More about Stephen Harper’s Secret Deal With China

Canada is signing a new Free Trade deal with China which gives it a lot of say in our economy and politics . . . 

 for 31 years!

Check out these links about the new FIPA Trade Deal:

Against the deal:

Personally, I’m against the deal, because it gives corporations too much power to control resources: Canadian corporations (such as mining etc) in China, and Chinese corporations in Canada.  The citizens of BOTH countries have little or no say in how business is done.

I encourage everyone to sign the petition against the deal here:

For the Chinese people, the Canadian people, this deal will have ZERO benefit.

For Chinese and Canadian corporations, this is a chance to exploit each country’s people, damage the environment even more, and put more money in the pockets of those lazy, rich corporate bums on the golf course.

JOIN IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THIS LOSE-LOSE DEAL!

JOIN AGAINST HARPER AND THE CONSERVATIVES IN SELLING OUT OUR COUNTRY!

Chinese citizens (中国老百姓) and Canadians will both lose out in this deal!

Let the citizens of both lands stand against foolish free trade deals that just make the richer wealthier and the poor more destitute!

Cheers,

Dimitri
