    Canada, EU reach deal on free trade agreement

    Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced on Friday that Canada and the EU have reached an agreement in principle on a comprehensive free trade agreement. The Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) has been in negotiations since 2009

    The Agreement will provide Canada with preferential market access to the European Union's more than 500 million consumers.

    Canadian workers in every region of the country—including in sectors such as fish and seafood; chemicals and plastics; metal and mineral products; technology; forestry and value-added wood products; automotive; advanced manufacturing; and agriculture and agri-food—stand to benefit significantly from increased access to this lucrative 28 country market which currently generates $17 trillion in annual economic activity.

    In addition, the press release states that CETA will lead to the elimination of "approximately 98 percent of all EU tariffs" between the EU and Canada. The agreement still must undergo legal review and be ratified by the Canadian Parliament, the European Parliament and the EU's 28 member states.

    In March the Canadian government announced that it is withdrawing from a UN convention intended to fight droughts in Africa. Harper claimed the move was necessary as the convention was "too bureaucratic" and that only one fifth of the CAN $350,000 contributed to the convention actually was used for programming. Canada becomes the only UN member state that is not a member of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) . In 2011 Canada was the first nation to withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol on climate change. The decision to drop out of Kyoto was five years after they were subject to a series of lawsuits for their failure to comply with the standards imposed by Kyoto.
