Below is a list of some of our concerns. This list is not complete and the more this agreement is dissected by experts, the more likely this list of concerns is to grow. In 2014, Noam Chomsky, a linguist and political activist, warned that the TPP “is designed to advance the neoliberal project of maximizing profit and domination and putting the working population in competition around the world to reduce wages in order to increase insecurity.” [212] Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) argues that trade deals like the TPP “have destroyed the families that end up working and enriched big business.” [213] Professor Robert Reich claims that the TPP is a “Trojan horse in a global race to the bottom.” [214] [215] [216] In a 2018 study on general foreign trade, researchers found that a large majority of adults in the United States see foreign trade as beneficial to the United States. Growth rather than foreign threat. [74] In the international context, Americans are generally among the least likely to support the Trans-Pacific Partnership and there is a clear partisan divide among the American public regarding support for the trade agreement. [75] In the round of negotiations, held in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum in Vietnam in November 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refused to sign the agreement in principle and expressed reservations about the provisions on culture and automobiles. The Australian, New Zealand and Japanese media, which strongly supported a rapid movement for a deal, sharply criticized what they portrayed as Canadian sabotage. [17] The Trudeau Liberal government is “committed to being transparent, open and consultative with Canadians on the TPP.” The Green Party of Canada (GPC) believes that this approach represents an improvement over the Harper Conservative government`s approach, but we believe that there must be much more than consultation. The GPC urges the Trudeau government to hold public hearings that are accessible to all Canadians and that contain expert analysis from neutral parties that can shed light on the impact of this agreement. These hearings should be broadcast in order to reach a wide audience. In a speech on the 2016 presidential campaign, Republican Party candidate Donald Trump promised to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership if elected. .
