Tracey urges the government to protect our water

MP Tracey Ramsey (Essex, NDP):

Mr. Speaker, tomorrow, the third round of NAFTA negotiations starts in Ottawa.

Just this week, an EKOS poll found that 76% of Canadians said that we shouldn’t accept a bad deal if negotiations result in worse conditions for Canadians and our environment.

And 80% said NAFTA clauses that leave our water vulnerable to export and privatization should be removed.

We agree – bulk exports of our water mass exports of our water resources do not serve public interest.

Will the Liberals stand up for Canadians, and protect our water?
