In case you are unaware (which would be no surprise because of the secrecy behind this deal) CETA stands for the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement between Europe and Canada. It is not just about trade though. This agreement will allow companies to sue municipalities and Canadians companies for creating policies that go against their bottom line and increases the privatization of our public services.
The Red Deer City Council has already passed a motion to not agree to this (http://www.canadians.org/node/4471), mainly because when they requested information on the CETA, they were not given any. When an agreement has such a huge effect on the municipalities, they deserve information to be kept updated because they too represent the people.
“Harper is under enormous pressure from corporate lobby groups and the media to do whatever he has to do to get a deal done with Europe. What will this cost our public services, the environment and local democracy?”
