"Continental integration by stealth"

“[N]othing less than the complete integration of Canada’s military, security and foreign policy into the decision-making and operating systems of the U.S.”

Sounds scary, no? It’s how Michael Byers opens his editorial in today’s Star, in which he says that close scrutiny of a report by a Canada-US military committee called the Bi-National Planning Group would lead us to a state of mild subjugation rather than cooperation.

Four years ago, when they began their study, it seemed a fairly laughable suggestion, but with Harper’s conservative government in power as they release their findings (which is a little too convenient to be a complete coincidence) it’s suddenly not quite as funny.
