Open Invitation to the public to discuss the No To CETA campaign

Over the summer a few of us from the Occupy Movement decided to start up a No To CETA campaign.  We prepared a video, gave ourselves a name  (Citizens Against CETA), set up a blog page and formed a partnership with the Council of Canadians.  Read more in this article published by The Independent. 

On October 3rd, at 7:30 in the Oak room at the Lantern, we, along with the local chapter of the Council of Canadians, are holding a meeting for their members and any concerned citizens wishing to get involved or learn more.  The purpose is to look at strategies to get the message out, both to the public and the politicians.

Watch the informational video HERE.

Read more about the problematic implication of Investors Rights (and the precedents that have been set under NAFTA) for CETA.

The federal government is hoping to have the deal signed by the end of the year so there is a real sense of urgency. We hope to see you at the meeting. Your expertise and ideas are needed.

Public Forum on Muskrat Falls -- January 17th, 7:30 pm, Bruneau Centre, Memorial University

Professor Wade Locke will give a talk titled, "Is Muskrat Falls the Best Option?", to be followed by questions and discussion. The event took place on Tuesday, January 17th, 7:30 pm at the Bruneau Centre on Memorial University campus (download his powerpoint presentation here).

Dr. Locke's presentation comes on the heals of a paper by another Memorial University economist, Dr. James Feehan, released January 11. This paper (available in PDF) questions the necessity of proceeding with the mega-project in favor of other alternatives, which have been left largely unexplored.
