    Just next week, 600 corporate lobbyists are due to land Canada for what might be the last negotiations before the secretive Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal is finalized.

    We were planning to be there in Vancouver and welcome them with a massive protest, to call attention to this dangerous corporate power grab. We were even working to get real, non-corporate representatives officially inside these crucial talks.

    But we’ve just heard that TPP organizers are moving the secret talks to Ottawa -- a five hour flight away -- right at the last minute. They’re terrified of a backlash, and terrified people will actually see what happens behind the closed doors.
    They think they can get away with keeping the talks secret, and hiding the world’s biggest trade deal from the public eye. Not if we can help it. We urgently need to raise the funds to get organizers and citizen representatives from Vancouver to Ottawa, and make these talks the big media event the corporations don’t want.
    Can you chip in $1 to help get activists and citizen negotiators to Ottawa for the TPP talks?
    Insiders are saying this could be the last round of talks -- ever -- of one of the worst trade deals the world has ever seen. By November, the TPP could be the law, wreaking havoc on environmental laws, internet freedoms and people’s health. This treaty could prevent future governments from passing laws that protect our kids and put people over profits. And this could be one of our last chances to stop it.
    Governments know that if people knew how bad this deal is, they’d never agree to it. And the signatories are terrified that protests like the ones that happened in Seattle over the World Trade talks in 1999 could happen in Ottawa.
    But these trade talks are worse. The TPP is like NAFTA on steroids and we need to stop it now before it’s too late.
    Can you chip in $1 to make a splash on the TPP? The more we raise, the more people we can send to the talks.
    The TPP talks have been on the rocks for months, but inside sources are saying these will be the last talks in North America and one of the last rounds of talks before the deal is finalized in November.
    Imagine 600 corporate lobbyists gathered in Ottawa’s most expensive hotel sipping cocktails in $4000 suits deciding the fate of our democratically decided laws, knowing that their main opposition is stuck on the other side of the country.
    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is called a trade deal, but it is really a corporate wish-list aimed at attacking everything from environmental protections to affordable medicines to internet freedoms.
    In fact, it is probably the most important international treaty you’ve never heard of. The TPP is being negotiated between the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and other Pacific countries -- making it nearly global in scope.
    There's lots wrong with the TPP, but the unaccountable systems it would set up to allow corporations to sue governments are one of the most frightening. If it is signed, future laws designed to protect consumers, our health, and our environment could be overturned in secret courts by corporations that claim the laws harm their profits -- and there is nothing we or our elected governments could do to stop them.
    We need to do a lot more to make sure we stop this treaty -- and we need your help to do that.
    Please, will you chip in $1 to supercharge our campaign in Ottawa now?
    Thanks for all you do,
    Paul, Jon and the team at SumOfUs

    Trans-Pacific Partnership talks going on in Ottawa

    Trade officials from Canada and other Asia-Pacific nations are meeting behind closed doors in Ottawa to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive free-trade proposal that could create one of the world's largest trading blocks.
    The TPP currently comprises 12 countries, including Canada, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.


    The discussions between trade officials are taking place in Ottawa from July 3 to 12. Federal ministers are not participating in the talks.
    "No ministerial meeting will occur on the margin of the officials' meeting in Ottawa," said Claude Rochon, a spokesman for the department of Foreign Affairs. "This is a working-level technical meeting, held by the TPP negotiating leads and a small number of focused working groups, that meet as required to continue to advance negotiations."

    Canada first joined discussions surrounding the mammoth trade proposal in October 2012.
    Secrecy 'unacceptable'

    The federal government says TPP countries represent 792 million people and a combined GDP of $28.1 trillion dollars.
    One of the major complaints from opposition parties is the secrecy surrounding the talks.
    NDP trade critic Don Davies said the process has been "unacceptable" and Canada should "aspire to higher standards" when dealing with "profoundly important" discussions.
    In an interview with CBC News, Davies said the government could provide periodic updates to lift the veil on the closed-door discussions.
    Liberal John McCallum agrees. He said his party is keen on expanding Canada's trade relationships, but more information should be provided.
    "For starters, they could tell us who is negotiating for us," McCallum said.
    The Council of Canadians, which calls itself a social-action organization, has suggested the process "marks a new low point in transparency for an already secretive trade deal."
    "The Canadian government claims that 'interested stakeholders have an opportunity to provide their views related to Canada's interests in the TPP,' but it won't release even the most basic information to allow for stakeholder access to negotiators as has happened at previous rounds," said Scott Harris, a trade campaigner for the group.
    There has also been concern from groups, including the Dairy Farmers of Canada, about how the trade deal could increase access to the Canadian dairy market.

    Michigan Republican Senate Candidate Opposes TPP

    Breaks with many in party in opposing free trade agreement

    Michigan Republican Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land has broken with many Republicans, voicing skepticism about a free trade agreement between the United States and a coalition of Asian countries.
    Land said she is “discouraged by the direction of the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations,” fearing that the trade agreement could hurt American exports and manufacturing. The biggest cause for concern in Michigan is the 2013 entrance of Japan into the negotiations. Japan has come under fire from American carmakers for its restrictive auto market.
    “I am concerned that the Trans-Pacific trade agreement would let exported products from some countries, like Japan, enter the U.S. market easily, but our domestic goods and products would face obstacles entering their markets,” she wrote in a Detroit News op-ed published Tuesday. “If the Trans-Pacific trade agreement does not ensure reciprocity in market access, it should be postponed.”
    Land’s position on the trade deal, which involves nine Asian countries, as well as the United States, Canada, and Mexico, echoes the concerns expressed by labor groups, including the United Auto Workers. The UAW endorsed her Democratic opponent, U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, in February and has campaigned aggressively for him over the summer.
    Land is attempting to drive a wedge between Peters and union members in Michigan by attacking the Democrat for his record on outsourcing.
    Peters outsourced a $200,000 contract to a Chinese company during his tenure as state lottery commissioner and has invested heavily in companies that have profited from shipping jobs overseas. The three-term congressman, who is running on an environmentalist platform, also backed the 2009 Stimulus package that awarded millions to foreign-made luxury automaker Fisker.
    “Terri Lynn Land knows our money should never be used to put us out of work. That’s why Terri will work for policies that create jobs here, not overseas,” one of Land’s latest campaign ads says.
    Land spokeswoman Heather Swift said the Republican’s position on free trade agreements is consistent with her record of “putting Michigan first.”
    “Gary Peters is running from his record of outsourcing a state contract to China, supporting a company that outsourced to Mexico, and sending billions of our tax dollars to companies overseas while Michigan unemployment was at 15 percent,” Swift said. “Michigan workers cannot trust Gary Peters to work for them.”
    Land said that trade agreements can play a large role in helping the U.S. economy if they are used to ensure that foreign countries cannot manipulate their currency to price U.S. goods out of the market. She endorsed the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the United States and the European Union for giving “our farmers and businesses new and improved access for exports.”
    “Trade deals need to create a level playing field to benefit Michigan instead of Government trying to pick winners and losers, and thereby allowing foreign corporations to gain unfair advantages,” Swift said.
    Peters and Land are heading into a competitive general election after winning their party primaries on Tuesday without any major challengers.
    They are running to replace outgoing Sen. Carl Levin, who won his 2008 re-election by 30 points. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Super PAC has dumped millions of dollars into the race, which could play a key role in determining Senate control, despite the state’s reputation as a Democratic stronghold. The polls have tightened in recent weeks with Land trailing Peters by about 5 points, according to Real Clear Politics.
