NDP has "Three Amigos" meeting covered
Those New Democrats think of everything.
Every Canadian reporter here to cover the "three amigos" meeting here in New Orleans has arrived at the fancy boutique hotel to find an envelope from the NDP awaiting them in their rooms.
"Welcome to New Orleans!" states a letter from NDP MP Peter Julian, who also happens to be staying here at the International Hotel. Quite the coincidence -- I'm wondering how he knew where we were staying, since most of us just found out this morning where the PMO had booked us, when we checked in for the trip.
The letter goes on to explain how the NDP has been trying to stop the Security and Prosperity Partnership -- the agreement to encourage more co-operation between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, which critics say is a back-door strategy toward North American integration.
The NDP's package for reporters includes a little anti-SPP cartoon put together by the Canadian Labour Congress.
