Canadian, U.S. and Mexican officials held secretive meeting on integration

The details of items discussed at a "secretive meeting" held last year in Banff are starting to emerge. The meeting was attended by politicians from Canada, U.S. and Mexico along with Corporate Executives and Top Military Brass.

But the reason this information is finally coming out into the open is not because our political leaders are open and transparent - it's because people are forcing this out in the open through the use of such instruments as Freedom of Information Laws.

The topics under discussion at these secret meetings such as "integration" are so anti-democratic, distasteful and unpopular with the citizenry, that politicians and their corporate masters are talking about using "stealth" to achieve their objectives.

In other words, deception, dishonesty, cover-up, masquarade, are all fair game when it comes to fooling people into thinking this is something that it is not. And politicians are apparently advocating such an approach. TILMA anyone?

And we live in a democracy? If this was happening in any other country the bombs would be flying in the name of liberating the country from the "evildoers", and bringing freedom and democracy to the poor downtrodden masses.

Just to verify that you have nailed this one down accurately, here is an article from the USA on the same meeting.

"North America activists plotted ’stealth’ strategy

Details of secret Banff meeting released as part of FOIA request

By Joseph Farah

WASHINGTON – Participants in a high-level, closed door, three-day conference on the integration of the three North American nations debated whether openness about goals was preferred to a stealthy policy of building infrastructure before a vision of the end result was even laid out to the people of the U.S., Mexico and Canada, according to notes obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Official notes taken on a session on “Border Infrastructure and Continental Prosperity” at the North American Forum in Banff, Canada, last September, reveal the internal debate over continued secrecy.
