CUPE and the Council of Canadians are hosting a public event on April 29 in Calgary to shine a light on the dangers of a new trade deal.
Canada and the European Union are negotiating a new Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) which they hope to sign by the end of this year. But it would be more accurate to call it a privatization and deregulation deal.
Under CETA, large multinational corporations could take over delivery of vital public services – like water and waste disposal – whether local governments like it or not.
Come learn more about the threat CETA poses to Canadian communities and how you can get involved in stopping it.
Who: Paul Moist, National President, Canadian Union of Public Employees; and Maude Barlow, National Chairperson, Council of Canadians.
What: Public meeting about CETA: Canadian Communities are not for sale
When: Friday, April 29, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Ballroom, Westin Calgary, 320 4th Avenue SW, Calgary
Why: Because together we can stop this trade deal and protect communities, health care and the environment.
CUPE and the Council of Canadians are organizing a cross-Canada tour to shine a light on this important issue. Stay tuned for events in your community.
