CETA and the Oil Sands

21 02 2012

In the past, I’ve blogged about the ongoing negotiations for a Canada-EU trade agreement. See here, here, and here.  I’m a pretty enthusiastic supporter of the agreement.  As a citizen of both Canada and the EU, I think that the agreement would be good for both parties.

I am, therefore, a bit concerned to hear that the whole question of Alberta’s tar sands threatens to derail the whole agreement. For more details, see here, here, and here.
