URGENT ACTION — Parliament will be voting today on the Canada-China investment treaty. Tell MPs not to go there! Click the above photo to send a letter to your MP. For the first time in Canadian history, this treaty will allow investors (including Chinese state-owned enterprises such as CNOOC or Sinopec), to claim damages against the Canadian government in secret, for decisions taken at the municipal, provincial, territorial or federal level that result in a reduction of their expectation of profits. This deal will take away control of Canada’s resources from its own citizens for 31 YEARS.
