“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.”
