Unveiling of 30 point US-Canadian Security Perimeter plan deferred towards Christmas
Seattle, WA --According to Canadian press outlets, the unveiling of a Beyond The Borders trilateral security proposal featuring a 30 point plan has been deferred to a later date in December, 2011. Previous discussions of the secured continental perimeter included: a US-Canadian fence, expanded exchanges of intelligence and shared citizen identity data, including but not limited to a demand for biometric identity at the borders.
The prior controversial proposal has drawn criticisms and subsequent appeals for public input. North Americans exhibited concerns over interrupted commerce, mass loss of privacy and claims the formative trilateral government deliberately withheld information about discussions and meetings from U.S. media.
Press records show very little coverage specifics of the continental Security Perimeter meetings anywhere else in the world other than Canada. Notices of public input and press advisories issued by the United States government have not been covered by conventional US media outlets. Nevertheless, Canada's Post-Leader reported US Customs and Border Patrol administration stating 3 out of 4 Americans agree with the proposal and there is bi-partisan support from the US Congress.
To date, the only available port of public input has been Canada's Beyond The Border's working group. Toronto protests in Spring of 2011 evolved as a response to Prime Minister Harper's early closure of public input and refusal of grievances over US-Canadian security perimeter proposals. Public input was later extended to Canadians June 3rd, 2011.
