A QUESTION OF SOVEREIGNTY
A film by Kevin P. Miller
In this patriotic and sentimental film, international award winning Writer/Director Kevin P. Miller(GENERATION RX, WE BECOME SILENT) exposes how Canadians are being stripped of their personal sovereignty by government agencies — and how free trade deals and other international agreements imperil Canadian democracy.
Quietly, over a period of many years, unconstitutional legislation encompassed in Bills C-51, C-6, and the current Bill C-36 have placed not only basic civil liberties and freedoms at risk, but Canada's national sovereignty as well. The film shares how entangling alliances with groups like the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius, the United States and even multinational corporate interests have become so powerful that they literally threaten to make elected officials in Parliament irrelevant.
A QUESTION OF SOVEREIGNTY discusses why this dramatic shift in the balance of power puts the nation and its people at a vital crossroad early in the 21st century — and why some of the past giants of Canadian politics may hold the answers to Canada's future.

erosion of basic human and civil rights in Canada and elsewhere.
And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
My (Thai) wife does Confucius one better.
Her line (derived from my often quoting the above) is,
"no matter where you go, there I am!" (and she usually is!!).
Thanks for the links Fintan.
I am Canadian, and left for many of the reasons described by Kevin Miller,
(there are many more reasons, but probably no different than anywhere else).
Quebec (my home province) is the most controlled of all... the most "European".
I always felt that when the PTB want to try something out,
Quebec is one of those areas where they test market to
see just how much the people will tolerate.
Quite a bit, by all accounts, (we always seem to be hosting some WTO meeting or another).
Canadians are a docile lot - nice, polite, but very docile.
And smug too, (who wouldn't be living beside the States!).
Unfortunately, this smugness creates an air of superiority
that hides much of what has happened.
However "bad" anything is / becomes, one of the standard responses is:
"Yeah, but nothing like the States!"
In a way, similar to how the west used the USSR for so many years.
I still visit once a year, and in my experience,
there is very little in the way of awareness going on, let alone rebellion.
Hope I'm wrong about that, but truth is they are
currently thrilled that Canadian banks have fared so well,
and still consider Canada to be what it used to be,
what it is supposed to be, what is said to be,
rather than what it has become.
By the time I left, everything I was doing was illegal,
(non-union plumber / electrician), everything I tried
to do was illegal, and everything I thought of doing was illegal,
(though, thankfully, just thinking about it was entirely legal).
But other than that, it's a really great country,
(especially so if you love cold weather for 9 months a year!).

I had an interesting conversation with Pierre Trudeau (yes, THAT P.E.T.) in 1996.
His "vision" of Canada was one of using the "fusion" of the two solitudes (you have to be a Canadian to appreciate the reference) to generate a dynamic that would encourage Canadians to strive for identity as a nation as well as independence from the US. (He seemed to admire the US but was very wary of their influence on the Canadian psyche.)
It was only 5 minutes but what a 5 minutes... _________________ The grand design, reflected in the face of Chaos.

You are most welcome, Kevin.
Finally, a film-maker who will step up to the plate and challenge the AJ film industry, head on.
[AJ makes Fox look credible these days!]
God's speed, sir
I truly appreciate the sentiments here, atm. Years ago, Fintan and I discussed how vital it is for filmmakers/journalists/whatever to simply insist upon the integrity of the information being presented.
without that, we have nothing.
It means a lot that you appreciate the effort I am making towards that end.
