Re: Jan 18, 2006 article in The Province called Travellers
Thank you Jack Keating for profiling this issue. Radio Frequency
ID is BAD: It violates S6 of Canadas Charter of Rights and Freedoms,
S 1(a) of the Canadian Bill of Rights, and is Part of the U.S.A.
Fortress America Command Over Canada, and the Stealthy Forging of
a Police State. It is Orwellian. It is Totalitarian.
Let us be very clear! The radio frequency ID now required in the
USA and intended for Canada is a tracking device that will tell
authorities where the holder of this PASS card is at any time. It
is a location device. The acronym PASS card tells all. It is an
abbreviation for People Access Security Service. The US Canada border
already has and has had for some time a device that reads your cars
licence information instantly transmitting to the border attendant
all your identification the moment you approach the border guard
station. What did you think that flashing light was that snapped
a picture of your car before you are allowed to cross the demarcation
line? They do not need a PASS card to do the identification of the
person passing through the border.
Subjecting citizens of democracies to tracking devices is a violation
of and tragedy for freedom. S 6 (1) of the Charter reads Every
citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in, and leave Canada.
To require such a tracking ID card in order that one could move
in an out of Canada violates this right. The Canadian Bill of Rights
S 1(a) guarantees to Canadians the right to be free. To be tracked
is not to be free.
Such location devices are already in some cell phones unknown to
users. The justification made (if you discover the tracking capabilities)
is that if someone steals your cell phones, authorities can instantly
read the tracking information to locate the cell phone. The same
authorities can locate where you are at any point of time so long
as you carry that cell phone. Some clothing from Walmart, some automobiles
also carry such tracking devices.
What is going on here is the imposition and implementation of a
police state in Fortress America extending its territory over all
of North America. Unless Canadians inform themselves of the process
unfolding right now that fundamentally intends to deform Canada,
we will all wake up soon to discover we do not have a democracy,
nor freedom, nor a country.
On December 12, 2001 John Manley, who was at that time the Liberal
Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, entered an agreement with Tom Ridge,
the USA Homeland Security Director, called the 30 point Smart Border
Declaration. By that agreement both signatories on behalf of their
respective countries promised to create a new regime of North America.
That plan included, among other things, the promise to introduce
the radio frequency ID cards, biometric identifiers in documentation(
DNA markers , eyeprints, fingerprints), permanent resident cards,
no fly lists (i.e. lists of people not allowed to fly.), no passport
lists (i.e. lists of people not allowed to renew their passports),
surveillance of internet use, email , cell phone and fax communications,
sharing of revenue Canada and census information (i.e. divulging
all the personal and financial data of Canadians to the USA Homeland
Security Office), and anti-terrorism legislation. Many other steps
in this plan are also being effected. The Canada Customs and Revenue
Agency is working collaboratively with the United States Customs
Service, the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service,
and Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
The question is, how can such dramatic, profound, liberty stripping,
and nation dissecting processes be in the works, actually being
effected without Parliamentary debate and decision? The nations
business and destiny have passed out of the control of our citizens
and our constitution. When Tom Manley signed that Smart Border declaration
and then began its implementation via various departments of government,
he was exercising dictatorial practice. He began a process of regime
change in Canada. This betrayal of the sacred trust of Canada is
far more egregious than the corruption revealed in the Gomery Enquiry.
It reveals systemic, deliberate self destruction and sabotage of
The Smart Border Plan mirrors the recommendations of a USA, Canada,
Mexico Task Force which recommendations were divulged on May 17,
2005. This task force is composed of the leading CEOs of the most
powerful corporations in North America, prominent former officials,
like Tom Manly who now heads that task force, business men and academic
apologists from all three countries. They plan to unify North America.
The recommendations include a common security perimeter by 2010.
(Fortress America), a North American border pass with biometric
identifiers, a unified border and expanded facilities, a single
economic space, a common external tariff, a seamless movement of
goods within North America, a North American energy strategy, a
review of sectors of NAFTA that were excluded, a North American
Regulatory plan that removes regulations, a permanent tribunal for
disputes, an annual North American summit meeting.
So there you have it. This task force is the driving source and
force of policy and practice that is changing the shape and fabric
of Canada. Unelected, unaccountable, uncontrollable people and corporations
are in control of our destiny, our lives, and our well-being.
In March of 2005 Prime Minister Martin and President Bush and President
Fox signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement which
adopts the Task Force Recommendations. Martin, Bush, and Fox then
assigned three cabinet ministers in their respective countries to
implement the deal. In Canada they are Pierre Pettigrew, Minister
of Foreign affairs, David Emerson, Minister of Industry, Anne McLellan,
Deputy Prime Minister and Minster of Public Safety and Emergency
Preparedness (the last being a new department flowing from Task
Force demands) . In June of 2005 the three ministers of each country
reported their progress to date to the Leaders in a document called
Report To Leaders, Security and Prosperity Partnership of North
America. They reference the intention that the deal be permanent,
The Members of Parliament appear not to know about these deals.
As Leader of the Canadian Action Party, I am running for Parliament
in the Vancouver Kingsway riding, held by David Emerson, one of
Canadas three Joe Boys. None of the other candidates know
of these deals or talk of them. Emerson hides from his role in them.
Other candidates seeking reelection in other ridings know nothing
of them. None of them know about the existence of the No Passport
list. Most know about the No Fly lists. Both of these appear to
have been implemented by the bureaucracy without Parliamentary debate.
All of these agreements are being effected by a stealthy manoeuver
of incremental presentation to Parliament and/or incremental bureaucratic
departmental implementation. Some parts of the Smart Border Plan
necessarily have to be dealt with in Parliament, like the liberty
stripping anti-terrorist legislation passed in 2002, or the surveillance
legislation to legalize spying on internet, e mail and cell phone
use, etc. The surveillance legislation was before Parliament when
the writ dropped and will be back after the new government convenes.
I have documented these agreements with their details and urls
to sources in a three part article titled the Metamorphosis and
Sabotage of Canada by our Own Government. See www.canadianctionparty.ca
We have already reached the stage many of us warned against since
the introduction of various international agreements like NAFTA
came on scene. Members of Parliament are now irrelevant. They are
impotent in the face of these international agreements that cede
power out of the nations control to an unelected unaccountable
body of Chief executive corporate officers, retired government officials,
business men, and academics. They will remain so unless they reverse
these arrangements. This election is a sham under this changing
Only the Canadian Action Party is trying to expose these agreements.
Only the Canadian Action Party calls for the abrogation of the FTA
and NAFTA, the rescission of the anti-terrorist legislation, the
cancelling of the aforesaid agreements arising out of the North
American Task force as being unconstitutional and violations of
our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. They are , in fact, acts of
Unless Canadians join in these demands, our nation, our country
as we know it will continue to die. The anti- Canadians and anti
democrats are in control. The fact that only this one small party
is exposing this betrayal of Canada is a national disgrace. One
can only conclude that the other Parties support this transfer of
power out of their control, and are complicit in the death of the
sovereignty of our nation which is not theirs to destroy. Sovereignty
belongs to the people, not to political parties, nor unelected unaccountable
Devices that track citizen movement are only one part of a terrible
