WHAT: The Council of Canadians Charlottetown chapter will be rallying against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) this afternoon. The Council will be available for comment on the controversial corporate rights pact.

WHEN / WHERE: 1:30 pm ADT, Thursday, March 31, outside the Delta Hotel in Charlottetown, PEI.

WHY: The chapter will be protesting a by invitation only “consultation” on the TPP being held inside with David Lametti, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Trade.

“The Council of Canadians is requesting an independent analysis of the TPP by the Parliamentary Budget Office that considers the impact on environmental, human and labour rights,” says Leo Broderick with the Charlottetown chapter of the Council of Canadians. “The government needs to hold full and proper public consultations with First Nations, provinces and municipalities. So far these so-called consultations are just smoke and mirrors.”
