Public Record - Challenging the Security Partnership of North America


The group “Integrate This!” hosts a conference to explore concerns about the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America, March 31–April 1, 2007. Established in 2005 by Canada, the United States, and Mexico, the SPP’s aim is to address security, prosperity, and quality of life issues affecting partnership members.

This March 31st session, entitled “The Democratic Deficit,” explores the role of governments in addressing concerns about the SPP.

Peter Julian (NDP MP) explores what he calls the “myth of prosperity” put forth by NAFTA and the SPP. Elizabeth May (Green Party leader) speaks about her party’s criticisms of the SPP, emphasizing border security and human rights issues. José Almazán (member of Mexican congress for the Party of Democratic Revolution (PRD)) discusses his view of the SPP as a semi-colonial agreement. Mr. Almazán also touches on Mexican energy policies that will be affected by the SPP.

Throughout the session, Avi Lewis (documentary filmmaker and conference moderator) poses questions to the panellists.
