Commentary: Free Trade with Europe will not destroy 150,000 jobs

Commentary: Free Trade with Europe will not destroy 150,000 jobs

Commentary (November 2010) By Patrick Leblond, University of Ottawa

In a study recently published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, economist Jim Stanford concluded that the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union should cost the Canadian economy a minimum of 28, 043 jobs.

This commentary challenges that view. It emphasises the positive aspect of CETA  by stressing the prospects for R&D cooperation, investment facilitation and harmonized regulations.
