Promises aside, us actually backing out would surprise me. Harper has the biggest moose sized hard-on for selling oil, lumber, and potash to China - and if Harper doesn't get re-elected the next will find it difficult to resist getting that same hard-on.

Well you may have linked why he will say no. The tpp cuts out trade with China and Russia.

I just hope you aren't voting for the liberals. Trudeau is a face and nothing else. I'll be voting green as I normally vote liberals.

Is this clickbait? "Canada claims...." The only relevant quote I see is

Canada’s Trade Minister Ed Fast dismisses these challenges from Washington, telling The Globe and Mail last week that “the Americans prefer to negotiate this agreement through the media” and he won’t.

This looks like a media piece that is used for political posturing.

Believe it or not, the ever hated Harper has your financial best interests in mind. Read about his policies as opposed to the massive carnival that is liberal media and you'll find out that although he's boring as all hell he isn't really all that evil, he's just surprisingly good at quietly telling liberals to fuck off.

I don't support a party hands down in any way, but I'd re-vote for Harper in a heartbeat unless the libertarians get a little more of a foothold.

"Ever since Canada formally announced its entry into the TPP, the focus has been on how much our neighbors to the north could hold back from the bargaining table."
At what point has the TPP been formally announced? For a long time it was a complete secret that these negotiations were ongoing. If it weren't for the leaks, the citizens of these democratic nations would know shit all about the TPP. Let me know when Harper stands up and reads any part of this trade deal in Parliament.
And yes, by the way we have an election coming up so the Conservatives will say just about anything to have your vote. Check back after the election and you might have some real information.

If Canada does indeed withdraw from TPP, hopefully the U.S. will follow suit.

Technically it's the US government pushing it, but the vast majority of Americans are against the job-killing "free trade" treaty.

2016 is election year. Even if they don't want it politicians might go against it if enough of the population speaks out against it.

Please oh please let Canada be out. It scares me reading people's reactions on Facebook to the few articles I've actually seen about TPP and Canada possibly being out... I've seen people claiming not being part of the TPP as the reason our economy will collapse. I've tried to spread awareness of just how nefarious it is, only to be ridiculed and asked about my tin foil hat... sigh.
