Londoners To Protest Harper’s TPP

Londoners will rally against Stephen Harper’s Trans Pacific Partnership in Victoria Park this weekend.

Green Party Candidate in London-West and Lawyer Dimitri Lascaris will lead the protest this Saturday afternoon at 3:30pm.

Lascaris calls the 12 country tentative deal “NAFTA on steroids” and says it will “open Canadian laws, health and safety regulations, and the funding of public services to legal challenges by global corporations in a rigged and secretive private justice system.”

The TPP has come under heavy fire by local farmers, the auto sector and politicians.

Some are worried it will cost thousands of jobs, increase the cost of prescription drugs and cripple the Canadian dairy industry.
