Why CETA is a bad deal for Canada

Canada and the European Union are negotiating a new Comprehensive Economic and
Trade Agreement (CETA). This is a big deal for Canada and so far, negotiations have been quietly taking place behind closed doors.

If CETA is signed it will:

  • Threaten our democracy by putting corporate rights first
  • Encourage privatization of Canada's drinking water and wastewater services
  • Threaten local job creation and "buy-local" policies
  • Cause prescription drug costs to skyrocket by at least $2.8 billion per year
  • Allow big corporations to ignore or challenge environmental regulation

Let's work together to stop this deal.
