October 5th, 2016 - 11:33am
Jada Malott, a 12-year-old activist from Windsor, visited Parliament Hill today to share her message that the TPP is a bad deal for Canada. Tracey Ramsey, MP for Essex and NDP critic for International Trade, arranged for Jada to meet directly with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“After having her letters repeatedly ignored, today, 12-year old Jada Malott has travelled from Windsor to bring her message right to the Prime Minister,” said Ramsey during Question Period today. “Why does the Prime Minister refuse to listen to Canadians like Jada who do not want to pay for this bad deal?”
After Question Period, the Prime Minister agreed to a brief meeting with young Jada, who presented him with a Windsor Wildcats jersey and delivered hundreds of letters urging him to reject the TPP.
“I’m thrilled to have helped Jada have her voice heard and deliver her hundreds of letters on the TPP directly to the Prime Minister,” added Ramsey. Ramsey also delivered a statement in the House today, highlighting October 11 as International Day of the Girl and recognizing the contributions of young activists like Jada.
