"It's clear the assumption that the U.S. is a safe country for asylum seekers is no longer accurate. The agreement should be put on hold until the U.S. can guarantee the humane and non-discriminatory treatment of those seeking refuge in the U.S." — Larry Brown, NUPGE President

“The Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership is an affront to democracy and a threat to economic equality. It will create a private court system for foreign investors, giving them the right to sue democratically elected governments. And it will rig the Canadian economy in favour of powerful corporations. It is an outright betrayal of workers. It will do nothing to stop climate change, and it will certainly exacerbate income and wealth inequality.” ­— Larry Brown, NUPGE President

“Canada’s blood supply is threatened by pay-for-plasma private clinics. Canadians must not repeat the mistakes of the tainted blood scandal. We must not allow profit to compromise safety.
