Hunger games at the casino - the return of food speculation


09 February 2016

A controversial, far reaching trade agreement that critics call a ‘turbo-charged privatisation pact’ is set to be debated in the European Parliament in Strasbourg next week. Warning that the deal will be a ‘nail in the coffin’ of public services around the world, campaigners have called on MEPs to reject the agreement.

A Canadian newspaper has reported that the EU ambassador to Canada has said in an interview that the free trade deal between the EU and Canada (CETA) will be presented to the EU parliament for ratification in mid 2016, with a view to the deal becoming law in early 2017. The process as laid out by the EU ambassador means that there would be no parliamentary scrutiny of individual member states parliaments before the deal comes into effect.

A Canadian broadcaster this morning reported that the “EU quietly asks Canada to rework trade deal's thorny investment clause.”  The report speculates that the free trade deal "risks a humiliating defeat on a ratification vote expected at the EU's parliament in Brussels this fall, unless a compromise can be reached to appease moderate opponents." The free trade deal between Canada and the EU (CETA)  was agreed on by both parties in September 2014, but was awaiting ratification.
