Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.
The U.S. military’s Northern Command, however, publicized the agreement with a statement outlining how its top officer, Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency.
Entire Posse Comitatus
The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits members of the Army, and Air Force, from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property (states and their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.
Trew said there is potential for the agreement to militarize civilian responses to emergency incidents. He noted that work is also underway for the two nations to put in place a joint plan to protect common infrastructure such as roadways and oil pipelines.
“Are we going to see (U.S.) troops on our soil for minor potential threats to a pipeline or a road?” he asked.
On right-wing blogs in the U.S. it is being used as evidence of a plan for a “North American union” where foreign troops, not bound by U.S. laws, could be used by the American federal government to override local authorities.
We have to deal with your troops which we can all agree are tougher than Canadian troops. We get the raw end of the deal.

Canada and the US are pretty much one and the same these days as per NWO plans. Canadian troops would probably not fire upon thier own citizens nor would thier US counterparts. Sharing each others troops has been in the planning for a long time now and might come to fruition soon as I suspect that something BIG is gonna happen real soon. Some kind of false flag attack I expect. Another 911 either in Canada or the US. That would be all the reason needed for either gov't to declare marshall law. Canada is already a police state as witnessed at the G20 in Toronto, we're just not as up-front about it as the US. Sharing each others troops, be they police or millitary, removes some of the emotional aspect about beating citizens into submission.
