Election postpones Canada-EU trade offers; now is the time to debate the deal

MEDIA RELEASE

Election postpones Canada-EU trade offers; now is the time to debate the deal, says Council of Canadians

Ottawa -- The Council of Canadians is encouraged the federal and provincial governments have postponed an exchange of offers with the European Union before a seventh round of Canada-EU free trade negotiations next week. The organization is asking the provinces to make any offers public prior to bargaining away public policy with the EU, in light of upcoming provincial elections and new revelations the trade deal is worth half what the Harper government is promising.

Time to scrap the summits, build alternatives

In 25 years of struggle against the global corporate agenda, I can't remember summits that were so thoroughly ridiculed by the people and the press beforehand. I'd like to think that progressive groups such as the Council of Canadians have had something to do with that, but really, could the media possibly have resisted mocking the billion dollar boondoggle of the G8 and G20 summits?
