Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), a controversial trade deal between Canada and the European Union (E.U.), threatens food safety and other consumer standards, according to a new report by a coalition of advocacy groups.

Is CETA Harper's parting gift to Oh Canada? Money is master and the people shall pay one way or another.

Kind of like how the TPP is Obama's parting gift to the U.S. I wonder if Trudeau approves CETA. He certainly approves of the TPP.

Welcome the new boss, the same as the old boss.

The victory garden! Really. We are not baby birds waiting for food from our mother. We are capable of COOPERATIVE group work and producing our own food if we choose to take our power back. WE is bigger in number than THEY. Depend on us not them.

All of these organizations -- actually UNITED elites/capitalists -- can move this
stuff right over our heads -- and our government/Congress isn't in the way at all,
of course.

Elites are UNITED in every way possible -- up, down, midways, whatever.
And it is by their organizations that they do their dirty work.

If you watch the corporate media you will hear, "It's globalization, it's here, there's nothing you can do about it."

Well, bullshit, globalization is only inevitable because a criminal global elite have conspired to make it so.

The best thing we can do for the climate problem and population problem is to produce and consume locally. Globalization is not inevitable or necessary in any way. It does not serve the interests of the people of Canada, Europe or the United States.

Now one of those paid corporate spokesmen will pop up and say. "But you're advocating protectionism. Protectionism exacerbated the great depression!" And they are merely following a script written by and for a global elite that could care less about you and your future.

To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, It has always been thus for the price of democracy is eternal vigilance. Freedom and Democracy go hand and hand and often this is unrealised until one steps a bit too far and you have to deal with dropping anvils.

Corporations and the 1% know no boundaries.
