Peter Julian (New Westminster-Burnaby):
Context : Introduction of Private Members' Bills
Bill C-358. Introduction and first reading
Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP) moved for leave to introduce Bill C-358, An Act to provide for fair, democratic and sustainable trade treaties.
He said: Mr. Speaker, I am so pleased to present today the fair, democratic and sustainable trade act, which is a true progressive and environmental approach to international trade.
Comme la Chambre le sait, souvent, dans le passÃ©, des gouvernements ont prÃ©sentÃ© des projets de loi sur le commerce international qui n'Ã©taient ni dÃ©mocratiques ni Ã©quitables.
This legislation would change that, and would bring in a trade framework that meets with the progressive Canadian values of transparency, democracy, and fairness.
Il est maintenant le temps pour le Canada de montrer du leadership et de l'innovation en ce qui concerne les traitÃ©s dÃ©mocratiques et le commerce Ã©quitable.
Now is the time for a fair, democratic, and sustainable approach to trade and fair, democratic, and sustainable trade treaties. I hope all members of Parliament will support this important legislation.
