Canada-Colombia FTA pulled from order paper… again!

According to NDP International Trade Critic Peter Julian, the Conservatives pulled Bill C-23, ratification legislation for the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement off the House of Commons order paper on Wednesday because of continued opposition from NDP and Bloc MPs. Julian says there’s no doubt the bill will be coming back, possibly in a few weeks time pending an election call. The failure to get this trade agreement through the House is surely nagging at Trade Minister Stockwell Day, and it is a sign that massive civil society opposition in Canada is having an impact.
