The SPP Leadership Love Fest

Would Harper and Bush just get a room, please!

Harper praises Bush at 'Three Amigos' summit
Bush compliments Harper for leadership at NATO

I don't know what leadership Harper demonstrated at NATO?
Does going along with the Bush administration count as leadership?


Leaders to talk up trade

'Three amigos' defend NAFTA at annual summit amid criticism on U.S. presidential campaign trail


Barlow, who helped organize some of the high-profile protests surrounding last year's summit in Montebello, Que., said she's come to keep Canadians' attention on a deal that she alleges is being crafted in the dark, to serve the interests of big money.

"It's bad, it's elitist, it's corporate-driven," Barlow said of the SPP. She was on a tour yesterday of New Orleans' Ward Nine, still devastated after the Hurricane Katrina floods in 2005.

"It's still got cars overturned. It's still got homeless people," she said, decrying the contrast between that scene and the massive security for the leaders at some of the most expensive New Orleans hotels.

"The Security and Prosperity Partnership is prosperity for the few, security for the few and what's left in New Orleans for everybody else," Barlow said.




I saw somewhere else someone was referring to the 3 amigos as the 3 diablos! A more accurate description.
