Building Opposition to Canada’s Corporate “Trade” Agenda
An Evening with Stuart Trew Trade Campaigner, Council of Canadians
and Brenda Sayers, Hupacasath First Nation
Free trade and investment deals like NAFTA promote and lock in the rights of corporations to make a profit. At the same time they undermine the ability of communities to make decisions in their own best interest. Every new deal takes the corporate agenda a step further, and they are virtually impossible to cancel once ratified. The Canadian Government has signed, or is in the process of negotiating and seeking to ratify a variety of new corporate rights treaties.
