The new all party caucus addressing border issues between Canada and the United States is another sham taking place. Our M.P, Guy Lauzon has fallen for the American trap, and is now toeing the line, as reported in his recent, undated report to constituents.
With a faint Canadian flag in the background, and the title “Fighting for You!” on the flyer, and a picture of the American Ambassador standing next to Lauzon, all we needed was an American flag embedded somewhere, and the takeover would be complete. This flyer is about as un-Canadian as it gets.
Firstly, we are still waiting for Ambassador Celucci to apologize to our prime minister and to all Canadians for his outrageous remarks about the Canadian decision to refuse to participate in missile defense. A foreign diplomat has no business interfering in the political decisions of Canada. His sarcastic comments regarding our decision are unacceptable. On other occasions he has admonished and criticized Canada’s political decisions, and tried to use fear tactics in shaping our laws. Celucci needs to remember he is a guest in this country, and as such should keep his opinions to himself.
Once again the United States is using the border issue as a means of asserting itself upon the government of Canada. At the Mexican border, for example, authorities look the other way, while an amazing 10,000,000 Mexicans enter the United States illegally each year. The Americans are saying that they want to have tight border security, but what they’re really doing is opening the borders more than they ever have been! Amnesty may be granted to between 15-20 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. How did they get in and what is going on?
One thing for certain, Canadians aren’t lining up at our border to immigrate to the United States.
In Canada, we are being held to ransom for our political decisions. Even when a Montana judge supports an injunction to prohibit Canadian beef from crossing the border, President Bush wonders out loud how this happened? This issue is such a huge farce it would be laughable if it weren’t so serious. Everyone knows that Canadian beef is safe; the issue is routinely joked about on comedy shows, but nevertheless, the beef still isn’t crossing the border.
If the Americans can’t be straight with us, how can we trust them on other issues?
As for the Conservative party, the last time they got involved in trade agreements, Mulroney sold Canada down the river in a 200 page, free trade agreement that is not available to read for the next 20 years. We don’t really know the details of the FTA.
Mulroney’s friend, Lucien Bouchard was parachuted from Ottawa to take Quebec out of Canada, but fortunately for us that didn’t happen. Quebec is much better off being part of Canada than being the 51st state of the United States. So for the moment, the Americans are not able to divert our Quebec rivers and get their hands on Canadian water, which will be the cause of much conflict in this new millennium.
The upshot to all of this is that politicians of any stripe are not to be trusted, and we must constantly remind them for whom they work and what we want for our country. Above all, we need to constantly search for the truth which is becoming much harder to find.
