Connie Fogal,  Leader of the Canadian Action Party

CAP - Connie Fogal - CBC has labelled its coverage of the election campaign:  "Making It Count". They ask," How Healthy is Our Democracy?" Well, it  is o­n the critical list .Globalization and deep integration with
The United States of America is killing us. What does democracy mean to you? To me it means freedom to choose arrangements that function in the best interest of my community and me.

Connie Fogal Leader of the Canadian Action Party

Canadians did not choose to join the F.T.A. or NAFTA. First  Brian
Mulroney, for the Conservatives  and then Jean Chr?tien for the Liberals won elections o­n
their  promise to stay out of those agreements. But they betrayed us by
entering them immediately  after their elections to power.

Canadians did not choose to enter deep security and military integration
with the U.S.A. We did not choose to sacrifice our liberty for alleged
security. No, our government just gave it to us in lock step with the
destruction of liberties in the USA.

The USA created The Patriot Act. Canada created Bill C 36, our
anti-terrorist legislation that even criminalizes dissent and through which
the Raging Grannies have been defined as terrorists by Canada's CSIS..

The USA created the US Department of Homeland Security. Canada created a
Ministry of Public Safety. With the Public Safety and Emergency
Preparedness Act and Bill C7 a few Canadian Ministers can declare martial
law  without any checks and balances, and without going to Parliament.

Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge has said that if the U.S. goes to
'Red Code Alert', that would shut down the US. With our new legislation,
Canada would follow suit.

A Canada /US agreement called  Smart Border Declaration 30 point Action
Plan integrates all  the tax and immigration data of Canadians in the hands
of the USA. Previously privileged information respecting income, assets,
debts, social insurance numbers, employment status, occupation, birth
place, marriage, divorce, number of children, citizenship status,
immigration history, refugee concerns, everything private to us, is in a
foreign data bank to be used against Canadians at the whim of the USA. Our
border will be patrolled by the US. military. Eventually, our  eye prints
and finger prints will  be taken against our will to be shared with the
U.S. Canada will no longer decide who gets a VISA to Canada.

We have a joint  U.S.- Canadian Binational Planning Group( BNG)
consolidating  a mutual-defence organization that supercedes NORAD  and
will permit deployment of special forces o­n Canadian land, sea, and air,
all in the context of collaboration to protect  the USA home front.

Did you even know that was in the works?

How healthy is our democracy? Very ill and in palliative care.

"The world is not, in fact, ruled by global corporations. It is ruled by
the global financial system." David Korten
"The ability of a party to make a valuable contribution is not dependent
upon its capacity to offer the electorate a genuine government option.
Political parties... act as a vehicle  for the participation of individual
citizens in the political life of the country. ...Marginal or regional
parties tend to raise issues not adopted by national parties. Political
parties provide individual citizens with an opportunity to express an
opinion o­n the policy and functioning of government. Each vote in support
of a party increases the likelihood that its platform will be taken into
account by those who implement policy, and votes for parties with fewer
than 50 candidates are an integral component of a vital and dynamic
democracy. "  Figueroa v Canada (Attorney General) 2003 SCC 37
"Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor
security"...Benjamin Franklin
?The constitution of Canada does not belong either to Parliament, or to the
Legislatures; it belongs to the country and it is there that the citizens
of the country will find the protection of the rights to which they are
entitled? Supreme Court of Canada  A.G. of Nova Scotia and A.G. of Canada,
S.C.R. 1951 pp 32
