U.S. Officers to Make Arrests in Canada: A Clear Threat to SovereigntySubmitted by PWA on Thu, 07/12/2012 - 10:45
I know, I know, many people will try to brush this off as no big deal. So what? If bad guys cross into Canada we need to be able to nab them right?
My point is why now? My point is why sneak this into an omnibus bill so there is little public debate? This is all about boiling the frog to death (us) so that we don’t realize we are cooked. We must be alert to the fact that this is part of a much bigger trend we are seeing. A move toward ending sovereignty. A move toward global government in which there are no free states in which to hide. Many people have talked about Canada being a safe place to go. Guess not…
When the Conservative government passed its controversial omnibus budget bill last month, it included new powers for certain U.S. law enforcement agents that critics say could have ramifications for Canadian sovereignty.
This means they’ll be armed and have the powers to arrest suspects in Canadian territory.
“This is a highly controversial integrated border enforcement program that jeopardizes Canadian sovereignty and potentially compromises the personal privacy of individual Canadians,” wrote NDP MP Brian Masse, critic for Canada-U.S. border issues.
