On June 7th, the three CCIC regional working groups organized a public forum on trade and investment agreements and their impact on human rights and the environment.
Sanya Reid-Smith, legal advisor at Third World Network, Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians and the lawyer Steven Shrybman all participated in the debate. The event, which took place in a room filled to capacity, helped to raise awareness about the negative impact of these agreements and to propose alternatives.
