Harper can't do anything like that without the OK of the opposition parties, and there are 3 of them. Plus the Queen.
If it turned out that he did sign something without the rest of our government knowing, it would be illegal, and an election would be called.
Sort've like Mulroney did with the FTA, after his campaign based on the promise of ignoring the FTA?
They pushed the FTA on Canadians through manipulating the reality of the situation, as per Washington's orders. There was a large populist action
against it which resulted in an election. The Canadian people voted against Mulroney and the FTA... then Mulroney pushed it through anyway because
of his control over the senate at the time.
Then Chretien came in on the promise of taking down the FTA in its infancy. Two weeks as PM and he changed his tune. Now if that is not treason,
then it is surely not democracy.
I have this one economics professor who claims that the HST tax placed on British Columbians was the only good decision that Premier Gordon Campbell
ever made. He says this from an economical point of view. Since I'm involved in the political side, it's not hard to see why Campbell resigned after
10 years as premier: HE PROMISED NOT TO PUSH THE HST ON US DURING THE PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS.
This is Canadian politics; it's not democracy. Our provincial and federal governments may do what they feel is best for Canada, but it is far from
what Canadians think is best for them.
While Harper signs the Fortress American Agreement with Obama, Canadian food and housing prices jump like crazy. His solution is more connection with
the US economy. That was also one of the US's solutions to annexing Canada for almost two centuries.
Gee, score three for our government, the very people we elect to protect our sovereignty
(First two being "military and military industry interoperability" in the 50s and the FTA/NAFTA 20 years ago)
The fact of the situation is that Harper is an extremely controlling, smart and aggressive person. He has formed an extremely effective federal
government that is efficient at controlling the country. This is unlike any recent Liberal governments. And what is the alternative to Harper now?
Nothing, at least no federal party that wouldn't get eaten alive by American interests.
This is exactly what happened 20 years ago; our country has been sold out, the people told lies, and our sovereignty now mostly in the hands of the
Americans. What are some key points of the Security and Prosperity Protocol? The fact that Americans want joint land and water access (just like
joint air space); national customs will become obsolete because "inspections" will be done at the corporate manufacturing facilities (not by those
commie government agents :@@
; Canadian bulk water supplies will become a priority commodity for the American market; less restrictions on foreign
ownership of Canadian assets; blah blah blah
What a nightmare this will become, and it has all been planned for decades. The treason here, goes far beyond just Harper.
