The North American Security and Prosperity Initiative (NASPI)

New Frontiers (for colonialism!): Building a 21st Century Canada-United States Partnership in North America, April 2004: A project of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCE) launched in January 2003 to develop a strategy for shaping Canada's future within North America and Beyond.


Ever since September 11, 2001 (False-Flag Op), there has been no question that the management of the Canada-United States border must evolve. The two countries quickly agreed on the 30-point Smart Border action plan in late 2001, and much has been and continues to be achieved under this umbrella. Our two countries have been working closely, sharing information, developing and deploying new tools for managing risk, expanding border infrastructure and experimenting with new ways to speed the flows of low-risk goods and travellers while improving security overall. (parenthesis mine)

As the CCCE suggested in launching ITS North American initiative, however, much more can and must be done. The CCCE continues to believe that a comprehensive strategy must encompass five pillars:

  • First, it must move beyond border management to the true reinvention of North American borders.
  • Second, efforts to smooth customs processing must be reinforced by a sweeping effort to reduce the costs and delays at the border caused by regulatory differences.
  • Third, and linked to regulatory issues, it must address issues in the resource sector to ensure that trade flows respect the twin principles of security of access and security of supply.
  • Fourth, it must recognize that all of the progress Canada desires on the economic front depends on a credible reinvigoration of the North American defence alliance.
  • Fifth, it must consider the development of a range of new institutions to manage the deepening of the Canada-United States relationship.

From: David Rockefeller (Founder of the Trilateral Commission)
Address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, June 1991.

"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
