Council of Canadians challenging TPP at “consultations” in Saint John today

Monday, September 26, 201

WHAT: The Council of Canadians Saint John chapter is challenging the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) at the local hearing today. The Council is available for comment on the controversial corporate rights pact.

WHO: Leticia Adair and Paula Tippett, Saint John chapter, Council of Canadians

WHEN: 10:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., Monday, September 26, 2016.

WHERE: Marco Polo Room, Hilton Saint John Hotel, 1 Market Square. Saint John, New Brunswick.

WHY:

“As the Parliamentary committee moves through the country, more and more people are discovering what Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz calls the ‘worst trade deal ever’. In fact, all U.S. presidential candidates are opposing the TPP,” says says Sujata Dey, Trade Campaigner with the Council of Canadians. “We don’t want this deal which would destroy 58,000 jobs, give more rights to corporations, and put our environment and health at risk.”
