The House resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Trudeau (Prime Minister), seconded by Ms. Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons), — That Bill C-100, An Act to implement the Agreement between Canada, the United States of America and the United Mexican States, be now read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on International Trade;
And of the amendment of Ms. Hardcastle (Windsor—Tecumseh), seconded by Mr. Masse (Windsor West), — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:
“the House decline to give second reading to Bill C-100, An Act to implement the Agreement between Canada, the United States of America and the United Mexican States, because it:
(a) fails to improve labour provisions that are necessary to protect good jobs;
(b) allows for an extension of drug patents that will significantly increase the cost of medicine for Canadians;
(c) leaves the environment vulnerable due to the absence of clear, enforceable protection provisions;
(d) is being rushed through the legislative process, without adequate time and attention for such a crucial trade agreement;
(e) will shift the levers of power within the economy away from governments and workers, in favour of corporations, by weakening public regulations on public health and the environment; and
(f) puts the poorest and most marginalized Canadians at further risk by failing to ensure the protection of human rights, gender equality and inclusive economic growth.”.
The debate continued.
