TPP, Food Sovereignty and our Health - Cross Canada Tour 2016

– Why Should You Be Concerned?

According to Government of Canada websites, we are told that:
• Protecting the health and safety of Canadians is of the utmost priority for the Government of Canada. The TPP protects Canada’s right to maintain and implement measures to ensure food safety for consumers as well as to protect animal or plant life or health. Food product imports will only be accepted if they meet Canada’s rigorous health and safety requirements, which have been fully protected.
• TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Agreement will not impair the ability of Canada or its partners to regulate or legislate in areas such as the environment, culture, safety, health and conservation.
• • Nothing in any of Canada’s Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) exempts foreign investors from having to comply with Canadian laws or regulations.
• • Promoting trade and investment has never jeopardized our main economic and social values, nor will it in the future.

However, experience shows that these statements by the Government are untrue. For instance, rBGH-induced milk, which is forbidden to be imported into Canada will be allowed back into this country under the proposed TPP.

Hence, we must tell our Government that TPP is not good for Canada and why it should be rejected. We must hold our government accountable for the safety and sovereignty of our food supply.
