March 28, 2008
Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced today that he will participate in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Summit in Bucharest, Romania, from April 2 to 4, 2008.
Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier, Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Chief of Defence Staff General Rick Hillier will also participate in the NATO Summit.
The North Atlantic Treaty was signed in Washington on April 4, 1949. It was designed to promote the stability of the North Atlantic area and to safeguard the freedom of its people, based on the principles of democracy, individual liberty and international law.
Following the Summit, Prime Minister Harper will travel to Poland, from April 4 to 5, for a working visit.
Now we know!
There's going to be a full court press in Bucharest and if you're not on the team you're not wanted.
Someone should'a thought'a that before outsiders were invited!

j, andy is in for a very rough, very long time because he clearly
feels that foreign influence weakens canada where as i think it
his view has been propounded by the lefties for many moons, but has
one major difficulty: those pesky furriners are so good at so many
things we have come to rely on them, and it does not look likely to
end soon. there used to be a party of sorts for andy's view but there
are too few about to make a serious case! cz

re; Belief in BCE buyout wobbles amid debt crisis. By Chris Sorensen, Thursday, page B1.
We have these days a situation that really needs watching. The item has been on the news but much of the problem is not being discussed, media-wise, at least.
In addition to the $52 billion price tag, which the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan cannot, apparently, afford, and are hoping to interest others banks and investment places, at a time when no one wants to go out on a limb with the American mortgage disaster, which has infected the world's economy, there is cause to be concerned. Who would consider spending money they don't have at a time of impending recession or even depression, besides a mole or plant from competing interests? The ploy is called 5th column, a military term, used by American corporate, to undermine their opposition, and called ASTUTE BUSINESS PRACTICE. (by them)
BCE, or Bell Canada, is not what it used to be. Much of what it used to do is now out-sourced, the service level is less , as is the stock price and pay phones are getting as scarce as hen's teeth, to name just a few problems .
With the O.T.P.P. acting as the main buyer, two American financial companies, Madison Dearborn Partners LLC and Providence Equity Partners Inc., are tagging along as part of the deal, since foreign, American corporations, if they want to get involved, in our communications business, must have a Canadian sponsor to get around the 25% ownership limit imposed on foreign, American investors. This same ploy of tagging along with a Canadian sponsor seems to be repeating itself since the Canada Pension Plan was used as the 'Canadian' , as was Manitoba Telecom Systems, since MTS now 'owns' A. T. and T, from the States , which is now shrouded in 'Canadian' clothing for a share of the communication business.
OTPP was once led by Claude Lamoureux, and those were good years for the pension plan. Now he has been replaced by one Jim Leech and one worries!
When one considers the book by Naomi Klein, 'Shock Doctrine, or Disaster Capitalism' and it's mention of how the corporate world stands to gain much in power and influence if the infrastructure collapses, would it not be wise for most of us to be very, very, watchful? Like, for instance, finding out who the officials representing the BCE buyout consortium are? Considering how Citigroup, Deutsche bank and Royal Bank of Scotland are now backing the bid, under cover of the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan's name.
Next, we can probably expect our governments to remove the 25% limit on foreign American investment in Canadian communications due to pressure from the business lobby infiltrators.
I don't remember most of the history lessons in school being any more interesting than our current history!

A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running
as fast as She could trying not to be late for Bible class.
As she ran she prayed,"Dear Lord, please don't let me be
late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!" While she
was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell,
getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up,
brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran
she once again began to pray, "Dear Lord, please don't let
me be late...But please don't shove me either!"
