TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP  How will the TPP affect our neighbourhoods, our schools and our communities?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a broad trans-pacific trade and investment pact. In Canada, concerns with the TPP include: how it could lead to the dismantling of Canada's important supply management regimes for dairy, poultry and egg production; the race-to-the-bottom potential in a proposed regulatory harmonization chapter; extreme intellectual-property protections for big drug companies that would limit access to life-saving medicines; investor-state provisions that would allow companies to sue governments over rules to protect the environment; government procurement restrictions, and copyright rules that undermine internet freedom.

The TPP is extremely detrimental for the democratic authority and decision-making power of municipalities.  The TPP negotiation period was extremely secretive and did not include Canadian parliamentarians or provincial and municipal governments but did include representation from some of the world’s largest corporations.  Now that negotiations are concluded, the final TPP agreement cannot be amended.     Read more at http://canadians.org/tpp
