Council of Canadians on problems with EU-Canada “Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement” (CETA), Vancouver date Oct 12

MetroVanWatch has obtained a notice from the Council of Canadians about their “Communities are not for sale!” meetings in BC. Please read below for details. A meeting is set for Vancouver the evening of October 12.  

National CETA tour west coast dates – Abbotsford, Vancouver & Victoria

Details of events in Abbotsford (Oct 11th), Vancouver (Oct 12th) and Victoria (Oct 13th) are below.

————————————————–

Why CETA is a bad deal for communities:

Canada and the European Union are negotiating a new Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and negotiations have been quietly taking place behind closed doors.

If CETA is signed it will:

• Threaten our local democracy by putting corporate rights first
• Encourage privatization of drinking water and wastewater services
• Threaten local job creation and “buy-local” policies
• Cause prescription drug costs to skyrocket by at least $2.8 billion per year
• Allow big corporations to ignore or challenge environmental regulation

Let’s work together to stop this deal!

This event is part of a cross-country tour with the Council of Canadians and CUPE.
