In one week Prime Minister Harper will commit Canada to the Canada-China Foreign Investment Protection Agreement (FIPA).
This agreement will enable China's massive companies to spend billions buying out our natural resource companies. The agreement will also give foreign corporations the power to sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial and municipal, if those governments do anything that limits the companies' profits in Canada. This would include implementing environmental protections, investing in Canadian jobs or stopping the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and projects like it.
This agreement is binding for 31 years making it possible for China to challenge our laws that create jobs, protect our environment and build healthy communities.
This can happen without a single debate or vote.
This treaty was signed by Harper on Sept. 9 and will be binding in one week.
Please contact your MP and voice your opposition and concerns with this agreement.
