CETA sparks Day of Action across Canada

442 rally

The Council of Canadians rallied with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada, the International Transport Workers Federation Secretariat and the Seafarers International Union against the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) yesterday as part of the Canadian Maritime and Supply Chain Coalition's nation-wide Day of Action. CBC reports, "Over 200 maritime workers gathered in Vancouver, Victoria and Prince Rupert Thursday to protest what they view as 'an attack on jobs' from the federal Liberal government."  Rallies also took place in St. John's, Montreal and in Toronto where Council of Canadians organizer Mark Calzavara spoke to those gathered outside Foreign Affairs minister Chrystia Freeland's office.
