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.
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?

New hard-hitting report details Prime Minister's ‘assault on Democracy'
A new report by NYU Law professor Robert Howse suggests the Harper government has broken the law by not making the full Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) text publicly available.
Stuart Trew argues, if this is possible and it's possibly illegal not to, then we should pressure the Harper government to release the texts.
Do you think Harper is violating the law by not publicly releasing the CETA texts?
On Friday, November 1, immediately following Harper's address to the Conservative Convention, the Pros & Cons teach-in took place. rabble.ca was glad to host the livestream of the event.
