Media Release: CETA not a done deal after EU Parliament vote

Elizabeth May notes that the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) could face years of ratification votes in member countries before it takes full effect.

“Pending a decision from the European Court of Justice, CETA’s most controversial aspects, such as the investor court system, will require ratification by all 38 national and regional parliaments in the European Union,” said Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada (MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands). “This could take years. There will likely be a referendum in the Netherlands, and several regions in Belgium are recognizing the threat of CETA to their dairy industry. Prime Minister Trudeau should not be so quick to trumpet CETA’s success while many serious hurdles remain.”
