Canadians protest 'North American Union'

A Canadian political party intends to fly the national flag upside down during its convention this weekend as a signal of distress and resistance against the integration of Canada with the United States and Mexico into a North American Union regional government.

Connie Fogal, the leader of the Canadian Action Party told WND “we are opposed to the plan to develop the Security and Prosperity Partnership into a EU-style North American Union government” which “amounts to treason and is a total violation of the constitutional rights of Canadian citizens.”

Fogel explained that the party has decided to fly the Canadian Flag upside down during its convention “as a signal of our distress and resistance against the integration of Canada with the United States and Mexico.”

Fogal argues the plan to form a North American Union is designed to avoid public scrutiny and to maintain “deniability” even as the legal structure for a new regional government is being put into place by the executive branches of the three countries.

Cabinet-level executive branch participants of the SPP working groups in Canada are organized to work with counterparts in the U.S. and Mexico largely out of public view.

“The plan is to create the NAU incrementally,” Fogal told WND, “because if any of the three governments were up front about their true intentions, the SPP plan would never fly.”

The U.S. Department of Commerce SPP website contains a link to the SPP counterparts in Mexico and Canada.

Fogel used strong language in expressing to WND the focus of the Canadian Action Party to bring the SPP and NAU to the attention of Canadians.

“The rapid integration of North America into one entity ruled by an unaccountable, unrepresented and unelected group cabal of administrative executive branch officials is treason pure and simple,” she said.

The Canadian Action Party is recognized by Canadian federal elections officials as an official Canadian political party. In the 2006 federal election, the party fielded some 36 candidates but received only some .04% of the vote.

A video currently archived on YouTube.com records Connie Fogel’s charge that the Canadian involvement in SPP and the movement to create the NAU constitutes treason.
