As the federal government continues to move forward with the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (“CETA”) our research finds that the benefits are being oversold while the costs and consequences are being minimized and even ignored. CETA could result in between 510 and 2587 net job losses in Nova Scotia. It threatens to restrict the authority and autonomy of democratically-elected governments to enact public policy in support of local economic benefits or even to respond to citizens’ needs.
