Our country was formed and our history often about becoming ourselves and resisting assimilation. But the Trans Pacific Partnership is as sovereignty-threatening as any threat we've faced. But it's all so peaceful and invisible, tucked (and even bragged about) inside an omniubus bill.
I lament tha our political culture isn't able to recognize or address it. Or perhaps our left-right antipathy has rendered us hopeless and can't imagine really moving forward and make a difference,
Evolution will happen though we may miss it. But why I wrote . . .is that apparently unbeknownst to us, the TPP moves ahead.
"In the words of WikiLeaks' Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange, "If instituted, the TPP's IP regime would trample over individual rights and free expression, as well as ride roughshod over the intellectual and creative commons. If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you're ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs."
Not only in Canada, but very much here.
