US Police to Be Allowed to Operate in Canada?
Armed U.S agents will be able to use their guns while operating on Canadian soil while being immune from Canadian law.
Is This What You Want Canada?!? Pay Attention!! Armed American agents to have immunity from our Canadian laws when working in Canada? >http://ow.ly/LXwHk -Toronto Star
The Harper conservative government could allow armed U.S agents in Canada to be able to use deadly force but not be held accountable under Canadian law. This means they could not be held accountable for potential criminal acts on Canadian soil. Considering U.S police conduct of late, is this a good move? The deal hasn’t been ratified yet.. Should it be?
Our own police sometimes have trouble following our laws, Imagine what could happen if we allow armed American agents to operate in Canada while exempt from our laws! Share this! then contact your local MP, write your editor, tools to do so are attached below.
Armed US agents could have immunity from prosecution when working in Canada >http://on.thestar.com/1FYMUVA -Toronto Star
The Toronto Star writes: “Armed U.S. border guards could soon be posted to Union Station — and if they ever use their guns, they may not be held accountable in a Canadian court.”
“If U.S. government agents who are on duty on Canadian soil are only going to be liable to be prosecuted in the United States for potential criminal acts in Canada, what does that mean for access to justice for people affected by those actions?” asked Josh Paterson, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association.
“Is a Canadian really going to be able to access whatever system of redress that might exist in the United States for actions that take place here in Canada? Is the U.S. criminal justice system going to deal seriously with alleged offences committed by their agents here in Canada? We just don’t know. If they’re being told that they are allowed to carry weapons in Canada, the only thing you can surmise from that is that it’s anticipated that they may be using force in Canada,” he said.”

Surprise. Stephen Harper’s U.S. border deal does imperil Canadian sovereignty >http://bit.ly/16a81E2 – “While details of the pact remain sparse, it appears to give American agents working in so-called “integrated teams” the power of Canadian peace officers — including the right to carry weapons and use them on Canadian soil.”, “The U.S. government wants American police agents working in Canada exempted from Canadian law. Don’t assume the Harper government will refuse.” writes Toronto Star columnist Thomas Walkom.

“In the last budget, in the “jobs budget” there was a provision that allows the CIA and the FBI to come across the border and arrest Canadians on Canadian soil. And I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist with a tin foil hat just saying it out loud but it’s true. It happened and there was no debate. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.” -Rick Mercer said http://bit.ly/19471Uc, http://bit.ly/REGodw
MP Elizabeth May writes “We are passing legislation to allow US law enforcement agents onto Canadian territory to enforce US laws. What would Laura Secord have made of that plot? Had she discovered it with her wandering cow, would she have turned Stephen Harper in?” >http://bit.ly/19T8eRn
American Cops Don’t Belong in Canada
>http://huff.to/18WpEgg – “A few years ago, Stephen Harper told us that by the time he was done in office, we wouldn’t recognize Canada. How true, and troubling, those words have become… Now we are now witnessing the Americanization of our law enforcement. Armed American police officers will now operate on Canadian soil.”- Sean Casey MP for Charlottetown, P.E.I

“With the onslaught of recent “foiled terror plots” we have seen here in Canada, one would think that there is an ongoing threat from either outside forces or from radicalized homegrown domestic extremists as we are being led to believe. However in each and every circumstance there is a hidden hand at play and in its grip lies a sinister motive to generate the fear of an attack in the minds of the Canadian people.” -Press For Truth
