Easter Demands Update on CETA Talks

Posted on February 29, 2012

(Washington, DC) – Liberal International Trade Critic, Wayne Easter, has submitted a motion to the Chair of the International Trade Committee requesting that Minister Ed Fast appear before the Committee as soon as possible to explain the status of the Canada-European Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

“The Conservative government,” said Easter, “has provided very few details on the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement and we recently learned there may be delays. This is the largest trade agreement since NAFTA and Canadians deserve to know where we are at in these discussions.”

A Canadian Press article of February 28th indicated the CETA agreement may be delayed.

“I have asked the Minister of International Trade, Ed Fast, to appear before the Parliamentary International Trade Committee to brief the Members on the status of CETA. Canadians want to know what issues have yet to be resolved; is the EU demanding more concessions on pharmaceuticals, on supply management, or on procurement? I am also concerned about what the Conservative government is willing to sacrifice in order to be able to say they have a deal,” said Easter.

“Put simply, the Minister has a duty to come before the International Trade Committee and explain himself and the actions of his government,” Easter concluded.
