The Unmitigated Gall

The Softwood Lumber Slush Fund

Canada Forks Over $450 Million to Bush

Regretably, the big news across Canada at the moment is not that the Bush-lackey Neocon Prime Minister Stephen Harper says that the USraeli Ziocon Lebanon atrocity was "measured" and "reasonable."

The BIG NEWS is that Harper's Conservative government will now proceed with legislation to implement an extremely controversial "sellout" Softwood Lumber agreement with the US. Why should this be of interest to Americans and Bush-haters everywhere?

Washington International Trade Lawyer, Elliot Feldman claims that the deal, negotiated by Bush and his Canadian lackey, "Steve" (as Bush calls him) Harper, will see $450 million funnelled straight past Congress and the US treasury, and will go instead, directly to the Bush Whitehouse.

Feldman has extensive experience in the North American Free Trade Agreement. His practice concentrates on all forms of trade remedies affecting the movement of goods and services across international borders. He advises foreign governments, American and foreign corporations on matters of trade policy and litigates international trade disputes in all relevant forums in the United States.

On August 21st, Feldman told an Ottawa meeting:

"Will the Parliament of Canada accept responsibility for possibly tipping the balance in American politics in preserving the control of Congress by the president's party?" This softwood lumber agreement is an historic moment in part because of that proposition, and it's up to this Parliament to decide whether it will accept the responsibility. "

Martin signed an agreement agreeing to merge Canada with the US and Mexico, as did Vicente Fox and George W. Bush. None of the leaders passed the agreement by their ELECTED parliaments for approval.

Harper refers to this Christo-fascist Bush occupation of America, as "his shining light," as he campaigned all over Alberta with pretty boy Floyd, ol Ralphie Reed of Abramoff money laundry distinction.> Elliot Feldman's report

Although Canada has won virtually every legal action taken out against the U.S. under NAFTA and the WTO, the Bush government has stonewalled and disregarded every single ruling. The new Harper/Bush Softwood Lumber deal has been vociferously blasted all across Canada, and opposition parties, business analysts and even trans-national logging companies are all outraged. Although the logging-lackey Neocon Premier of British Columbia, Gordon Campbell (a convicted criminal who was busted for drunk-driving in Maui in January 2003, ~while Premier) was the first to capitulate and endorse the deal, even amongst the logging corps there's been a vitual consensus that this was an exceedingly stupid deal.
