Hawaii is the site of a meeting held by the trade “experts” who are putting the finishing touches on the harmful TPP deal. Now they are pressuring Canada to alter its supply management, which would affect the Canadian poultry and dairy industries. Canada’s government doesn’t want to mess with their chickens and cows right now– and prefers to deal with them after their elections are over.
Canadian farmers– brace yourselves!
Meanwhile, Malaysia is being removed from worst status in the U.S. State Department Human Trafficking List– in order to prop it up as a partner in this trade deal. It’s enough to make you nauseous. Vietnam, another TPP trade partner, is also being upgraded on the human trafficking list.
The partners of the TPP are Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Human rights groups and many legislators are denouncing these upgrades in the Human Trafficking List– but the crafters and promoters of the TPP appear unfazed.
There’s some excellent cheddar produced in Canada. It looks like soon it will be replaced by Malaysian Cheddar at our local markets.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
