians are still waiting for the establishment of controls recommended (by the Arar Commission) on information-sharing by Canadian police and intelligence agencies. ‘The mechanism for holding the U.S. agents accountable is vague,’ he said of the joint policing project included in the border deal. ‘It’s difficult to know how you would file a complaint, for example, against a U.S. agent and whether there is any accountability in that respect.’”
“Besides security, the agreement expected to be announced in Washington on Dec. 7 will cover a wide range of measures on border infrastructure, harmonized product standards, intelligence-gathering and commercial transport.”

WATCH: American Officers To Police Canada- NAU
May 30, 2009
On May 27th Peter Van Loan, (former) Minister of Public Safety for Canada, announced that he signed an agreement that will allow Americans to police on Canadian soil and allows Canadians to do the same. He said that “the agreement should not be looked upon as Americans encroaching on Canadian jurisdiction because it is a joint effort between the two countries
They claim this new agreement started as a pilot program where they successfully stopped some illegal shipments of tobbaco and marijuana.. no mention of stopping any terrorists though, just those two pesky plants. As a result of their successfull busts together we can now look forward to,
– Foreign officials policing on Canadian soil
– Harmonized database with the United States
– Integrated Border Security For North America
– RFID & Biometric equipped Drivers licence and passports
– 2 Tier border system using YOUR threat assessment profile
– New Powers to the Ministry of Transportation to gather public information about YOU to build your threat assessment profile
– Integration of this ID framework into the global ID framework headded up by The United Nations ICAO PKI with the private sector developing the software that will run it all. (Global ID Integration)
– Adopting an ID system demanded by WHTI, an American Law developed by Homeland Security and the 9/11 Commission and we all know how accurate the 9/11 commission was- so lets now base our new “agreements” off of their bad data and make the tax payers pay for the whole thing!

VIDEO: ‘You, Me, and the S.P.P: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule’.
WATCH TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp5HOLvKn2I
What do secrecy, police provocateurs, an assault on democracy and infringements on citizens’ rights have in common? The Security Prosperity Partnership.
‘You, Me, and the S.P.P’ is a feature length documentary which exposes the latest manifestation of a corporatist agenda that is undermining the democratic authority of the citizens of North America. Two processes, the Security Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and the Trade Investment Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) are rapidly eroding and eliminating standards, civil liberties, regulatory systems and institutions put in place over generations through the democratic process. Proponents of the SPP say that it is needed to keep trade flowing. Opponents say, not only will it undermine the democratic authority of citizens, it threatens the sovereignty of the three NAFTA nations through the integration of military, security structures and regulatory regimes.
Here are a few quotes from the film.
“… after the shock of Sept 11 … that crisis was expertly manipulated by our political leaders to push through a range of policies they actually had wanted to push through before Sept 11, but didn’t have the political conditions that made that possible.” – Naomi Klein, Canadian award-winning journalist, author of ‘the Shock Doctrine’
“…if we go along with the Americans on their military, on their human rights, on their Patriot Act, on immigration and refugee policy, on energy, on all kinds of regulations over pesticides or whatever, then they will allow us access to their markets.” – Gordon Laxer, Director, The Parkland Institute, Alberta
“… what the SPP really represents is a parallel government, so that the important decisions are either made outside of parliament and outside of legislatures or they make it impossible for those kinds of decisions to be made in those legislative bodies, so that democracy is slowly being gutted.” – Murray Dobbin, Canadian author, journalist
“…take your mask off brother…. No, no, no, put the rock down man, put the rock down, this is our line! – Dave Coles, President Communications Energy and Paperworkers union.

As early as January of 2005, high-ranking officials were discussing the best way to sell the idea of North American “integration” to the public and policymakers while getting around national constitutions. The prospect of creating a monetary unit to replace national currencies was a hot topic as well.
Some details of the schemes were exposed in a secret 2005 U.S. embassy cable from Ottawa signed by then-Ambassador Paul Cellucci. The document was released by WikiLeaks on April 28. But so far, it has barely attracted any attention in the United States, Canada, or Mexico beyond a few mentions in some liberty-minded Internet forums.
Numerous topics are discussed in the leaked document — borders, currency, labor, regulation, and more. How to push the integration agenda features particularly prominently.
Under the subject line “Placing a new North American Initiative in its economic policy context,” American diplomatic personnel in Canada said they believed an “incremental” path toward North American integration would probably gain the most support from policymakers. Apparently Canadian economists agreed.
The cable also touts the supposed benefits of merging the three countries and even mentions what elements to “stress” in future “efforts to promote further integration.” It lists what it claims is a summary of the “consensus” among Canadian economists about the issues, too.
