Strengthening U.S.-Canada Security Interests in North America and Around the Globe More than ever, the U.S, and Canada share a more common approach to advancing security interests in not only North America, but around the globe. Under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, both countries have further deepened their defense relationship. In addition, Canada has pursued a more U.S.-style foreign policy.

The Pretext for a North American Homeland Security Perimeter A North American Homeland Security perimeter goes well beyond keeping people safe from any perceived threats. It is a means to secure trade, resources, as well as corporate interests and is a pretext for control over the continent. Ultimately, the U.S. wants the final say on who is allowed to enter and who is allowed to leave.

North American Integration And The Ties That Bind After a two year hiatus, the leaders of the U.S., Canada and Mexico are set to meet for a trilateral summit. When it comes to continental integration, much of the focus has shifted to greater convergence bilaterally which over time could move back to a more trilateral approach. There is an overwhelming sense that one way or another, the U.S. is going to get a North American security perimeter on their own terms.

Canada Pursues U.S.-Style Security and Foreign Policy While in the past Canada has exercised a more independent foreign policy, in many ways, it has now succumbed to the imperialistic aspirations of the U.S. and NATO. The war in Afghanistan and the continued bombing in Libya have demonstrated Canada's willingness to use military force to advance foreign policy.

U.S.-Canada Perimeter Security and the Consolidation of North America There is no reason to trust that our governments will strike any kind of balance between security and freedom. That is why it is imperative that we demand more transparency and input. With a joint action plan expected to be released soon, it is my hope that Canadians and Americans will reject any perimeter security deal that reduces privacy rights and further puts our sovereignty at risk.

Advancing U.S.-Canada Economic, Energy and Security Integration Canada has already enacted many U.S. security measures. As part of a continental security perimeter arrangement, Canada could be forced to comply with any new U.S. requirements, regardless of the risks they may pose to privacy and civil liberties.

U.S.-Canada Perimeter Security and an Integrated North American Command The end results of a fully integrated continental security perimeter could sacrifice what is left of Canadian sovereignty and independence. This could bring its military, security and foreign policy under the umbrella of a single, U.S.-dominated North American Command.

The Push for a Single Unified North American Regulatory Regime A North American security perimeter goes well beyond keeping the U.S. safe from any perceived threats. It is a means to secure trade, resources and corporate interests. Much like the whole deep integration agenda, regulatory harmonization is taking incremental steps with the goal of achieving a single unified North American regulatory regime.

North American Perimeter Security and the Militarization of the Northern Border With the release of a U.S. Congressional report that found only a small fraction of the border with Canada was being adequately monitored, there is now more focus being placed on the northern border. As a result of increased scrutiny, there are efforts to militarize and expand surveillance on the Canada-U.S. border.

U.S. Dictating North American Air Travel Security Bill C-42 is a key component of the North American security perimeter. It is another example of how Canada is being further pressured to adopt U.S. security standards. In many cases, the Department of Homeland Security will now have the final say on who is allowed to travel to and from Canada.

Perimeter Security and the Future of North American Integration Out of the ashes of the defunt SPP, the U.S. has pursued simultaneous bilateral agendas with both Canada and Mexico, in an effort to further deepen North American economic and security integration. While the NAFTA framework remains intact, a recent announcement by Canada and the U.S. to work towards a trade and security perimeter agreement without Mexico, has some questioning the future of the whole trilateral process.

A North American Security Perimeter Threatens National Sovereignty President Obama and Prime Minister Harper have officially launched negotiations on a trade and security agreement which would take Canada-U.S.integration to the next level. A declaration issued by the leaders follows months of secret preliminary talks. The deal would work towards facilitating the movement of travel and trade across the northern border.

From NAFTA to CETA: Canada-EU Deep Economic Integration Canada and the EU have already held five rounds of negotiations towards a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) which will go beyond NAFTA. As talks enter their final crucial stages, there are growing concerns over the threat CETA poses to Canadian sovereignty. Coupled with the financial turmoil sweeping Europe, deep economic integration with the EU could prove disastrous.

North American Integration Back on the Front Burner In the last year, the U.S. has channelled many of the the Security and Prosperity Partnership's (SPP) trilateral negotiations to parallel bilateral discussions with both Canada and Mexico. Recent reports of a Canada-U.S. security and trade agreement has once again highlighted the whole process of deep continental integration. The U.S. is formulating a strategy with the aim of implementing a North American security perimeter.

Canada Surrenders Sovereignty and Privacy to U.S. Secure Flight Program Canada is under pressure from U.S. officials to further comply with American security rules which in some cases, threatens its sovereignty and the privacy of its citizens. As a result of the war on terrorism, the U.S. government now has more power to restrict air travel and is not only dictating North American, but also international security measures.
