Harper hurting Canada

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is trying very hard to negotiate a Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is trying very hard to negotiate a Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

This deal will jeopardize our governments to enact legislation at every level. It will give European companies the right to challenge any Canadian law that affects their profit, including areas of health care, education, pharmaceuticals, the environment, our water, our public services in our courts. This agreement would hamper our governments at every level from supporting local economies, poverty, hunger and homelessness.

Already, more than 40 municipalities have demanded to be exempt from this draconian agreement. Opposition has already been expressed by labour unions, environmental groups, the Council of Canadians and others. Let your MP in Ottawa know that you are opposed to this agreement.
