We are a Newfoundland-based citizens action group opposed to the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) that has been negotiated between Canada and Europe.
We believe that CETA has been falsely marketed to us by the current federal government as a trade agreement that will bring us economic benefits. These benefits, which are highly dubious, are a smoke screen for the real intent of CETA. CETA is a corporate-rights treaty designed to increase the power of global corporations at the expense of our traditional sovereign rights.
The unprecedented secrecy and refusal to inform the public about the limitations CETA puts on democratic decision making have led us to believe that our government is not acting in the interests of the public that elected it.
For an explanation of these strong assertions we invite you to check out the rest of our website.
