I think we all “get it”:
- Infrastructure spending ($188 billion, the Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB), privatization of public assets)
- The trade deals, most imminent the NAFTA re-negotiation
are part of the same parcel.
(REF: 2016-07-08 Democracy overtaken by Corporatocracy = coup d’état. Citizens fight to regain democracy = Revolution (insurgency). Corporatocracy fights to hold on = counter insurgency.
Joyce (Beyond Banksters) talks about clauses in the trade deals that are for the benefit of the Bankster Fraudsters.
I was looking at the “import of clauses” from one trade deal to another. They keep ratcheting up, whatever they can get.
So, what can be expected to come into the NAFTA re-negotiation from the TPP negotiations?
about the TPP and current status – – see 2017-06-26 RE: NAFTA re-negotiation. Where does the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) stand? (Trump took the U.S. out of the TPP. It was declared dead. But as of May 21, 2017, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is working on Canada and other participating countries – – they will have a TPP without the U.S. The TPP was initiated under the Conservatives, PM Harper.)
Andre Downs is the Director General of Global Affairs Canada. He is listed on the “pro-TPP” side of the debate on the TPP.
The public submissions re NAFTA re-negotiation are to be submitted to Global Affairs Canada.
I will be appreciative of any further research on Downs and “his team” (below) – – a start.
I find his views, as expressed in the youtube, disconcerting – – quite shocking. What is his background?
