Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, a post-FTA quasi-government think-tank dedicated to compulsory tariff-free trade (only in financial services) and other globalist faves. APEC conference delegates and organization officials consciously represent “economies” rather than “countries”. Don’t confuse this organization with the Association for the Preservation of the English Language in Canada, a far-right anti-Quebec offshoot of the already-out-of-sight-right National Citizen’s Coalition which is now locked deep in the Conservative Party’s closet, or with OPEC, the oil producer’s cartel that made the Saudis so rich they were able to create and fund the Taliban without anyone being willing to risk pointing the finger at them for doing it. Sensible people should be equally nervous about all of these organizations.
