Ottawa chapter activist Phil Soubliere and Frank Bayerl have let us know that the motion on the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) brought forward by Ottawa city councillor Diane Holmes on February 22 has been passed!
It will be added to our web-map noting municipalities across Canada that have passed expressions of concern about CETA, www.canadians.org/ceta.
