Here’s another conservative who says one thing and does another when it comes to China. (photo: sodahead.com)
Canada’s Prime Minister Harper is about to sign a trade treaty with China that places foreign corporate profits above our own democratic laws and policies. It’s the very state capitalism and xenophobia we despise in China (he must have been talking to his American conservative comrade, Mitt Romney). Harper plans to sign the treaty into law on November 1st with NO public or parliamentary debate.
If you give a damn about the limited amount of democracy that we still have left in our governmental system, then sign this petition to try and protect our natural resources and environment so that they will not be held hostage to Chinese corporate profits. This treaty must not be enacted without proper public debate and discourse.
