Media advisory - News conference: "Next generation" trade treaties jeopardize fisheries regulation
ST. JOHN'S, NL, Jan. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives will release a report called Globalization, Trade Treaties and the Future of the Atlantic Canadian Fisheries at a press conference in St. John's, NL, Wednesday, January 9, 2013.
Senior Research Fellow Scott Sinclair will present CCPA's research on the broad scope of new trade and investment treaties, such as the Canada- EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), and their threat to fisheries regulation. At stake is the ability of Canadians to pursue public policies that curb domination of the fisheries by large corporations and help spread benefits more widely among independent fishers and coastal communities.
Media are invited.
