PART TWO OF A THREE PART ARTICLE BY CONNIE
FOGAL, LEADER OF THE CANADIAN ACTION PARTY
Part 2 OF
Meta-Morphosis and Sabotage of Canada by our own Government - Laws, Arrangements
Lets look at some of the other incredible
arrangements our government has made, 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
Public Safety Act, 2002 with despotic powers to certain Cabinet Ministers
3. The Anti Terrorism Act currently under review
4.The North American
Security and Prosperity Initiative (NASPI)- a report released January 2003 of
the project of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives(CCCE) to develop a
strategy for shaping Canada's future within North America and Beyond
Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement signed by Bush and Martin in March
6. 40 Point Smart Regulation Action Plan
7. The Report of
Ministers to the Leaders -SPP- North America June 2005
1. The Canada - U.S. Smart Border Declaration signed Dec 12,2001. Note
John Manley signed this when he was deputy Prime Minister along with Tom
Ridge, US Homeland Security Director. Manley is now the head of the North
American Union Task Force promoting the end of the nations of Canada , USA, and
Mexico as we know them. http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/newsroom/factsheets/2002/sep/smart-e.html
The Canada -US Smart Border Declaration has everything to do with
total integration of Canada into the USA dominated system and control, with
total loss of Canadian sovereignty and independence. Our government through one
Cabinet Minister and his officials committed Canadians to arrangements which had
not been discussed in Parliament, nor presented to the Canadians at large. Some
would say it is treasonous to be making, in effect, fundamental changes to our
constitutional structure without taking this to the citizens. The
arrangements are after the fact being rammed through Parliament piecemeal
without any Member of Parliament making a fuss about the fact of the
pre-arranged agreement between Manley and Ridge, nor demanding that Canadians
should have a say in this. No Member of Parliament was elected on any
platform to create or enter a North American Union which this Smart Border
Declaration is doing. The tragedy for Canadians is that we appear to have no
MP's, nor party with representatives elected to the House of Common who are
prepared to fight for Canadians, or even to inform us. In effect, there is no
opposition in government. The opposition is us, outside of government. This
should not have to be!
This declaration outlines a set of initiatives
called the 30-point Action Plan. The Canada Customs and Revenue agency is
working collaboratively with the United States Customs Service, the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service and Citizenship and Immigration
Canada. The CCRA has the lead responsibility for eight of the initiatives
outlined in the 30 Point Action Plan. Making those eight happen is the priority
for CCRA. The eight are:
- A Single Alternative Inspection System
-Advance Passenger Information/Passenger Name Record
-Ferry Terminal Reviews
-Harmonized Commercial Processing
Away from the Border
-Customs Data Exchange
Targeting at Seaports
The 30 points are:
Identifiers- Jointly develop on an urgent basis common biometric identifiers in
documentation such as (this means in other ways too) permanent resident
cards, NEXUS, and other travel documents. (That means DNA markers, eyeprints and
fingerprints) ( CBC recently reported that this month our Government will
present to Parliament a bill that will permit "chips" being placed in our
passports .The chips will hold untold amounts of personal data, even possibly to
the amount of money you have in your bank account. This chip can be accessed and
read by any one or place that has the existing technology. It has been reported
to me that the Mohawk Indians have been approached by our government to
volunteer to being "chipped" and to have DNA records of them created for
tracking. Chips are microscopic devices that can be implanted in your skin
as easily as on a card. This is no longer science fiction folks. It is
2) Permanent Resident Cards- a secure card which includes a
biometric identifier. (It is the impending legislation that will require all
citizens to be
fingerprinted and eye printed, and to have all their personal
data encrypted on a national card- even human chip implants to track your
location and activity. Many cell phones already do that. Some clothing
manufacturers, and I am told Walmart is one, already have
microscopic tracking chips that remain in the clothes after you leave the
store with your purchase. If someone wanted to, they could track you if you wear
Walmart clothing. Who has sanctioned that?
3) Single Alternative
Inspection System- Resume NEXUS for two-way movement of pre-approved travellers
at Sarnia-Port Huron,and expand a single program to other areas along the land
border. Discuss expansion to air travel.
Processing-Review practices and procedures to ensure that applicants are
thoroughly screened for security risks and take necessary steps to
information on refugee and asylum claimants.
5) Managing of
Refugee/Asylum Claims- Negotiate a safe third-country agreement to enhance the
managing of refugee claims. ( The Safe Third Country Agreement was signed by
officials of Canada and the United States on December 5, 2002. The agreement
allows both countries to manage the flow of refugee claimants. No longer does
Canada make its own decisions based on our sovereign principles. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/policy/safe-third.html
) Did you hear any fuss being made by anyone in Parliament about this
destruction of our sovereign capacity? Or by the media?
6) Visa Policy
Coordination- joint respective visa waiver lists and share look-out lists at
visa issuing offices.
7) Air Preclearance- implement the Preclearance
Agreement signed in January 2001. Resume intransit preclearance at
expand to other airports per Annex I of the Agreement.
The following url shows the Bill C22 The Preclearance Act. I do not know
if the Act has come into force yet. It clearly allows for the no fly lists and
gives authority to pre-clearance officers in special setoff areas at airports to
do thing with persons named. http://www.parl.gc.ca/36/1/parlbus/chambus/house/bills/government/S-22/S-
8) Advance Passenger Information / Passenger Name Record- Share
this on flights between Canada and the United States, including in-transit
flights. Identify risks posed by passengers on international flights arriving in
each other's territory. (These are the "no fly" lists whereby any of us can be
defined as a bad guy and not allowed to fly. Senator Kennedy was put the no fly
list of the US . It took a while to get his name removed. )
Canada's privacy commissioner says about the No Fly lists: http://news.gc.ca/cfmx/view/en/index.jsp?articleid=163059

and at http://www.psepc.gc.ca/national_security/counter_terrorism_e.asp
9) Joint Passenger Analysis Units-Establish joint units at key
international airports in Canada and the United States.
Terminals- Review customs and immigration presence and practices at
international ferry terminals. ( End of sovereign Canadian only decisions)
11) Compatible Immigration Databases- automated database, such as Canada's
Support System for Intelligence, for information exchange, and enhance sharing
of intelligence and trend analysis.
12) Immigration Officers Overseas-
Increase number of Canadian and US immigration officers at airports overseas and
enhance joint training of airline personnel. ( More do it the US way when maybe
we would not do it at all if we made our own decision)
Cooperation- technical assistance to source and transit countries.
Harmonized Commercial Processing-complementary systems for commercial
processing, including audit-based programs and partnerships with industry.
Explore the merits of a common program.
15) Clearance Away from the
Border- integrated trade facilitation through away-from- the-border processing
for truck/rail cargo (and crews), including inland
preclearance/post-clearance, international zones and pre-processing centers
at the border, and maritime port intransit preclearance.
Facilities- under current legislation and regulations create small,
remote joint border facilities. Examine the legal and operational issues
associated with the establishment of international zones and joint facilities,
including armed protection or the arming of law enforcement officers in such
zones and facilities. ( An armed border)
17) Customs Data - Sign the
Agreement on Sharing Data Related to Customs Fraud, exchange agreed upon customs
data pursuant to NAFTA, and discuss what additional commercial and trade data
should be shared for national security purposes. (By sharing financial data,
they can drive anyone into bankruptcy if they want to . Re- read Orwell's 1984)
(Lougheed Martin, a military oriented company has been given the contract to
handle Canadian census data which means under the USA Patriot Act , all
the information about every Canadian is in the hands of the US Homeland
Security. .That body has Orwellian powers with tentacles now into Canadian
homes. At what point will Canadian outrage emerge? )
Container Targeting at Seaports- exchange information and analysis. Work in
with the industry to develop advance electronic commercial
manifest data for marine containers arriving from overseas.
Infrastructure Improvements- joint and coordinated physical and technological
improvements to key border points and trade corridors - dedicated
border modeling exercises. (Easy movement of troops into Canada)
Intelligent Transportation Systems-Deploy interoperable technologies in support
of other initiatives to facilitate the secure movement of goods and people, such
as transponder applications and electronic container seals. (Transponders are
devices that take a picture of you as you drive by and track you - like on
Ontario's highway 407)
21) Critical Infrastructure Protection- Conduct
binational threat assessments on trans-border infrastructure and identify
necessary additional protection measures, and initiate assessments for
transportation networks and other critical infrastructure.
Security- Finalize Federal Aviation Administration-Transport Canada agreement on
comparability/equivalence of security and training standards.
Integrated Border and Marine Enforcement Teams-Expand IBET/IMET to other areas
of the border and enhance communication and coordination.
Enforcement Coordination-comprehensive and permanent coordination of law
enforcement, anti- terrorism efforts and information sharing, such as by
strengthening the Cross-Border Crime Forum and reinvigorating Project Northstar.
(Law enforcement is a crucial part of sovereignty-)
Intelligence- joint teams to analyze and disseminate information and
intelligence, and produce threat and intelligence assessments. Initiate
discussions regarding a Canadian presence on the U.S. Foreign Terrorist
Tracking Task Force. (Canada gives up any semblance of independent
policies. ) ( Is this the source of the bill coming before Parliament this
month that will give increased powers to security forces to spy on and
take action against e mail and websites and cell phones and fax
26) Fingerprints-RCMP to access FBI fingerprint data
directly via real-time electronic link (and vice versa) .
27) Removal of
Deportees- Address legal and operational challenges to joint removals, and
initiatives to encourage uncooperative countries to accept their
nationals. (In other words, Canada will adopt US rules on who is to be deported.
That explains the transition to violation of international human rights by
Canada in the harsh treatment in Canada of the 5 Muslims detained without trial
and without defence in provincial prison without release .)
Counter-Terrorism Legislation-Bring into force legislation on terrorism,
including measures for the designation of terrorist organizations. (This is the
source of our Anti--terrorist legislation - our Bill C 36, and the USA Patriot
Act. It was not Canadian philosophy and policy and tradition that brought this
Orwellian legislation into being. It was the demand from the US, and Canada's
submission to and under this agreement. Canada promised to deliver this.
9/11 was the impetus, the excuse, to do what was intended any way. In both
the USA and Canada, the anti-terrorist legislation is up for review now. The
goal is to make the laws in both countries even more invasive and liberty
stripping, more Orwellian. )
29) Freezing of Terrorist Assets-Exchange
advance information on designated individuals and organizations in a timely
30) Joint Training and Exercises- joint response to terrorism-
joint counter-terrorism training and exercises
Read how the U.S.
Homeland Security website explains this agreement: http://www.dhs.gov/dhspublic/display?content=97
This Canada -US Smart Border Declaration militarizes Canada and
sets the stage for a police state. It is responsible for our
anti-terrorist law which emulates the US Patriot Act. The anti-terrorist
laws discriminate against racial groups, remove habeas corpus, (ie, the right to
be produced before a court rather than arrested, locked up
and the key
thrown away), remove the right to a fair trial or in some cases to any trial at
all. They remove the right to defend yourself. They criminalize
dissent. They revokes civil liberties. They are Draconian laws
sitting there waiting to pounce on lawful citizens when the right occasion
presents itself. Canada's anti-terrorist law is already being applied
against Canadians of middle Eastern heritage- note the 5 Muslims
incarcerated in Toronto upon being accused of being terrorists. Our
judicial history prevented indefinite incarceration without a trial.We had
to be found guilty, not just accused. That protection is gone now.
2. The Public Safety Act, 2002 (Bill C7) grew out of Bills C
17, C55, and C42. This act amends 23 existing acts and implements
the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention Act. http://www.parl.gc.ca/common/bills_Is.asp?lang=E&Is=c7&source=library_prb&Parl=37&Ses=3
The Public Safety Act imposes many terms that restrict civil liberties.
The section dealing with interim orders grants despotic powers to a number of
Cabinet Ministers such that at their individual, sole decree without prior
Parliamentary oversight, approval or sanction, they can impose the police state.
Eight parts of the Bill amend various statutes to provide a new power permitting
the responsible Minister to make interim orders in situations where immediate
action is required (as he alone determines) . For example, the Minister of
Health can require mandatory vaccinations and quarantine.
under The Public Safety Act are exempt from the usual requirements of our law
that are in place to prevent abuse and excess. These orders are specifically
free from checks to avoid abuse or violations of the Canadian Charter of Rights
and Freedoms and the Canadian Bill of Rights These orders avoid examination by
government lawyers whose usual job is to ensure regulations and orders are not
an unusual or unexpected use of authority;and that they do not trespass
unduly on existing rights and freedoms.
The respective Ministers, are:
* Department of Health Act Minister of Health;
* Food and Drugs Act Minister of Health;
* Hazardous Products Act Minister of Health;
Waters Protection Act Minister of Fisheries and Oceans;
Pest Control Products Act Minister of Health;
Quarantine Act Minister of Health;
* Radiation Emitting
Devices Act Minister of Health; and
* Canada Shipping
Act; Canada Shipping Act, 2001<http://www.parl.gc.ca/common/#4>
(4) Ministers of Transport and Fisheries and Oceans.
it is clearer to understand what the gun registration was all about!.
Disarm the people from protecting themselves from their own government , not
criminals. This concept of possibly needing to protect
ourselves from our government is so foreign to the Canadian psyche that most of
us did not see the malevolence of the gun registry program. We became
unwitting dupes to the police state agenda because of our antipathy towards
3. The Anti Terrorism Act - (Bill C 36) Currently under
review to make it even more prohibitive.
4. The North American Security and Prosperity Initiative (NASPI)- a
project of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives(CCCE)launched in January
2003 to develop a strategy for shaping Canada's future within North America and
This url is a must read. It was posted or updated November2, 2005 as
News and Information. It is a discussion paper released April 2004. Here you can
see that the chief executives of the 150 leading corporations of Canada are in
the driver's seat setting out the political agenda to meet its own interests.
Their own language has a flavour of their attitude that they do rule.
Here is the preface to their discussion paper. The bold markings
are mine for emphasis.
"The Council was the 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. North American economic integration is now well advanced and
irreversible, and in the face of global terrorism, the economic and physical
security of the continent have become indivisible.
While the Council's
fundamental vision for North America remains trilateral, we believe that to be
most effective in addressing some of the key challenges facing our continent
today, Canada and the United States must take the lead in developing a new
paradigm for cooperation, one that will increase the security of our respective
citizens and maximize the ability of our countries to prosper in a world marked
by increasingly intense competition among developed and developing countries.
Given ever-growing international flows of goods, services, people, investment
and ideas, this new paradigm must be based on respect for sovereignty while
achieving more effective and mutually beneficial interdependence.
Following more than a year of research and consultation with academics,
business leaders and government officials in Canada, the United States and
Mexico, we are ready to share some of our thinking. Many important questions
remain to be answered, but we hope that the 15 specific recommendations we offer
in this discussion paper serve as a point of departure for debate within Canada
and the United States and as a spur to action on the critical issues that we
On behalf of the members of the Council, we are
grateful to our readers for your interest in the shared challenges facing
Canadians and our North American partners. We look forward to your thoughts and
to working with you to ensure growing security and prosperity for all North

Thomas P. d'Aquino
President and Chief Executive"
Most important is the
CCCE statement that both the Martin Liberals and the Harper Conservatives
support the CCCE initiative for a North American structure that will serve the
corporate agenda. . The CCCE paper states:
"While 2004 will bring
elections in both Canada and the United States, political interest in new
approaches to North America crosses partisan boundaries. Prime Minister Paul
Martin has made clear his intention to reinvigorate Canada's relationship with
the United States as part of a broader strategy for strengthening Canada's
influence in the world. Stephen Harper, the new leader of the Conservative Party
of Canada, has called for a continental "strategic partnership", one that would
link freer flows of goods, services, labour, capital and technology with
improvements in continental security."
So for all those
strategists who urged people to vote Liberal to keep out the
Conservatives, and for those voters who complied, we now can realize the
stupidity in that approach. But most voters did not buy into that lie. In
2004 Canadians produced a minority government precisely because the voters knew
intuitively that something very rotten is transpiring.
The report sets
out five pillars for a comprehensive strategy:
"In launching its North
American Security and Prosperity Initiative (NASPI), the CCCE suggested that a
Canadian strategy for managing its future within the continent should be based
on five pillars: reinventing borders; regulatory efficiency; resource security;
the North American defence alliance; and new institutions.
Over the past
year, there has been an explosion of research and discussion about options for
North America. The intensity of the discussion has been greatest in Canada, but
it has spread into both the United States and Mexico, across academic, business
and government circles. There is clearly much more to be explored, tested and
eventually negotiated, but the immense amount of work done over the past year
has established a meaningful foundation for more detailed discussion of our
Based on all of the work by the CCCE and by many others, this
discussion paper builds on the original framework of the CCCE's North American
initiative, suggests points of emerging consensus and puts forward 15 specific
recommendations. From here, the CCCE hopes to foster further dialogue on the
best options for Canada and on how best to move forward in building a 21st
century Canada-United States partnership in North America.
OF A COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY
Ever since September 11, 2001, there has
been no question that the management of the Canada-United States border must
evolve. The two countries quickly agreed on the 30-point Smart Border action
plan in late 2001, and much has been and continues to be achieved under this
umbrella. Our two countries have been working closely, sharing information,
developing and deploying new tools for managing risk, expanding border
infrastructure and experimenting with new ways to speed the flows of low-risk
goods and travellers while improving security overall.
As the CCCE
suggested in launching its North American initiative, however, much more can and
must be done. The CCCE continues to believe that a comprehensive strategy must
encompass five pillars:
* First, it must move beyond border
management to the true reinvention of North American borders.
Second, efforts to smooth customs processing must be reinforced by a sweeping
effort to reduce the costs and delays at the border caused by regulatory
* Third, and linked to regulatory issues, it must
address issues in the resource sector to ensure that trade flows respect the
twin principles of security of access and security of supply.
Fourth, it must recognize that all of the progress Canada desires on the
economic front depends on a credible reinvigoration of the North American
* Fifth, it must consider the development of
a range of new institutions to manage the deepening of the Canada-United States
These suggestions of the CCCE are being implemented incrementally by our
government . Read the section on North American Defence carefully if you had any
doubts about the points raised in Part 1. of my paper respecting Canada's
complete integration with the US military agenda.
Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America signed by Martin
(Canada) , Bush (USA) and Fox ( Mexico) in March 2005. This is the
political arm complying with its marching orders from the CCCE. Read this

23, 2005 Waco, Texas
Below are highlights of the statement made by
the Leaders setting out the Security Agenda and Prosperity Agenda
and announcing the establishment of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of
North America (SPP) . The statement was released March 23,2005 at the conclusion
of Prime Minister Paul Martin's meeting with United States President George W.
Bush and Mexican President Vicente Fox at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
SECURITY AND PROSPERITY PARTNERSHIP OF NORTH AMERICA
elected leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, gather in Texas to
announce the establishment of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North
Over the past decade, our three nations have taken important
steps to expand economic opportunity for our people and to create the most
vibrant and dynamic trade relationship in the world. Since September 11,
2001, we have also taken significant new steps to address the threat of
terrorism and to enhance the security of our people.
But more needs to
be done. ...
... This work will be based on the principle that our
security and prosperity are mutually dependent and complementary...Also, it will
help consolidate our action into a North American framework to confront security
and economic challenges...
... The Partnership is trilateral in concept;
while allowing any two countries to move forward on an issue, it will create a
path for the third to join later.
Advancing our Common Security
We will establish a common approach to security to protect North America
from external threats, prevent and respond to threats within North America, and
further streamline the secure and efficient movement of legitimate, low-risk
traffic across our shared borders. As part of our efforts, we will:
* Implement common border security and bioprotection
* Enhance critical infrastructure
protection, and implement a common approach to emergency response;
* Implement improvements in aviation and maritime
security, combat transnational threats, and enhance intelligence partnerships;
* Implement a border facilitation strategy to
build capacity and improve the legitimate flow of people and cargo at our shared

We will establish
Ministerial-led working groups that will consult with stakeholders in our
respective countries. These working groups will respond to the priorities of our
people ( I do not think the people are the masses of citizens) and our
businesses, and will set specific, measurable, and achievable goals. They
will identify concrete steps that our governments can take to meet these goals,
and set implementation dates that will permit a rolling harvest of
Within 90 days, Ministers will report back to us with
their initial report. Following this, the groups will report on a
semi-annual basis. Because the Partnership will be an ongoing process of
cooperation, new items will be added to the work agenda by mutual agreement as
Through this Partnership, we will ensure that
North America remains the most economically dynamic region of the world and a
secure home for our people in this and future generations.
... Canada, the United States, and Mexico will work together to
ensure the highest continent-wide security standards and streamlined risk-based
border processes are achieved in the following priority areas:
North America from External Threats
Develop and implement a North American traveler security strategy, and a cargo
security strategy for screening prior to departure from a foreign port and
at the first port of entry to North America.
Develop and implement a North American bioprotection strategy to assess,
prevent, protect, detect, and respond to intentional, as well as applicable
naturally occurring threats to public health and the food and agriculture
Prevent and Respond to Threats within North America
Develop and implement a strategy to enhance North American maritime
transportation and port security.

6. The 40
point Smart Regulation Action Plan - announced March 24, 2005 at a Newsmaker
Breakfast at the National Press Club. (Globe and Mail March 21).
This plan introduces huge changes to Canada's regulatory system. This
plan is the result of another corporate "task force". The plan will make it
easier and faster for corporations to get approval for new drugs, complete
environmental assessments, and the like. On March 21, the Globe and Mail stated
that one of the initiatives is:"A paperwork-burden-reduction task force with the
private sector to reduce the obligations for business to comply with regulations
at all levels of government"
The Smart Regulation Plan will
"harmonize" Canadian regulations with U.S. regulations,i.e., make Canadian
regulations the same as U.S. regulations, which means more deregulation and
fewer protections for consumers. Canada often has very different regulations
from the U.S in terms of things like safety and environment. For example,
Bush's U.S. refused to sign on to Kyoto, and has instituted environmental
regulations that many U.S. citizens believe are a step backward for the U.S.,
and harmful to the environment.(see www.bushgreenwatch.org)
been impossible to find an actual list of the 40 points referred to in
various media reports. However, there are many references to the smart
regulations in the various urls presented in this Part 2..
7. The Report
of Ministers to the Leaders -SPP- North America June 2005
This is an
important url to read.: http://www.fac-aec.gc.ca/SPP-report.PDF
It is signed by three ministers from each of Canada USA and Mexico. For
Canada they are : Anne McLellan, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Public
Safety and Emergency Preparedness; David Emerson, Minister of Industry; and
Pierre Pettigrew, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
They begin their
report by saying that the leaders on March 23, 2005 asked their Ministers to
create an architecture to enhance the security of North America and this report
is a response to that request.
Read this and you will be left with no
doubt that these Ministers and the Leaders are complying in spades to the
demands of the CCCE. They are in fact creating regime changes in all three
countries with the corporation giving the orders. They are in fact dismantling
the constitutional structures of the three countries.
The report of the
CCCE referred to in number 4 of this part talks of the need for involving the
other levels of government, provincial, state and municipal to fully
effect the plan. Reference is made to meetings with these other levels of
government. This fact has a profoundly serious implications: the other levels of
government are complicit in the violation of the constitutional rights and
entitlements of the citizens as the constitutional structures of the respective
countries are being dismantled.
Canada has a very clear division of
powers between the federal government and the provincial governments. The
division is of watertight compartments.. Not one of the provinces is complaining
about the restructuring of this relationship, the emasculation of their
sovereign power, nor of unelected, unaccountable chief executive officers
dictating what the provinces are to do.
The municipalities are creatures
of the Provinces. Not one municipality is making any objection to the
emasculation of their powers.
The constitution of Canada does not belong
to the legislatures or to Parliament. It belongs to the citizens. So said our
Supreme Court of Canada. These parliamentarians and legislators have no right to
do what they are doing. But they are arrogant, and they do not care. Our
system has become rotten to the core.
Our federal government is in
process of reviewing our anti-terrorist legislation. It has not been easy
to ascertain just where they are at in the process. The Canadian Action
Party is taking steps to try to make presentation to that process.
Canadian federal government has indicated it is bringing forward legislation
imminently to allow security forces to spy on citizen use of the internet,
on e mail , and on cell phones. It has been impossible for the Canadian Action
Party to obtain the draft legislation.
The US government on October 13,
2005 published its order made in August 2005 which greatly increased the scope
of legislation regarding the electronic monitoring of telecommunications
providers. The order extends the legislation to cover broadband internet access
services, including wireless and voice -over -IP (VolP) Internet Telephony
services. Universities are required to comply. (See: http://www.lifeboatnews.com Mike Ingram

"The world is not, in fact, ruled by
global corporations. It is ruled by the global financial system." David Korten
"The ability of a party to make a
valuable contribution is not dependent upon its capacity to offer the electorate
a genuine government option. Political parties... act as a vehicle for the
participation of individual citizens in the political life of the country.
...Marginal or regional parties tend to raise issues not adopted by national
parties. Political parties provide individual citizens with an opportunity to
express an opinion on the policy and functioning of government. Each vote in
support of a party increases the likelihood that its platform will be taken into
account by those who implement policy, and votes for parties with fewer than 50
candidates are an integral component of a vital and dynamic democracy. "
Figueroa v Canada (Attorney General) 2003 SCC 37
"Anyone who trades liberty for
security deserves neither liberty nor security"...Benjamin Franklin
“The constitution of Canada does not
belong either to Parliament, or to the Legislatures; it belongs to the country
and it is there that the citizens of the country will find the protection of the
rights to which they are entitled” Supreme Court of Canada A.G. of Nova
Scotia and A.G. of Canada, S.C.R. 1951 pp 32
