EU-CANADA TRADE DEAL: Leaked CETA declaration given short shrift

"Five leaked pages of a draft declaration on the EU-Canada trade deal, CETA, have surfaced ahead of a Council meeting on 18 October when all member states will be asked to adopt the deal. It has done little to placate the concerns of the agreement’s critics....

Guy Taylor, of Global Justice, said that “Now that TTIP is widely acknowledged to be effectively dead, Brussels is doing all it can to salvage CETA. The declaration has no legal basis, is devoid of substance and only goes to show how desperate the Commission is to obtain support for a corporate coup that has been condemned across Europe.”"
