    Great Canadian and Senior Member of Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau's government opposes North American Union agenda

    by Emily Wierenga

    May 4, 2007

    Dr. Thomas Axworthy, co-chairman of Canada’s Liberal Renewal Commission, was opposed to NAFTA from its infancy 15 years ago. Today he is equally adamant against the possible formation of a North American Union.

    Having served as former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s Principal Secretary from 1981 to 1984, as well as the Chairman of the Centre for the Study of Democracy and Chairman of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, one would assume Dr. Axworthy has our nation in his best interest.

    While he respects the U.S. as a neighbouring country, the author of Our American Cousins (James Lorimer & Co.) has no faith in America’s word. After all, “The US is very capricious.”

    Mr. Axworthy expands, “I was involved in the 1988 dispute; (with the emergence of NAFTA), they said there would never again be disputes because there are rules. But with the soft wood situation, they didn’t follow the procedure.”

    In short? “The jurisdiction process means nothing. If the U.S. wants soft wood lumber, they’ll get it. So we still faced the same problem after NAFTA that we had before.”

    The only difference being that the problem has expanded into possible annihilation of national independence.

    Quietly, behind closed doors, in a manner similar to the pigs of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, Harper and Bush are signing away the rights of Canadian citizens.

    It’s been a gradual process, beginning in 1992 with NAFTA when former Progressive Conservative Party Prime Minister Brian Mulroney gave up sovereignty over our oil and gas industries; it was then supported by former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien’s signature in 1993; furthered by the development of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) in 2005, and established by current Prime Minister Harper’s Leader’s Joint Statement in 2006. The latter presented six action points to move toward a North American Union (NAU).

    Today’s government, says Axworthy, “is easily the most pro-American government we’ve ever had.”

    With queried about the implementation of the “North American Community,” Mr. Axworthy exclaims, “God be with them if they try! Canada has a very distinctive way of life. We have a different value system. We have a different set of priorities …”

    To compromise even more of Canada’s resources, says Axworthy, such as the Great Lakes, would lead to our nation’s demise.

    “We need more independence and more autonomy in order to preserve our distinct way of life.”

    He acknowledges the importance of being on friendly terms with the US; after all, in case of a pandemic, for example, “You’d like to have protocols that agree upon sharing resources or procedures.”

    However, Mr. Axworthy is quick to add, “You don’t want your neighbour moving into your house. So you lock the door.”

    When questioned on his views of the “Amero” – the name assigned to the possible single monetary system between Canada and the U.S. – Axworthy becomes quietly enraged.

    “That’s nonsensical. Ridiculous. When you think of sovereignty, there are relatively few instruments. One is having an independent monetary currency.

    “The second is independent power over taxation, and the third is regulation. What we have done with NAFTA is we gave up regulation on the oil and gas; you would certainly want to keep the other instruments.”

    Ultimately, Canada is at the verge of losing its identity – yet its citizens are unaware. Again, paralleling the Seven Commandments in Orwell’s Animal Farm, the “pigs” are discreetly changing Trudeau’s Charter of Rights and Freedom, assuming their “labourers” are too ignorant to notice.

    The only way to prevent our complete Charter from being altered or eradicated is to wake up and take action. We must stop working blindly for our “pro-American” government, and refuse to let our identity slip away.

    “There’s no question Harper is a great admirer of neo-conservatism (like going to war in Iraq, for example),” says Dr. Axworthy. “I don’t think he has Canada at his heart. I’m in favour of an independent foreign policy. My goal is to (see) Canada have as much independence as possible.”

    Personally, I’m beginning to wonder if the pros of being a ‘peace-keeping’ nation still outweigh the cons.

    At what point does peacekeeping verge upon complacency, particularly when confronted by power-hungry adversaries?

    As proven through numerous occasions, including the current war on Iraq, the US has an insatiable appetite, feeding off unsuspecting citizens of peaceful (or under-developed) heritages.


    Metaphorically speaking, Canada is America’s younger sibling. They are playing a game, which we’ll call “Monopoly.” America assumes the role of ‘rule-maker,’ and dubs these rules “NAFTA.” It then proceeds to ignore every rule infringing upon its winning the game. In other words, NAFTA is a consolatory way of appeasing Canada’s conscience, holding no real leverage whatsoever.

    I will close with a quote from the Right Honourable former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau: “Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We’re different people from (them) and we’re different people because of (them). “Living next to (them) is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States.”

    And signing away AMERICAN RIGHTS & SOVEREIGNTY!

    Thank goodness Canada has at least one smart man who just might help to wake up her people.

    WE need the Canadians to help fight this goliath.

    Well, I'm sorry Dr. Axworthy lost his bid at stopping NAFTA, let's hope he has better luck against the North American Union.
