Niki Ashton is calling out trade deals that she says are killing Canadian jobs.


The local MP said in a recent release that the country has seen a quote hollowing out of our economy and that the country is seeing more and more jobs shipped overseas.


She said that a growing number of Canadian voices, including those from industry and the labour movement, are speaking out about how far the deal will set the country back.


Ashton said that the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement will kill up to 60,000 jobs, and hurt the dairy industry in the country.


The MP said that it was negotiated by the previous Conservative government and moved ahead by the currently Liberals.


She said that we will see well-paying jobs exported to low wage economies where workers have less protection from exploitation, and that the NDP is leading the charge against the partnership.
