This issue of the Monitor explains why public concerns about the TPP are fully justified. Experts in a number of areas unpack the many ways this “21st century agreement” would undermine global food security and the climate, weaken government regulations, increase the cost of medicines in Canada and across the TPP region, and further empower corporations to challenge public policies simply for harming profits. We hope it can be a useful guide for anyone considering submitting a response to the government’s ongoing TPP consultation.
