    StopSPP.com - November 2, 2006

    The mainstream media still refuses to take the notion of a “North American Union” seriously, yet the leadership of Mexico, Canada and the U.S. are proceeding as if the framework is already a done deal; all that’s left is to work out the details. We found this article on the El Universal website. To our knowledge, this is the first time the existence of a plan to achieve a unified currency has ever been publicly acknowledged at the executive level. Calderon will meet with President Bush on November 9. It is expected that many of the same topics will be discussed, including the North American Union and a consolidated currency.

    From El Universal: [Translation/summary] “Last week, the president-elect of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, met with Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper. Among other things, they discussed the need to reinforce NAFTA. Other topics of discussion included the role of the Mexican military in maintaining security and the need for the two countries to strengthen commerce in such areas agricultural products and energy. The two leaders also discussed investment in the poorer zones of each country to reduce the need for mass migrations. They also shared a vision of the future for a North American Union that would include a consolidated currency. It is believed that a “solid and unified” currency is necessary to compete in the global economy….”

    For a while I did business with a Mexican man in Tijuana. He said while he was growing up he didn't know what a peso was, everybody used dollars! Even today you can pay in dollars in Mexico.

    So why not just adopt the US dollar?

    El presidente electo de México, Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, coincidió con el primer ministro de Canadá, Stephen Harper, y con los líderes de los principales partidos políticos de este país, en la necesidad de reforzar el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) y en la visión a futuro de que, en unos 20 años, esta región continental tenga la posibilidad de contar con una moneda de uso general consolidada y un fondo tripartita para impulsar a las zonas más pobres de estas naciones.
    En este primer día de trabajo -de los dos que permanecerá en Canadá-, el próximo mandatario mexicano se reunió por separado con Harper en las instalaciones del Congreso, y en la casa de visitantes distinguidos con el presidente de la Cámara de los Comunes, Peter Milliken; con Jack Layton, líder del Partido Neo-Demócrata; Bill Graham, líder del Partido Liberal, y con Gilles Duceppe, líder del Partido Bloque Quebequense.

    En las conversaciones que sostuvo por separado, Calderón Hinojosa abordó varios temas que fueron desde la migración, el sector energético, la seguridad en la región norteamericana y la visión a futuro de este sector del continente, además de hacer especial énfasis en el papel del Ejército mexicano en la seguridad.

    "Tenemos que andar con pies de plomo, pero el resultado de la seguridad tiene que ser bueno para todos, puede ser una situación benéfica especialmente en estos tiempos. México y el Ejército son muy respetados", dijo, al recordar el apoyo que dio a Estados Unidos cuando la ciudad de Nueva Orleáns fue devastada por el huracán Katrina.

    El presidente electo sostuvo que para su gobierno "será muy importante fortalecer la posición del Ejército y tener mucho cuidado con respecto a cualquier tipo de acción que involucre a éste". La participación del Ejército canadiense en labores de paz de Naciones Unidas ha sido muy controversial; "sin embargo, para el caso del mexicano va a ser imposible que participe en este tipo de operaciones. Nos enfrentamos a circunstancias peligrosas que rebasan las fronteras, necesitamos proteger a las personas".

    Durante el encuentro con Bill Graham, líder del Partido Liberal, Calderón indicó que "puede haber un futuro en común; lo importante es que los ciudadanos mexicanos crean en nuestro Ejército, es una de las instituciones más fuertes en nuestra sociedad".

    En esta gira, marcada por las bajas temperaturas que anuncian la llegada de las nevadas, el primer ministro Harper dijo: "Hemos tratado temas como el fortalecimiento del Acuerdo de Libre Comercio.

    "México es un aliado comercial y de inversiones importantes para Canadá y nosotros buscaremos la forma de fortalecer y estimular los intercambios comerciales entre los dos países".

    Stephen Harper, quien calificó a Calderón como un hombre de principios, comentó que se discutió "la forma en cómo podríamos emplear la alianza entre Canadá y México para mejorar nuestras relaciones bilaterales estratégicas en áreas como la competitividad económica, la vivienda y el sector agroindustrial y de energía".

    Sobre la seguridad, añadió: "Nuestras discusiones se centraron en temas como el fortalecimiento del acuerdo de libre comercio, pues, junto con Estados Unidos, México es un aliado clave para Canadá".

    El presidente electo, quien invitó a Harper a su toma de protesta como presidente de México el 1 de diciembre, anunció que se asumió el compromiso "de llevar a cabo encuentros frecuentes con agendas concretas. Con mucho gusto el próximo año aquí en Canadá".

    Más tarde, durante la reunión con Gilles Duceppe, líder del Partido Bloque Quebequense, el panista coincidió "plenamente" en la propuesta de conformar un fondo que aporte recursos a proyectos productivos de las zonas pobres de cada país, a fin de reducir la migración y en la necesidad de, en un mundo globalizado, contar con una moneda sólida y unificada.

    Calderón se reunirá hoy con Noel A. Kinsella, presidente del Senado, y con especialistas en temas forestales y de medio ambiente.
