CETA-CUPE National

Tell Stephen Harper: Canada’s communities are not for sale

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. This is a big deal for Canadians.

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.  This deal has not yet been signed. There is still time to stop it. Here’s what you can do:

  • Send a message to the federal government using the form below
  • Organize a fight back committee to challenge CETA in your community
  • Call your municipal councillor and tell him/her you want your city or town to take a stand
  • Ask your city council to pass a resolution to keep cities out of CETA
  • Lobby your provincial and federal politicians about the impact of CETA on health care
  • Help spread the word – talk to your colleagues, friends and neighbours
