SPP: Anything but sovereignty on their minds!

Could the governments of North America be conspiring to turn the continent into one united country? A group of protesters scouring Pitt Street Saturday believe it's only a matter of time before Canada loses it sovereignty to a super-powered government made of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Dwight Dugas and several other Cornwall residents started their call to action against the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) outside the constituency office of MP Guy Lauzon, much the way they say similar grassroots groups did in 18 other Canadian cities Saturday.

According to the Government of Canada website, the SPP is "a commitment" by all three countries "to work together to build a safer and more economically dynamic North America" that focuses on the areas of cross-border transportation, security, economic prosperity, environmental protection and public health.
[...] The group's principal concern is the alleged creation of a universal currency to be used across all three countries known as the "Amero," a concept discussed by Professor of Economics Herbert Grubel of Simon Fraser University in his 1999 book.

"The SPP is a threat to our country and our way of life," Dugas said. "If we give up our currency, we give up our sovereignty. Whoever controls the money in a country has the power."

The SPP mandate claims to respect the sovereignty of each country, which Lauzon backed up Monday after an unrelated press conference at the Lionel Chevrier building.

"(Creating one country) is not what (SPP) is about," Lauzon said. "Let's say a pandemic of the flu breaks out. We can't have it getting across our borders. It's all about security and protecting the residents of all three countries. I don't think any of the leaders have anything but sovereignty on their minds at these meetings."
