The local Council of Canadians group is working to get the word out about the Trans Pacific Partnership with a community meeting on Jan. 24.

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is asking Canadians for their opinion on the Trans Pacific Partnership deal,” explained the Council of Canadians’ Donna Cameron.

So that locals can contribute an informed opinion to the debate, the group has planned the meeting, which will feature documentary film producer Paul Manly as speaker.

He will address some aspects of the TPP and his upcoming documentary, along with how the TPP will affect Canada. A discussion will follow.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. at the Duncan United Church.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.
