Last weekend, the Council of Canadians held a conference called Integrate This! Challenging the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America. The Council of Canadians, an independent, non-partisan citizens’ advocacy organization, has dubbed this free teach-in at Albert Technical High School as “the largest citizens’ gathering to date on the issue of continental integration between Canada, the United States and Mexico”. The Security and Prosperity Partnership, a product of intense lobbying from North America’s richest corporations, pledges to speed up the corporate agenda for continental economic integration by linking it to U.S. government demands for a common North American security perimeter. By fully integrating their security apparatuses with the U.S., Canadian and Mexican governments have been assured market access for their largest corporations.
