Report of the Standing Committee on International Trade_June 2008_Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement

The NDP rejects the Canada-Colombia free trade deal until an independent human rights impact assessment is carried out and the resulting concerns addressed. And this position is consistent with the June 2008 Report of the Standing Committee on International Trade in the previous Parliament (report attached). (The report was adopted by the Trade Committee on June 18, 2008; and was presented to the House of Commons on June 19, 2008)
