NEWS RELEASE · 19th March 2012
Council of Canadians
ACTION ALERT: Sign the CETA petition - Stop the Canada-EU trade negotiations

Petition Here

Canada and the European Union have nearly completed negotiations on a sweeping trade deal called the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) but still Canadians and their elected representatives have had no say on what the proposed deal should look like -- or whether we should be negotiating at all. Leaked copies of the negotiating text and public statements about the deal make it clear that CETA offers little to Canadians while posing far too many unnecessary risks to our social services, environment, public water and democracy. It's time to put a stop to the CETA negotiations until public consultations can take place.

Canada's international trade minister has boasted that his European free trade push is the “most ambitious plan of its kind in history” – yet the close-to-complete agreement is still cloaked in secrecy.

Last week, councillors in Toronto and Thorold, Ontario joined 26 other municipalities in calling for exemptions from CETA, and for a full public debate on the pact. Another 23 communities have expressed concern about CETA restrictions on local government powers. Together, these municipalities represent almost four million Canadians.

Fear of what exactly?
Comment by R1chard Jenn1ss on 19th March 2012

Diversifying your trading partners is a good idea.

Diversifying your industry is a good idea as well. Look at what happened when soft wood lumber industry collapsed!
Terrace felt the impact. Where was CUPE then?

I don't believe this fear.
As a tax payer, more competition in the tendering process is good.
It's a global economy and if we have to be competitive on the world stage for people to buy from us - then municipalities as well should be competitive to do more with less just
like the rest of us...
