Summary and Part one: The Metamorphosis and Sabotage of
Canada by our Own Government: North American Union

The Meta-morphosis and the Sabotage of Canada by our Own


The North American continent is being transformed from
three sovereign nations (Canada, USA, Mexico) into one
regional corporate power base, the North American Union.
Unlike the creation of the European Union, there is no
public  political/ academic discourse on the merits, or
pros and cons of a North American Union building up to a
vote within each nation as to the wish of the people to
join such a union.  Instead the union is being created by
stealth, is already well on its way to fruition, and is
being imposed on us by our own elected representatives and
government with no opposition.

The driving forces are corporate and military. The Chief
Executive Officers of the most powerful corporations
operating in the three countries want this union and have
been working for some time devising their strategies and
goals. Their facilitators are first, unelected officials
and bureaucrats who move easily between corporations and
government; second, former elected officials like John
Manley , former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada; third,
the heads of the three nations, Martin, Bush, and Fox; and
finally, the governments and the rest of the elected
members who apparently just rubber stamp what is put in
front of them by the unelected officials- few questions,
if any asked.

The ultimate enforcement mechanism for the North American
Union is a police state.

The tools for the police state are "anti-terrorist" laws.

Anti Terrorist laws are a ruse to strip the citizens of
civil liberties in order to prevent dissent against the
police state.

The Orwellian justification is "security", "safety".

Part one deals with the North American Union of Canada USA
and Mexico. It is being created by the corporate side
under the North American Task Force, and the military side
by the Binational Military Planning group.

Part Two deals with -Laws Arrangements and Agreements all
of which throw away our sovereignty, independence,  and
our civil liberties.

    1. The Canada -U.S. Smart Border Declaration with a 30
    point action plan signed Dec 12,2001
    2. The Public Safety Act, 2002  with despotic powers to
    certain Cabinet Ministers
    3. The Anti Terrorism Act currently under review
    4. The Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement
    signed by Bush and Martin in March of 2005
    5. 40 Point Smart Regulation Action Plan announced March
    24 2005

Part Three deals with the effect of all this bad law, some
history, and what to do about it.

I am sending my article  in three parts over time due to
its length. Part one is included in this e mail.  I have
included many urls to take you to sources to substantiate
what I am saying.  I continue to be surprised by the
number of people who still refuse to believe that the
scenario I describe  is happening, and who demand to be
taken off my broadcast lists.

The Metamorphosis and Sabotage of Canada by our Own

Part 1- North American Union

* The Metamorphosis of Canada, USA and Mexico  into the
North American Union

Canadian patriots have been focusing on the wrong threat-
annexation to the U.S.A with no voting rights, only colony
status like a  Gibraltar. The real plan emerges. The fact
is that we are now already metamorphosing into something
else- A North American Union comprised of Canada,
U.S.A.,and Mexico.  The goal is an internally  borderless
North America rid of the constitutional structures and
rules of the separate nations that created and protected 
the democratic fabric of the respective peoples.

This Union is planned, directed, organized and coordinated
by  unelected, unaccountable people of  the military
/industrial complex with a few academic apologists thrown 
in for good measure. It is being facilitated by all three
elected  governments. This is the same military/industrial
complex that General Eisenhower warned against.

This group is creating a despotic regime for the pursuit
of their interest (rapacious greed and power) which is
diametrically opposed to the needs and interests of the
citizens in all three countries. Their  plan is to make
all of North America their power base acting in their
interest only. Forget the people

The two bodies (one corporate, one military) which have
been  functioning for some time  to create this treasonous
union are well advanced in that formation.  They are:  the
Canada-U.S.A-Mexico  task force and The Binational
Military Planning Group.

1. The corporate side:  the Canada-U.S.A-Mexico  task

The Canada-U.S.A-Mexico  Task Force is comprised of the 
leading CEOs of the most powerful corporations from
Canada, USA and Mexico, prominent former officials,
businessmen, and academic apologists from all three
countries.  They are: 

    (a.) From  U.S.A. - Council on Foreign Relations;
    (b).  From Mexico- the Consejo Mexicano de Asuntos
    (c.)  From Canada: Canadian Council of Chief Executives-
    Founded in 1976, the Canadian Council of Chief Executives
    is Canada's premier business association  composed of the
    chief executives of 150 leading Canadian enterprises. The
    CCCE was the Canadian private sector leader in the
    development and promotion of the Canada-United States Free
    Trade Agreement during the 1980s and of the subsequent
    trilateral North American Free Trade Agreement.

This task force is currently headed by Canada’s own former
Liberal Deputy Prime Minister, John Manley (who allegedly
seeks to replace Paul Martin as Prime Minister).

This task force was sanctioned by the three leaders, Prime
Minister Martin, President Bush and President Fox, in
March of 2005 at a special meeting in Texas at Bush’s
ranch at which the three leaders  signed the Security and
Prosperity Partnership of North America.

In practice, the elected governments of the three
countries are the willing dupes promulgating laws that
impose a police state in order to enforce rules that
enable the new regime. Some would call this treason.

(2) The military side: The Binational Military Planning

Founded in late 2002,its mandate is to lay the groundwork
for the integration of a Canada -US military command
structure, and the militarization of civilian law
enforcement, and judicial function in Canada and the USA.
Their stated mandate is first to prepare contingency plans
to respond to land and sea threats, and attacks, and other
major emergencies; and  second,  to plan for coordinated
response for military assistance to civil authorities in
the event of  threat  or attack, and  for civil emergency
in Canada and the USA.

Neither of the Task Force nor the Military Planning group 
is  accountable to the US Congress, nor to the Canadian
House of Commons, nor to the Mexican government, and
certainly Not to the citizenry.

1. Let’s focus first on the corporate side, the Canada-
USA- Mexico task force.

See: Trilateral Task Force Recommendations

And: Trilateral Commission website

And: Council on Foreign Relations: Trinational call for a
North American Economic and Security Community by 2010

These Canadian, U.S., and Mexican elites are the same
players who gave us the FTA and the NAFTA. They continue
their work creating a North American union that 
integrates our economies and transforms our total
policy-making capacity away from the public interest and
away from the public good.

This plan goes by various names:
    Deep Integration
    the "Big Idea" (C.D. Howe Institute)
    the "North American Security and Prosperity Initiative"

The plan of this Canada-U.S.-Mexico  task force is to
establish a continent-wide customs union with a common
approach to trade, energy, immigration, law enforcement
and security that would virtually eliminate existing
national borders. The task force released its
recommendations  for a common North American in May 17/18
2005.There was minor reference to it in mainstream media-
no headline presentation. The recommendations include:

    * *  a common security perimeter by 2010.
    * *  a North American Border Pass with biometric
    * *  a unified border  and expanded customs facilities.
    ** a single economic space: (It is this area that would
    destroy any opportunity to bring back the use of our Bank
    of Canada.)
    * * a common external tariff.
    * *  seamless movement of goods within North America.
    * * Full labor mobility between Canada and the U.S.  (Note
    they apparently do not want the Mexican labourers??)
    * * A North American energy strategy -as a regional
    alternative to Kyoto.
    * * Review those sectors of NAFTA that were excluded.
    * * A North American regulatory plan that would include
    "open skies and open roads" and a unified approach  on
    food, health, and the environment.
    * * Expand temporary worker programs and create a "North
    American preference" for immigration for citizens of North
    America. * * A North American Investment Fund to build
    infrastructure to connect Mexico's poorer regions in the
    south to the market to the north.
    * * Restructure and reform Mexico's public finances.
    * * Fully develop Mexican energy resources (Mexico wisely
    kept their energy out of NAFTA)
    * * A permanent tribunal for trade and investment
    disputes.( Here is where any vestige of democratic
    government disappears)
    * * An annual North American summit meeting.
    * * A Tri-national Competition Commission with a common
    approach to trade remedies.
    * * Scholarships for  a network of Centers for North
    American Studies. (To serve the corporations)

The few media references to the task force parrot the Orwellian double speak of 
the task force and politicians. The effect is to trick the people into believing
this process  is something good for us. But if you read carefully, you can 
identify  that the regime change is all about the greed of an elite few. In 
order to manipulate us into accepting the regime change, they pretend it will 
protect us from "terrorists". Terrorism has become the external threat, the 
bogey- man replacing Communism, just as Moslems have replaced Jews as 

From Reuters:

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States, Canada and Mexico
should establish a common security perimeter to guard
against terrorism in North America, a tri-national
independent task force said in a report released on

The countries should police their borders together to help
border trade, allow easier movement of citizens and to
keep out potential security threats, the task force said
at New York's Council on Foreign Relations.

‘If our two borders, the one between Canada and the United
States and the U.S. and Mexico, became a frontline for
security the impact that would have on normal relations
and economic relations would be profound,’ said
co-chairman John Manley, a former Canadian deputy prime
minister and minister of finance."

From All American Patriots News:

"May 17, 2005--North America is vulnerable on several
fronts: the region faces terrorist and criminal security
threats, increased economic competition from abroad, and
uneven economic development at home. In response to these
challenges, a tri-national, Independent Task Force on the
Future of North America has developed a roadmap to promote
North American security and advance the well- being of
citizens of all three countries.

Pointing to increased competition from the European Union
and rising economic powers such as India and China in the
eleven years since NAFTA took effect, co-chair Pedro C.
Aspe, former Finance Minister of Mexico, said, ‘We need a
vision for North America to address the new challenges.’
The Task Force establishes a blueprint for a powerhouse
North American trading area that allows for the seamless
movement of goods, increased labor mobility, and energy

John P. Manley, Former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of Finance said, ‘We are asking the leaders of
the United States, Mexico, and Canada to be bold and adopt
a vision of the future that is bigger than, and beyond,
the immediate problems of the present,’ ‘They could be the
architects of a new community of North America, not mere
custodians of the status quo.’" (My underlining.)

In other words, forget Canada; forget the United States of
America; forget the United States of Mexico. Sounds rather
treasonous to me!!

Let us be very clear here. What the task force addresses
is an economic/legal system in their interest with a
police state to enforce it.

This task force is extrapolating  the globalization
process into a North American unit. Under the mantle of
the WTO (an agreement in its own right,) there is in
process a  transformation of the forces of power in the
world from sovereign national control of resources over to
the global corporate control. It is what they call
"deregulation" and"privatization".  That is why they
called all the agreements "Free Trade".  They meant free
from regulations and controls that protect consumers and
the public generally, including protections from theft of
the commons.

Now the intent is for transfer from global corporate
control to regional corporate control, e.g., European
Union,  North American Union; that is, corporate political
control free from government accountability to electors. 
The North American task force seeks to create a unit even
freer from the vestigial citizen involvement that exists
in the E.U. (Britain and Australia are  lackeys of the
United States.)

The  FTA, the NAFTA, are well known. The Canadian Action
Party and other concerned Canadians  have been detailing
the harm of these agreements for years. CAP has 
steadfastly called for the abrogation of the FTA and
NAFTA. We have always said," Issue the 6 month notice to
abrogate!" The most recent justification for abrogation 
is the U.S.’s refusal to pay back $5 billion  they owe our
lumber industry for illegal duties the U.S. charged.

Despite years of proof of uneven and unfair use by the USA
of the rules of the FTA and NAFTA, including  the unfair
closing of the U.S side of the border to Canadian beef,
the Liberals, Conservatives, the NDP, and the Bloc
Quebecois have refused to call for abrogation.  It is only
in the face of the clarity of this latest U.S. abuse of 
Canada that all of them are  beginning to pretend they are
not wimps or complicit dupes. Still, none of them is
willing to  say, "Abrogate, period!" How much longer are
we willing to tolerate these politicians who not only
meekly submit to being stomped on, but then turn to their
attacker and apologize for being victimized?

Why do they do this? It is because all of their most
influential leaders are members of this elite group who
seek to remove democracy and entrench plutocracy. It is
not a question of what is good for the citizens of Canada,
U.S.A or Mexico. Note that the United States is turning
that $5 billion which has been stolen from the Canadian
lumber industry over to their own lumber barons, not their
general body of citizens.

This North American Impetus is a natural political
extension and outgrowth of all these global economic
arrangements as the greedy financial elite look around for
the best ways to effect their goals. It has everything to
do with the destruction of democracy and the death of 
freedom. These corporate bodies have  no allegiance to the
nation they happen to operate in, or to its people.

Other harmful international agreements include the General
Agreement on Trade and Services, (GATS), the Financial
Services Investment Agreement, (FSIA), the Free Trade Area
of the Americas, (FTAA), the Central American Free Trade
Agreement, (CAFTA). All of these grow out of the World
Trade Organization, (WTO), itself being an agreement that
commands an ongoing deregulation and privatization

The eventual goal is to have all of North and South
America as one regional power block stronger than anything
in Europe or Asia. Fortunately for human beings, South
America has not been the easy pushover that the
corporations presumed, so they have to settle for  a North
American Union for now. (Why do you think Pat Robertson, a
U.S. religious leader, on national U.S. media, and on
Canada’s C.B.C., recently called for the Assassination of
Hugo Chavez, the Leader of Venezuela?)

There exists a North America Bureau of the Department of
Foreign Affairs and International Trade.

The role of the North America Bureau is twofold:

    * to advance, in cooperation with other parts of the
    Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade,
    Canadian diplomatic missions in the United States and
    Mexico, and other Canadian Government departments and
    agencies, Canada's wide-ranging interests in its relations
    with the United States and Mexico; and
    * to promote Canada's broad foreign policy objectives
    within and through the Canada-US and the Canada-Mexico
    bilateral relationships.

In fulfilling this role, the Bureau is organized into four

    * the United States Relations Division,
    * the United States Transboundary Division, and
    * the United States Business Development Division and
    * The Mexico Division

2.  Let’s now look at the second body, The Binational
Military Planning Group. (Source Michel Chossudovsky.

Chossudovsky says the people of NORAD and the Binational
Planning Group are the same .  They operate the same
command. NORAD has essentially been scrapped. It has been
integrated into US Northern Command,  and Canada has
become a de facto member of NORTHCOM under the auspices of
 the Bi-national Planning Group. (BPG).

So, when Prime Minister Paul Martin said "no" to Star
Wars, he did  not really say no. He lied to us.

The Binational Planning Group was set up in late 2002
after Prime Minster Chrétien refused to join NORTHCOM. The
creation of Northcom had been  announced unilaterally in
April 2002 by Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfield who
dictated that the US Northern Command would have
jurisdiction over the entire North American region. 
Canada and  Mexico were presented with a fait accompli. US
Northern Command’s jurisdiction set out in the US DoD
includes the continental US ,all of Canada, Mexico,
portions of the Caribbean, contiguous waters in the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans up to 500 miles off the
Mexican, US and Canadian coastlines, as well as the
Canadian arctic.

Northcom was being quietly negotiated with Ottawa’s
Department of Defence and the PMO.  Under NORTHCOM  the US
military will cross the border and deploy troops  anywhere
in Canada, in our provinces as well as station American
warships in Canadian territorial waters.  The locale for
these discussions is not in Canada, but at the Peterson
Air Force base in Colorado, the headquarters of the US
Northern Command(Northcom) .

Chossudovsky reports that Rumsfeld is said to have boasted
that "the NORTHCOM with all of North America as its
geographic command ‘is part of the greatest transformation
of the Unified Command Plan (UCP) since its inceptions in

When PM Chretien refused to sign on the dotted line,
Rumsfield et al, the military establishment, both US and
Canadian, refused to take no for an answer.  They
immediately created a new name to accommodate the concept
of NORTHCOM and called it  the Binational Planning group .
 It is still operating out of the Peterson Air force base.
 It was supposed to last only for two years but its
mandate has been renewed to spring of 2006.  (Note- look
for a Canadian  election before the expiry date.

The BPG has a staff  of 50 US and Canadian military
planners laying the groundwork fo the integration of
Canada -US military command structures.  The BPG works in
close coordination with the Canada-US Military Cooperation
Committee at the Pentagon- responsible for detailed joint
military planning.

Respecting missile defence, Martin told the press on 
February 22,2005: "[The Americans] were told we will not
participate." "It is a firm 'no.'"

Chossudovsky reminds us that simultaneously, Frank McKenna
ambassador designate to the US, in a contradictory
statement,  told the media " Canada's participation in the
controversial BMD is a "done deal". It's de facto. It was
part of a negotiation process initiated two years ago.

"We're part of it now and the question is what more do we
need?" said McKenna. "There's no doubt, in looking back,
... that the NORAD amendment has given, has created part,
in fact a great deal, of what the United States means in
terms of being able to get the input for defensive

What Ambassador McKenna was hinting at, without revealing
the substance of US-Canada  negotiations (behind closed
doors), is that NORAD is a defunct military body.

So the military side of this treason is waiting for
government sanction in the spring of 2006 after our next
election. Once again the arrogant confidence is at least
irritating if not alarming.

Even though there is no official sanction yet, de facto
sanctions exist as Canada  is participating more and more 
in the US wars.. Now we have more troops in Afghanistan,
and General Hilliard is warning Canadians to be prepared
for  the body bags  returning to Canada. There is
something really wrong with this picture.

In a comprehensive report prepared shortly before the
Bush-Martin talks November 2004, the BPG made
recommendations on: " how the two countries' militaries
can work together more effectively to counter these
[terrorist] threats. ... formalizing cooperation already
taking place on an informal basis." (Statement of BPG
spokesman, US Department of Defence Information, November
3, 2004)

With regard to military negotiations, McKenna knows what
is happening behind the scenes. He was on the board of
directors of the Carlyle Group together with Bush Senior
and Frank Carlucci (The bin Laden family were investors in
Carlyle until 9/11).

Carlyle, is the leading private equity investor in the
aerospace and defence industries in the US and Canada. It
plays a key role in the formulation of US defence and
foreign policy. It has a vested interest in Canada's
integration into NORTHCOM.

Michel Chossusdovsky points out that "Canada’s
participation in the Bilateral Planning Group and hence
the Northern Command implies Canada's acceptance not  only
of Star Wars, but of the entire US war agenda, requiring
significant  hikes in Canada's defence spending. The
latter are intended to fuel the  military-industrial
complex. Canada's defence contractors are supportive of
this process."

Chossudovsky points to  Canada's February 2005 budget,
released on the day following P.M. Paul Martin's
categorical "No" to the Missile Defence Program.
Chossudovsky notes that "an additional $12.8 billion
dollars (Cdn) (over the next five years), has added to
Canada's spiralling defence budget. The stated objective
is to ‘burnish the country's credibility as a global
peacekeeping partner’."

Chossudovsky notes further that the budget  is not meant
to refurbish the country's conventional military hardware,
but rather will be channelled to Canadian weapons
producers, many of which are affiliates of US defence
conglomerates, upon Canada's accession to NORTHCOM.. He
lists some major players in Canada's defence industry:
General Dynamics (Canada), Bell Helicopter Textron
(Canada), General Motors Defense, CAE Inc, Bombardier,
SNC-Lavalin Group, etc.

So we can see that those two bodies, the trilateral task
force and the Bilateral Planning group,  are well
entrenched in process.

The fact is that most Canadians oppose this deep economic
and military integration.

Now the greedy corporations are  staking out a claim on
more and more land in a region of North America  in order
to be bigger, and better and more profitable  than a group
of corporations from another regional block. The European
Union was the first block. There is a rising Asian block.
I am not the first to see the USA attacks on  the middle
east as a means of preventing the Asian blocks from
becoming the most  powerful . The third region is the
Americas. South America has not been an easy go for the
globalizers. So the focus is  concentrating for now on
North America.)

By examination  of the arrangements and deals happening
under our noses but by stealth, we can see that our
worries expressed over the years are coming to fruition.
The globalizers are well  into the  process of
implementing a clear regime run by them, about them, for
them, and enforced by governments. The masses of people do
not count except as cannon  fodder in the wars of conquest
and as  slaves for  the production process .

There  is every  intention  of regime change from
democracy to tyranny. Our governments are already the
willing whipping boys being the instruments of social
control. They have no shame in removing our civil
liberties and destroying our constitutional protections
.This is happening all around the world with the USA,
Britain, Australia and Canada being the most advanced in
the regime change process. It is an outrage and a disgrace
that Canada is now competing with Britain to become the
lowliest lick spittle groveling agent  to the USA led
regime change process. There is nothing good in this
regime change process for the citizen.
