Confirmed: The SPP is a plan by and for the corporate masters

See short update, below.

Thanks for passing this nugget along, Larry! Not only is it a non-democratic document created in secrecy but it is now confirmed to be created and implemented for business, which we all knew, anyway. But still, it’s nice to have that validation, innit?

CLC/CTC > It’s time to move from candid admission to a people’s agenda

April 23, 2008

All cosmetic gloss of democracy vanished at the New Orleans Summit when the president of Mexico most candidly summarized his day by saying: “This morning, the Business Leaders gave us a specific agenda to follow . . . We are here to support them through.” [emphasis mine]

If anyone out there still had doubts about the true nature of the Security Prosperity Partnership (SPP), this honest confession sets the record straight. The Prime Minister of Canada, the President of the United States and the President of Mexico take their orders from big business. The results: the well-being of working families in our three countries and Canadian control of Canada’s petroleum resources, are on the chopping block. Harper, Bush and Calderón are business’ agents.

UPDATE: Those who need to learn a bit more about the SPP ought to take a look at Creekside, where Alison, the Goddess of Opposition to the SPP, has posted repeatedly about its failings.

The Joint Statement by the leaders is here: and the juicy piece, from which the above is taken, is here.

  1. Good catch, Berlynn.

    Eric : I disagree.
    The privatization of public policy-making and the dismantling of 50 years of social justice legislation merely for the benefit of a few multinational corps is indeed quite new.

  2. Hopefully all the opposition parties will speak out loudly about these secret negotiations done behind closed doors with big business. Hopefully the official oppostion – Dion – does. Oh wait, they’are all for it.

  4. Include the volume of a downpayment, month-to-month loan payments and every other expenses associated with producing the truck operational.

    You’ll find countless firms inside the market striving to provide the very best loan deals for the customers to ensure that they will retain them.
