email fired off to Harper regarding the SPP

Dear Prime Minister Harper,

I oppose the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) because the SPP meetings could result in the watering-down of human rights and environmental protections (such as they are) in Canada. I am particularly concerned by the deregulation of pesticides and food-related innovations, and by the possible development of polluting and land-destroying natural resource industries.

Do you need me to remind you that it is your job to defend the people and the land from such predatory exploitation?

The community in which I live is not surviving the current economic climate of rubber stamped environmental assessments, non-unionized workers, and unaccountable natural resource industries that do not pay the community for damage to our properties and roads. You must take the bull by the horns, and do not sell us out to profiteers!

Do you need to be reminded that the desires of the SPP attendees do not represent the desires of the majority of people in Canada? Please give priority to democracy, human rights, and land conservation.

I look forward to receiving your immediate and positive reply.
