Open letter to Canada Trade Agreement Secretariat, about the FIPA Canada-China trade deal

Dear Canada Trade Agreement Secretariat,
I am writing to state my strenuous opposition to the FIPA Canada-China trade deal, and my just as strenuous opposition to the undemocratic manner in which it has been negotiated, with neither meaningful public consultation nor meaningful parliamentary debate.
FIPA represents a reckless compromise to Canada’s resource sovereignty, environmental protections, and even our very democracy. It must at least be subjected to meaningful analysis and debate, and not be forced as an inordinate political, economic, and ecological burden on our children and grandchildren.
Sincerely,
YT

  1. Dear Canada Trade Agreement Secretariat,
    I want to express my opposition to the FIPA Canada-China trade deal and ask, at least, to show transparancy and let people know exactly what these agreements are about.
    Canada has always been perceived as a nation that is proud and takes care of its environment above all. Let’s keep that international vision alive and let’s show the world that we can do both, provide for the people of this country and respect and take care of the environment at the same time.
    Sincerely,
