Filmmaker to visit

The public can participate in a question and answer session with filmmaker Paul Manly who will attend the Red Deer screening of his documentary about the Security and Prosperity Partnership. You, Me and the SPP: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule will screen Tuesday, Oct. 27, 7 p.m., at Red Deer College, Room 1328. Manly was the filmmaker who captured three police officers, pretending to be masked protesters, trying to incite violence at the SPP leaders summit in Montebello, Que., in 2007. The footage was posted on YouTube and was seen by hundreds of thousands of people, resulting in the police provocateurs becoming an international story. Opponents of the SPP believe it is an undemocratic body, and a threat to the sovereignty of Canada, Mexico and the United States. The film is is being hosted by the Red Deer Chapter of the Council of Canadians and Red Deer College Social Work program. More information can be found at www.youmespp.com.
