Greens hold international press conference in Nanaimo
Green Leader Elizabeth May outlined her party’s opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership during a stop in Nanaimo Tuesday, and gave that opposition an international flavour.
May was joined through video link by the co-leader of the New Zealand Greens.
May says so-called investor-state provisions in the TPP could take away Canada’s ability to enact laws to protect health or the environment, by giving foreign corporations the right to seek damages.
May also says Canadians need to ask tough questions about why the TPP was negotiated in secret
