Progressive trade is something that we hear a lot about. The federal government has staked its lot on rhetorically changing the nature of trade agreements.
Progressive trade is often a nebulous concept. That is why the Council of Canadians and Unifor are trying to put some meat on the idea. On April 20th and 21st, they held two Hamilton events, a Unifor People’s Trade Town Hall and a Council of Canadians regional trade forum. It was hosted by the Hamilton chapter of the Council of Canadians and Unifor.
