It’s not over yet. I don’t want to jump the gun. There will be more attempts to pull it off today.
The most helpful thing for now is to encourage people to tweet to the Canadians. Message from the Council for Canadians:
“We need your help in the next 24 hours to stop the TPP. Because from what we hear, its not quite over yet.
The Japanese PM Abe is now trying to pressure Canada to finalise the agreement whilst they are in Vietnam. Can you please help us in tweeting PM Trudeau, Canadian Trade Minister and the Canadian Foreign Minister.
It will help to highlight Canada both in applauding them but also in ensuring that they maintain their current positions and to not bend under pressure from the other TPP countries.
Canada refused to sign on at the last minute due to concerns around labour rights, Indigenous rights, cultural issues and gender equality.
Asking them to maintain their position on the #TPP and put culture, indigenous rights, women’s rights, and labour rights ahead of corporate interests.
