I applaud their efforts for taking action to stand up for the principle of fairness. They believe in trade, knowing that the factories in Wallonia once sent products across Europe and around the world, but they don't believe in handing over all their rights to corporations just to get it.
The leaked draft is supposed to accompany the transatlantic deal's final signing later this month in Brussels.
The agreement has faced opposition in Europe.
Trudeau has been using the G20 as a venue to attempt to frame the contentious Canada-EU trade deal as a progressive pact.
It hasn't left the EU yet, after all.

The Harper government has been booted from power, and the U.K. has voted to leave the European Union. Both its national parties are in meltdown, and its new prime minister says she will negotiate her country's exit from the EU -- something that must happen within two years, once formal notice is given.
Only when the fruits of globalization are enjoyed by all segments of the society, especially the low-income and middle-class, would globalization be more acceptable politically and socially by broad segments of the population.

U.K. citizens may believe that they will have an easier time moving to Canada than the Americans. This is quite understandable since Canada shares so many things with the U.K. However, U.K. citizens will be disappointed to learn that none of this makes it any easier for them to move to Canada.
EU politicians demanded Saturday that the U.K. quickly cut its ties with the 28-nation bloc.
They feel the decision was fuelled by anti-immigration sentiments.
What truly scares me is that if Trumpism can make the unthinkable happen in the UK, could the unthinkable happen in the U.S. too?

Previous UN climate conferences have started with great optimism and hope but ended with underwhelming success at best, disappointment at worst. However, there are many reasons to hope that, finally, this one will be different.

A delegation from the Council of Canadians led by the organization's National Chairperson, Maude Barlow will also be going to Europe. This week, the Council of Canadians is launching an eight-country, two-month European tour to explain to European leaders the pitfalls of CETA.
State surveillance programs spell serious consequences for business -- could Canada be next? A few weeks ago the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) rendered a judgment that invalidated the Safe Harbour Decision that heretofore had allowed U.S. companies to transfer and store personal data of EU citizens in the U.S. as long as they voluntarily agreed to respect certain principles.

In a Canada in which our current government has expressed undying loyalty to Netanyahu's regime, and where the opposition parties appear unwilling to publicly shame the government for its appalling disregard for the human rights of Palestinians, we cannot realistically expect the enactment of state sanctions against Israel any time soon. If the NDP wants to prove to Canadians that it is indeed the government in waiting, and that it's visibly different from the Conservatives, then we should all expect it to commit to taking action on this issue. Will the NDP, at the very least, commit to reforming CIFTA to exclude tariff-free imports of illegal Israeli settlement products

Imagine Asia with both Japan and China in shambles. Or the Americas in which both the United States of America and Brazil are limping. Or Europe in which both Germany and France are in doldrums. The result would be political, intellectual, and economic vacuum. And that is the situation in Africa.

When drugs and prostitution are counted in calculating GDP, one could ask why the items in the basket are not increased. Forced labor, human trafficking and illegal organ trade are also elements of the black market. If drugs and prostitution are counted in calculating GDP, should a country also count forced labor and human trafficking in calculating GDP?
Most of the laws in force in Germany today originated in Brussels. If an unpopular topic is rejected in the domestic arena, politicians frequently try to push it through via the EU. This often infringes the principle of subsidiarity, which stipulates that the EU should only handle what member states cannot handle themselves.
Canada will see timely benefits as global trade picks up. Prospects for the domestic economy are not strong, but exports are already rising nicely. Domestic weakening should help to free up capacity for exports, which is running pretty tight in some industries. In others, there is capacity to absorb growth.
Clearly it is a worry that five years beyond the crisis, price growth is as tame as it is. Worse yet, in many cases, recent monthly inflation is getting thinner.
When the history of the early decades of the 21st Century is written, it may well be called the era of multiple clashing hegemons. The most recent global crisis triggered by President Putin's decision...
