Motion text

That this House congratulates the regional Wallonian Parliament on its decision to block the implementation of the CETA trade deal between the EU and Canada; considers that this was a brave and principled move, standing up for democracy against the corporate world and its collaborators in the EU; notes that CETA would incorporate the worst elements of the controversial and unpopular Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, including powers to enable companies to prosecute democratic governments in secret courts; and urges all democrats to oppose all attempts to impose such deals in future.
