The strongly worded resolution notes that CETA would “diminish the capacity of local government to hire or buy locally so as to use public spending as a tool for local economic develpoment.”

Here in Vancouver, CETA would significantly stall the city’s green procurement, clean water, and other plans in the Greenest City Action Plan. The issue has not yet been discussed at Vancouver City Council.

Worryingly, the contents of the agreement are still kept secret from local governments and Canadians.
