Extract from “Seven Ways TPP Favours Mega-rich Foreign Investors, Not Canadians”

1. The TPP would give special protections to foreign investors at significant public cost, without compelling evidence of a public benefit.
2. When the TPP refers to “foreign investors,” we should understand that to mean large multinationals and the super-wealthy.
3. The TPP is worse than existing agreements such as NAFTA.
4. Anything new and apparently better in the TPP, compared to NAFTA, is very likely lost because the TPP adds to, instead of replacing, existing trade agreements.
5. The TPP would make it easier for global banks to resist regulation.
6. The TPP is incompatible with the rule of law.
7. The TPP is disrespectful of domestic institutions, including the courts.
