    All is well thought, but money makes the world go round - money of a minority. And they make the rules.

    J’ai apprécié fortement la qualité scientifique de votre brève note. Est-il possible d’avoir les Email de Adriana Homolova, Eva Schram et Frank Mulder ??
    I am Professor of International Investment Law and Trade at the Faculty of Law and Economics in university of Marrakech in Morocco.
    Let me mention that I am an expert (in French language) of UNCTAD in the field of International Investment Agreements (IIA) since 2003. Moreover I was an expert, between 2003 and 2007, of the « WTO’s Institute on Technical Assistance » in area of Trade and Investment (in French), for the region of African French Speaking Countries.
    Je dois vous indiquer que j’avais participé à une Conférence organisée conjointement par l’African Association of International Law and New York Forum Africa, au début septembre 2015 au Gabon. Le thème était International Law and Economic Development in Africa. Aussi, j’avais participé (1 et 2 décembre à Djibouti) à une conférence intitulée « The Rule of Law and Investment. Investigating Motors for Development».

    The issue comes from their site. They seem to have removed the content.

    Do you have a better option for FICs to replace PACERplus?

    Does this NAFTA judicial panel allow reporters in to these hearings? How could someone like me (from far away from Toronto) get info on the final ruling? Is there a contact person please?

    The link to IFPRI’s discussion paper does not work. Can you provide the correct link?

    @Garrett Workman, we also filed a freedom of information request at the USTR. This is where we obtained the information mentioned in the article. Before release these documents were redacted by the FOIA team to prevent making any information public where (quote) "disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy."

    I’m not sure how an EU Freedom of Information Act request gave you access to my private communications with USTR, but I feel this is a violation of my "fundamental right" to data privacy.

    Uno de los artículos sobre el TTIP más completos y claros que he leído en los últimos meses.

    Quizá le añadiría algún ejemplo real más de las consecuencias que tienen los tratados ya firmados, para que se viera que la oposición a estos tratados no se basan en artificios o ideológicos, sino en realidades contundentes y demostrables.

    I think this is a very important milestone in EU position vis a vis settlement products, but we have to have a very realistic reading of the EU decision and manage our expectations from the Commission. The decision is neither calling for a boycott nor sanctions, and does not seem to go into that direction. Rather, it is a sort of an awareness tool for the European consumer and leaves the implementation of any measures to the discretion of the country level decision maker. It has no legally binding mechanism!

    It will take a strong effort to make the shift in position at the decision making level in the commission from one side, and also work on better standards for Palestinian export oriented products from the other. The EU market is highly competitive and there is a need to revise the current list of Palestinian products to enter into EU within the current trade arrangments. We also need to see how we can compete with the listed "Israeli settlement labeled products provided by the EU decision". For example, are they the same as the Palestinian list or not), this is in addition to making a comparative assessment of competiteveness of Palestinian products with imports from other European and non-European countries that have trade agreements with the EU.

    The NAFTA trade deal has been a disaster for the so called middle class and indeed most workers In the USA as well as Canada.
    The TPP will only cap that off It is a myth that trade deals "create " jobs totally untrue Trade deals actually destroy good family supporting jobs AND of course the taxes those people pay.. Rather strange "destroy tax paying jobs then giving to corporations who are good at avoiding taxes "
    There is little value in Trade deals for the vast majority of people which is of course MOST of us. The TPP will only add to that disaster

    How can the limitation and restriction (trade agreements) and catalogisation (licensing, patenting ...) of common ressources (public, nature, intellectual goods etc.),
    for the advantage of a few industrial leaders, owned by the private establishment prevent the already ongoing wealth (e.g. economy) and technology (e.g. automotive) drift from europe to asia?

    Fire can not be extinguished with fire, as well as it is hardly possible to limit and restrict ressources for the many to protect private prosperty.

    Thank you for clearly describing these difficult negotiations.

    I feel betrayed in the confidence I had in Murray Rankin. He must answer this accusation to put his supporters at ease.

    I would like to know the NDP position on "trade agreements" such as CETA and TPP. Many of us understand that these agreements are a sell-out of our sovereignity. The fact that the trade agreement seems to carry more weight than the national laws is frightening. What will this mean for our First Nations people when they protest invasions of their territory; or for local markets when they want to give preference to local produce, or to CBC that is not making a profit....will it be privatized? How many jobs will we lose to foreign companies who want to cut costs and not deal with our local labour laws and environmental protection? There are so many questions to be asked but perhaps the most important is whether a new Canadian government will be able to back out of these agreements - and thereby save the country we know as Canada.

    I would appreciate an answer from Murray Rankin’s office. Thank you. Yours sincerely, Sheila Turnbull Reid

    The proposed Court System, like the TTIP itself, is a gross affront to democracy in Europe.

    We should all oppose these unjust anti-democratic proposals with all the peaceful power at our command.

    The Russian supreme court recently addressed the subject of corporations, ignoring their country’s soverntry and laws.The court concluded that it was hog wash and that corporation have to abide by the laws of the land.. This, I would say, would be the outcome also if challenged in the Canadian supreme court also, if for no other reason than it’s PIGHEADED FASCISM.
