Here are a few other agreements that have been signed In the name of the SPP between Canada, United States and Mexico.

Official SPP Press Release:
June 29, 2005 -From the office of Information and Public Affairs
Actual Document:
Signatures are at the bottom, although it does state the document does not intend to create any legal obligations under international law but it is a signed agreement.
It seems most of these agreements are done through MOU's (Memorandum of Understanding)
What is a memorandum Of Understanding and is it legally binding?
"In international relations, MoUs fall under the broad category of treaties and should be registered in the United Nations treaty database. In practice and in spite of the United Nations' Legal Section insistence that registration be done to avoid 'secret diplomacy,' MOUs are sometimes kept confidential. As a matter of law, the title of MoU does not necessarily mean the document is binding or not binding under international law."
So we a riding a very fine line here.. Even the U.N says these Mou's should be registered to avoid "secret diplomacy"- secret diplomacy is exactly what this is!
SPP Official Press Release:
August 12, 2005- Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh and United States Ambassador David Wilkins signed a MOU to enable simultaneous exchange and comparison of information between national laboratories to speed up response times and capacities when managing infectious disease outbreaks.
Public health Agency (Canada)
You can see it clearly states that "This is part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership"

Actual Document:

* Please understand that for this myth, I'm simply trying to establish the fact that agreements HAVE been signed. Not debating the actual agreement at this time..
SPP Official Press Release:
11/01/2005- National Energy Board and Federal Energy Reglatory Commission
"Canada and the United States Sign Memorandum of Understanding on Pipeline Safety"

Actual Document:
SPP Official Press Release:
November 11, 2005
The governments of Canada and the United States have negotiated an "Open Skies" air transport agreement.
This agreement exands upon the Open Skies Agreement with the United States.

I could really keep going and going with examples of signed agreements, all in the name of the SPP. The very fact that they state there was no formal agreement signed, should make us question why? If this is Partnership is so great for Canada, United States and Mexico, why not sign your name on the dotted line? Could this be a way to avoid liability to the citizens?
Is this how they are able to affect policy and not involve our political process?
How can our government officials participate in these activities on tax payer money but fail to register their Mou's to the UN?
How can establishing a "trilateral regulatory cooperation" not undermine our national sovereignty?
"According to the SPP website, this dialogue will create new supra-national organizations to "coordinate" border security, health policy, economic and trade policy, and energy policy between the governments of Mexico, Canada, and the United States. As such, it is but an extension of NAFTA- and CAFTA-like agreements that have far less to do with the free movement of goods and services than they do with government coordination and management of international trade." How can all this happen without signed agreements?
