URGENT FIPA UPDATE: Public Comment Period Still Open for Canada-China Trade Deal
The Common Sense Canadian posted a detailed breakdown of the Environmental Assessment process for the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) between Canada and China earlier this week.
In that piece we noted the fact that the final Environmental Assessment seemed absent in the soon-to-be-ratified FIPA.
Since publishing the story we have learned that indeed the final EA report has not been completed AND there is still time for input from Canadians.
We urge our readers to share their concerns about the process and inform the Government of Canada about the significant environmental impacts of FIPA.
Learn more about the FIPA EA at this government website.
And submit your comments by emailing: EAconsultationsEE@international.gc.ca
We will soon be posting more details about FIPA impacts that people can include their submissions.
