Find out what Rice and Chertoff aren't telling you

A message from the Council of Canadians ...


Rice and Chertoff visit Canada

Find out what they won’t be telling you about North American integration!

On Friday February 23, U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice and Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff will be in Ottawa to discuss North American integration with their Canadian and Mexican counterparts. This is part of a series of meetings aimed at bringing Canadian and Mexican policies in line with U.S. demands through an agreement called the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP).

The SPP is bad for public interest and bad for the environment. So far, only the CEOs of North America’s biggest corporations have been invited to the table. There has been no parliamentary debate and the public has been left out completely.

The Council of Canadians will be setting up an SPP information station outside the meeting to expose the facts about this corporate-led plan for North America. Join us on the 23rd to find out more and to let our leaders know that we will not let them shut us out any longer!

WHEN:

9:00 am – 11:00 am

and

3:00pm – 4:30 pm

WHERE:

In front of DFAIT -- 125 Sussex Drive, Ottawa

This will be a family-friendly event.
