Topic: This week as Presidents Calderon (Mexico) and Bush, and Premier Harper (Canada) met in Montebello, Quebec, Canada, many unions, organizations and others gathered to protest the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” (SPP). Today we talk with Stuart Trew of the Council of Canadians and learn what the SPP is, how it impacts trade and “homeland security” practices and why corporations and those in power favor it while there is widespread popular opposition. We’ll also hear about the use of agents provocateurs at the protest.
