Sept. 12, 2014: Despite a significant public outcry against the CCFIPA, the Harper government signed the treaty today, ratifying it and making it law. It is due to come into force October 1, 2014. Our only hope now is to back the Hupacasath First Nation in their appeal of their initial court challenge.

What an Expert Says:
Gus Van Harten is a 41-year-old Osgoode law professor who not only teaches investment law but is also the author of Investment Treaty Arbitration and Public Law (Oxford University Press, 2007). Unlike most experts in the field of investment trade deals, Harten makes no income from the lucrative legal work of international trade arbitration. Investment trade lawyers typically make between $1,000 to $2,000 an hour.
Even Right Wing Conservatives Don’t Agree With This Deal:
Diane Francis: - Canada-China trade deal is too one-sided
