Canada/US relations


Recommended Posts

I'm gonna try and hit the Ottawa show:

The Council of Canadians is conducting a ten-city tour called

Crossing The Line: A Citizens' Inquiry on Canada-U.S. Relations.

We are seeking to raise awareness of the dangers of the push from Canadian corporate lobby groups for more economic and social integration with the United States. Each tour stop will focus on an area of concern.

The daytime event will be a hearing, where experts and citizens will present testimonials on Canada-U.S. relations in the context of the focus topic for that city.

It will be presided over by a panel of Commissioners with roots in the community, outstanding professional reputations and a deep concern about the future of Canada – U.S. relations. Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians, will be a Commissioner in each city.

The Council of Canadians will be collecting the information that we gather on the road and incorporating it into a final report.

The evening event, a free public forum, will examine the broader issue of Canada-U.S. relations and the threat to Canadian sovereignty. It will feature Maude Barlow and a panel of local speakers.

Who should decide the future of our country and the nature of our relationship with the United States?

The Canadian Council of Chief Executives? The C.D. Howe Institute? Other corporate lobby groups?

No. Canadians like you should decide.

Join us and participate in a Citizens’ Inquiry on Canada-U.S. Relations and let the Canadian government know where you stand.

Hey, I figured out how to bold .

Too bad there are no Vancouver dates. Among others, I would enjoy seeing Maude Barlow speak. She knows her stuff, having once written a great gook on the FTA called "Parcel of Rogues". I hope there is a strong turnout for these, as Canadians have to support this type of initiative to show that we actually DO care.

PS Does this mean we can expect a bolder Velvet comin' alive in 2005? [color:"purple"]I'm not so sure that's a good thing! :P
