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?
