Are you are among the many Canadians who have numerous concerns about FIPA (the Foreign Investment Protection and Promotion Agreement) with China, wondering exactly who it is protecting and promoting?
The prospect of being sued by the Chinese because of losses in a business they invested in, or regulations they perceive as against their interests doesn’t sound like protecting Canada’s interests.
Whatever your concerns are you need to communicate with your MP by letter or in person, to PM Steven Harper by letter or online petition (Leadnow.ca) to not ratify the agreement with China until there is a full and transparent parliamentary review and debate at the least.
Hopefully a reconsideration of the whole issue of exporting our raw resources will become part of the discussion.
Online petitions have already pushed the PM to delay ratifying the agreement, use the tools available to you, have your democratic voice heard.
