We, the undersigned citizens of Canada, recognize that the agreement known as CETA between Canada and the European Commission will impact all aspects of our lives. This proposed agreement will jeopardize the ability of governments and their instruments (schools, hospitals, universities, and public utilities or agencies) at all levels to procure goods and services that favour in any way local and domestic businesses thereby, for example, destroying arrangements that specifically source local food. The European position in this agreement is also calling for extended patents and the inclusion of severe enforcement procedures of intellectual property rights. This would include the judicial precautionary seizure of movable and immovable property, and the freezing of bank accounts of an ALLEGED infringer and any third party deemed to have assisted in the ALLEGED infringement. Farmers could see their homes, land, equipment, crops seized and bank accounts frozen for being accused of using seed (including their own that may have been inadvertently contaminated) that has a gene patent or any other form of intellectual property attached to it.
