The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a wide-reaching trade agreement between Canada, the U.S., Mexico and nine other Pacific Rim countries. It was negotiated in secret by the Harper government.
Prime Minister Trudeau has promised to listen to Canadians’ concerns about the TPP and act on what he hears. The window for the public to send briefs has been extended to January 27, 2017 – so we need to keep the pressure on!
After years of secret talks where only cleared advisors and lobbyists were consulted – with no input from Parliament, civil society organizations, or people like you – a full democratic accounting of this far-reaching deal is long overdue.
If the TPP is ratified corporations will have unprecedented privilege and power. And it will directly affect you, your family, your community and the future of Canada.
