Canadians need to be informed about Canada/China treaty

Reader wants to inform Canadians of the Canada China Investment Treaty that Prime Minister Stephen Harper is attempting to keep secret

To the editor:

I write to inform fellow Canadians of the Canada China Investment Treaty that (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper is attempting to keep secret before signing it in two weeks.

The treaty would be the beginning of a sellout to China of our natural resources, sovereignty and crumble our democracy in secrecy.

This is a frightening idea to me and I urge people to get informed by reading Green Party MP Elizabeth May’s (environmental lawyer) opinion at www.greenparty.ca/stop-the-sellout, and find petition to Chairman (I mean) Prime Minister Harper asking for parliamentary debate at www.leadnow.ca and read the treaty agreement online.

I think this treaty cannot be good for a huge majority of Canadians and we must stand up against this potential sell out to China.
