You, Me and the SPP: A filmmaker's journey

From the youtube provocateur expose to being blacklisted as a spammer, making a film about the secretive trilateral process, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), has been an interesting journey.

You, Me and the SPP

The SPP appears dead for now, but similar toxic corporate and government machinations continue. Join rabble.ca in Ottawa this Thursday for the premiere of a new documentary on the SPP.

You, me and the SPP

| Filmmaker Paul Manly examines the Security and Prosperity Partnership in his latest film. He discusses what he learned about this project for deeper integration between the U.S. and Canada.

The SPP is dead. Let's keep it that way

The SPP is dead. Let's keep in that way.

With virtually no fanfare or media analysis, one of the most transformative agreements ever signed by Canada and the US (and Mexico) is officially dead. The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), the formal expression of a corporate lobbying campaign called deep integration, is no more. Its official US government website declared last month: "The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) is no longer an active initiative. There will not be any updates to this site." (It's been edited since to be a little less brutal). 

We should celebrate. It seems the economic crisis had a silver lining.
