Trudeau says Canada exploring free trade deal with China

Published on Sep 22, 2016

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada is exploring a free trade agreement with China, as he hosts
his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang in Ottawa.

Six months after announcing exploratory talks on a new Canada-China Free Trade Agreement, the Trudeau government has finally announced a limited public consultation.

But the online form doesn’t even allow you to say you oppose the deal!

And there are plenty of reasons: https://canadians.org/blog/trudeau-pursues-free-trade-china-implications-pipelines-indigenous-rights-water-protection not to want a free trade agreement with China:

•More potential corporate lawsuits over environmental protection legislation
•Increased water pollution and bottled water takings
•Trampled Indigenous rights
•Further tar sands expansion

Prime Minister Trudeau knows that 47 per cent of Canadians oppose a deal with China. That’s why he’s trying to sweep these consultations under the rug.

Tell him to stop Canada-China free trade talks immediately, and hold meaningful public and First Nations consultations.

The point of any free trade agreement should be to better the lives of people in both countries, not to grant rights to corporations and push fossil fuels.
