Liberal trade minister Chrystia Freeland signing the TPP, February 2016. The House of Commons is expected to vote on the deal in late 2017.
Several Council of Canadians chapters will be mobilizing on November 5 in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
The Council of Canadians Hamilton, South Niagara, London and Guelph chapters will be coming together for a protest outside the constituency office of Chris Bittle, the Liberal Member of Parliament for the riding of St. Catharines.
The South Niagara chapter's promotion on Facebook notes, "Join us outside the Constituency Office of St. Catharines MP, Chris Bittle, 61 Geneva Street, for a Day of Action against the Trans Pacific Partnership -- help us send a message to our MPs that this 'free trade' deal is a bad deal for Canada. It will eliminate good Canadian jobs, increase the cost of pharmaceuticals, make it much harder to address climate change and honour Canada's commitments in the Paris Accord, overrule Indigenous land rights...and make our Internet less open."
