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.
