On May 2 and 3, high level negotiators from 11 countries met in Toronto behind closed doors at an undisclosed location in an attempt to revive the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The renewed talks sparked protest from the Trade Justice Network and other civil society organizations, calling these secret negotiations absurd and undemocratic.
Trade Justice Network (TJN) Co-Chair Larry Brown was interviewed on Vancouver Co-op Radio’s Redeye to discuss the problems with the TPP and the renewed negotiations. He shares the TJN’s perspective on trade agreements like the TPP, CETA and NAFTA and an alternative vision for more progressive and fair trade deals.
