Niagara, Ontario – The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement is a broad “next generation” international trade and investment agreement that is being negotiated behind closed doors. TPP is not primarily about trade, but is a broad agreement that aims to change Canadian public policy without domestic debate.
The TPP threatens tens-of-thousands of Canadian jobs, will lead to higher prescription drug costs, and threatens our health care system and our environment. Learn what the TPP will mean for Canada, for our community, and how to stop it.
The Niagara Regional Labour Council is hosting a conference on the TPP, Saturday October 22 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Goodwill Stokes Centre, 36 Page Street, St. Catharines.
Speakers include Hadrain Martins-Kirkwood from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Emmay Mach, People’s Climate, Natalie Mehra, Ontario Health Coalition, Steve Maher, York University, John Bacher, author and Bruce Allen Niagara Regional Labour Council. The event is free and lunch is provided.
