Many people thought the Trans-Pacific Partnership would fall apart without the U.S. but recent media reports suggest the Canadian government is now trying to push the massive corporate rights deal forward. Swift action is needed to stop this from happening.

One of U.S. President Donald Trump’s first acts was to remove the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. While we profoundly disagree with Trump on numerous issues, we welcome this rejection of the TPP.

Thousands of people across this country have called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to also reject the TPP. Thanks to thousands of Council of Canadians supporters like you, and our chapter activists who are working in communities across Canada, the International Trade Committee heard from more than 60,000 Canadians – 95 per cent of whom oppose the TPP.
(See the committee report, April 2017: http://www.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?Language=e&Mode=1&Parl=42&Ses=1&DocId=8828808&File=114#32 )

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has indicated the TPP won’t be politically viable without the U.S., but Prime Minister Trudeau hasn’t pulled Canada from the deal, and refuses to say whether our trade negotiators are working with Australia, New Zealand and Japan to somehow move the deal forward. François-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s new international trade minister, is heading to Vietnam May 20-21 with the other TPP countries, possibly to try to salvage a deal.

Prime Minister Trudeau must immediately formally withdraw from the TPP. There is no reason for the federal government to wait to make a decision on an agreement that most analysts – and even his own trade minister – say has collapsed, especially when so many Canadians oppose it.

Take action! Send a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and Minister Champagne and demand that the Trudeau government withdraw from TPP immediately.
This is the text of the letter:

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

Recently, U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Your government has not been clear about what it intends to do about the TPP. I understand that International Trade Minister François-Philippe Champagne will be going to Vietnam May 20-21 with other TPP countries to possibly try to salvage the deal.

I am concerned about how the TPP will give corporations the right to sue the Canadian government over policies or regulations that affect corporate profits. The TPP will extend the patent length (and profits) of pharmaceutical corporations by delaying the introduction of lower cost generic drugs. It will slash the domestic content requirement for automobiles, putting thousands of autoworker jobs at risk, and it will undermine family farmers by opening up the Canadian dairy market to imports.

While your government consulted with Canadians about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, it's not clear if you were listening. More than 60,000 Canadians and the overwhelming majority – 95 per cent of them – opposed Canada ratifying the TPP.

I urge you to listen and do the right thing: withdraw Canada from the TPP immediately.

THANKS DR3D9 and what REAL (ACTUAL) PROOF do you have, that shows that Canada is really banqRUPT??????????

I ASK simply do to everything that I read so far shows that Canada IS NOT banqRUPT...

Here`s an EXAMPLE of what I mean:


The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Canada was worth 1550.54 billion US dollars in 2015.

The gross domestic product (GDP) measures of national income and output for a given country's economy. The gross domestic product (GDP) is equal to the total expenditures for all final goods and services produced within the country in a stipulated period of time. This page provides - Canada GDP - actual values, historical data, forecast, chart, statistics, economic calendar and news.



the 'Canadian Federation of Independent Business' (CFIB).

Federal (Canada): .........$718,038,426,334.47
Provincial / Territorial: $633,604,038,975.38
Total: ..........................$1,351,642,465,309.85

Try NOT TO forget DR3D9, that what applies to America DOESN`T necessarily automatically apply to Canada!!
