A Question of Sovereignty - a film by Kevin P. Miller
The film is highly manipulative, seeking our emotional identification through the victim testimonials, for example, and less than nuanced in its methods of weaving privacy legislation issues, free trade, and sovereignty issues together. But it has a point to make, as all real documentaries do, and that point is significant in 2011 in that we are witnessing the "selling" of Canada again and again during the reign of the Harperites. If you're not absolutely appalled, you're not paying attention.
