Speaking out on the TPPA

Kevin Toomey OP shares his personal submission on the TPPA with us.  In the introduction he makes three points about the TPPA:

  1. That our government should not pass this Agreement into law, as it deleterious effects outweigh its perceived benefits.
  2. That the Agreement takes away New Zealand citizens’ sovereign rights, and should be rejected on that basis alone, as anti-democratic as well as lacking judicial independence.
  3. That from an environmental perspective, the whole Agreement is not in the public interest, and should be rejected.
