To read about how The Council of Canadians and its civil society allies have been challenging NAFTA in Ottawa this past week, please click here.
The Council of Canadians is working with civil society allies to both challenge the existing North American Free Trade Agreement and put forward a positive vision for a renegotiated NAFTA 2.0 as negotiators from Canada, the United States and Mexico are in Ottawa for a third round of talks (September 23-27).
With NAFTA negotiations starting in Ottawa today, my mind is on the interconnections between climate, social and trade justice.
The Council of Canadians Peterborough-Kawarthas chapter filled a bus (and four cars) for the Curve Lake First Nation Pow Wow on September 16.
Today, in response to news reports that the proportionality chapter of NAFTA – which forces Canada to export quotas of energy to the United States – might be extended to Mexico during renegotiations, the Council of Canadians is available for comment.
