Due to the fact that Donald Trump became U.S. president the free trade agreement of TTIP has now been paused. The treaty of CETA is still in progress even though the resistance is growing fast.

Bart Staes is MEP in the European Parliament. He consider that CETA should be rejected because of the the private court system called ICS – Investment Court System. When Steas committee investigated TTIP they rejected it. This because of ISDS/ICS and also because of the fact that the treaty would undermine the EU-member states right on issues like health, food, environment.

Bart Staes says that this also goes for CETA.


British EU-MEP:s are also critical towards CETA. Berry Gardiner – a Labour EU MEP – means that the secrecy regarding TTIP and CETA is unacceptable. Gardiner has read the TTIP-treaty and there was no guarantee against negative effects regarding workers right, environmental protection and agriculture. Gardiner also dislike the private courts in the treaty – ICS – Investment Court System.



Recently the commission of the EU-parliament voted for CETA with the numbers 40 to 24. The 24:th of january 2017 another commission will vote on CETA. The European parliament will vote on CETA in february 2017. If the EU-parliament votes yes to CETA then the individual EU member states will vote on CETA in their parliament.

When the globalist Jean-Claude Juncker signed the CETA-treaty with Canada he said that

– We are setting standards which will determine globalisation in the coming years.



CETA stands for the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement and is a trade agreement between EU and Canada. By boosting trade, CETA will create jobs and growth – and new opportunities for your business. CETA is also progressive. It goes beyond just removing customs duties, by taking people and the environment into account.



Many are calling CETA for the trojan horse since it will give TTIP a backdoor to Europe. The globalists often tries to sneak in under the radar and implement their programs without the citizens knowing what it’s all about. The negotiations regarding CETA and TTIP were as undemocratic as it can get. The negotiations were made in highest secrecy and the MEP:s aren’t allowed to reveal the content to the EU-citizens. Is that democracy?

The reason for the secrecy in the negotiations depends on  the fact that the content of CETA – and other trade agreements is so controversial.

EU MEP Max Andersson has read the CETA-treaty and says that there is no guarantees of protecting things like the environmental issues, consumer protection och the rights of the unions.

 The only sane thing to do is for politicianS to say no to CETA so it can be abolished.

One can also watch the documentary TTIP:might is right. That documentary is about NAFTA – the treaty between USA, Canada and Mexico – which has been disastrous for Canada.
