Leader of CAP Calls for Referendum and General Strike Regarding SPP

The battle lines are being drawn and the Canadian Action Party (CAP) is front and center, fighting the North American Union agenda. They are very adamant that Canada’s sovereignty should not be negotiated away. On their websites homepage it states, “A decision regarding the restructuring of Canada into an integrated North American Union with a common currency is a decision for the citizens of Canada – not for a minority government with an ineffective opposition.”


CAP is demanding full disclosure of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP). In a recent video address, their leader Connie Fogal called for a referendum and general strike in regards to the SPP. A general strike might be hard to organize, but it would be an effective way of protesting and drawing further attention to this whole process of deeper integration.


CAP is concerned, and rightfully so, that any parliamentary vote to try and stop the SPP would probably not succeed. After all, it was the Liberal Party under Paul Martin who began the SPP process, and under Stephen Harper’s Conservative Government, this agenda has only accelerated. CAP is absolutely correct that there needs to be a referendum concerning the SPP, as it should be the people who decide its fate and not politicians whose allegiances might lie elsewhere.


CAP wants NAFTA replaced with a trade deal that places Canadians best interests ahead of those of multinational corporations. Fogal said that, “NAFTA was the beginning of the institutional, administrative restructuring of the three nations into a North American Union.”


Many Canadians and Americans are taking action to further expose and stop the North American Union. Resolutions stating concerns about the SPP have recently been presented in Missouri House and Senate committees. This is all very encouraging, and with every small victory we are that much closer to defeating this agenda.


The Canadian Action Party and their leader Connie Fogal need to be commended for their efforts in trying to stop the North American Union. Fogal said, “If Canada is to be restored to an independent, sovereign and democratic nation, if that is what you want, then your political leaders must take back control of our rules and procedures immediately into the hands of a democratic Parliament. They must act immediately to move the control of our government out of the hands of a cabinet apparatus and a bureaucracy that have abandoned their duty to the citizens and to the public good, and they must disembowel the corporate rule.” Integration into a North American Union is already happening, but there is still time to stop it if we act now.
