CUPE video exposes CETA dangers

CUPE has produced a video about the impact of the Canada — European Union trade deal that is currently being negotiated. The Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) is to be signed by January 2012. CETA could put vital public services up for sale on the global market including provincial utilities like Manitoba Hydro, postal services, and access to government purchasing at every level. It’s the first time a trade agreement will include municipal activities like purchasing, infrastructure projects and the delivery of municipal services. The video sheds light on this trade deal that threatens public services, gives extensive power to corporations, and limits local democratic control for municipal governments.
