TPP leaks show Canada Post and CBC up for trade

The UPCE National Executive is concerned over an article that was released by the Council of Canadians, this past July 30, 2015.  The subject of the article is privatization. The article seems to openly contradict Canada Post’s previous and multiple statements that there are no plans to privatize Canada Post.

“OTTAWA – According to a document leaked on Wikileaks, the CBC and Canada Post could be jeopardized by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement being negotiated this week in Maui by Canada and 11 other countries. State-owned enterprises in the TPP could be severely restricted and subject to rules that force them to give up their public service mandates in order to become purely profit-driven organizations. They would also be prohibited from buying services exclusively from local or national sources.”
