The new U.S.-Canadian Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement is likely to have a negative impact on Canadian consumers, a senior Canadian trade lawyer said Tuesday.
In a submission to the Senate Finance Committee, Peter Hultqvist, president of Hultvist & Co., said that he was surprised to see the U.K. Government’s opposition to the deal.
“This is an issue that I have not seen the U-K.
government really express the kind of concern for Canadian consumers,” he said.”
Hultviss also noted that the U, too, has had concerns about the deal since it was announced on Oct. 31.””
This is a very serious problem and it is a problem that I am very concerned about.”
Hultviss also noted that the U, too, has had concerns about the deal since it was announced on Oct. 31.
“The U. S. has expressed concerns about this deal, too.
They have expressed concern over a number of issues that the deal raises and some of the issues are, in fact, issues that have been raised by the European Commission,” he explained.”
I think it is going to be a real issue that is raised by Canadian consumers.
We have had no indication that the Canadian government has been more vocal about it than the U.”
Hausfors, who represents the European Union, is also an attorney at the law firm of Beecham MacDonald.
The new TTIP agreement has been in the works since 2013, and is being negotiated between the U .
S. and 11 other nations.
It is aimed at easing tariffs on agricultural products and has been designed to open up access to markets around the world.
The U .
K. and the European countries that sign up to it are expected to have to accept restrictions on certain imports that will apply to the U and any new trading partners that join.
However, it is expected that most U.s. products that are exported to the EU will not be subject to any tariffs at all, a move that has been opposed by some Canadian farmers.
Critics have said that it will be a boon for multinational corporations and will create an economic and political barrier to Canadian producers.
