Public forums denied on upcoming SPP Summit
By: Patrick Wood, The August Review
At least two highly visible citizen’s organizations that intend to expose the activities of the Security and Prosperity Partnership may have been effectively shut down for the upcoming SPP Leaders Meeting in Montebello, Quebec on August 20-21.
The Council of Canadians, after renting a public facility in the Municipality of Papineauville (about 4 miles from Montebello), were bluntly informed by the hall’s management that the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), SQ (Security Quebec) and the U.S. Army will not allow their meeting even though it is scheduled on the day before the SPP meeting!

In fact, these security officials allegedly declared that they intend to enforce a 25 kilometer (about 15 miles) blackout around the Chateau Montebello where Bush, Harper and Calderon will be meeting to advance their agenda of “deep integration” of Mexico, Canada and the United States.
“It is deplorable that we are being prevented from bringing together a panel of writers, academics and parliamentarians to share their concerns about the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Canadians,” said Brent Patterson, director of organizing with the Council of Canadians. “Meanwhile, six kilometers away, corporate leaders from the United States, Mexico and Canada will have unimpeded access to our political leaders.”
From the U.S., The Coalition to Block the North American Union is planning a similar meeting, but now it won’t be within 15 miles of Montebello.
The latter organization is a coalition of dozens of influential U.S. organizations such as the American Policy Center, Eagle Forum, Conservative Caucus, Freedom 21, the John Birch Society, World Research Library and many others.
As has been previously pointed out, the SPP is a stealth vehicle to facilitate harmonization of regulations that are necessary for the introduction of the North American Union (NAU), the merger of Mexico, Canada and the United States. There is no legislative authority for SPP to even exist, and hence, there is no congressional oversight.
The Council of Canadians and the Coalition to Stop the NAU are hardly a physical threat to anyone, so security is not the issue here: This should be taken as a blatant attempt to stifle legitimate public inquiry and debate that would threaten to bring to light the nefarious agenda of the SPP and its perpetrators.
Conversely, corporate or media representatives who are favorable to the Security and Prosperity Partnership will not be subject to the 25 kilometer limit.
