Yesterday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated, "It’s difficult to imagine a world where Canada would turn its back on [the Trans-Pacific Partnership given it includes] three of its top five trading partners. We established very clearly during the campaign that we’re a pro-trade party."
Today, The Council of Canadians delivered a petition signed by 20,000 people from across this country who can imagine a world where fair trade is prioritized over corporate rights agreements like the TPP.
Member of Parliament Tracey Ramsey accepted the two boxes of petitions at the doors that lead into the House of Commons.
Ramsey represents the southern Ontario riding of Essex, is the NDP trade critic, and is a member of the Standing Committee on International Trade.
