Citizens of Canada and of nations around the world have felt the sting of WTO policies and decisions in fields as diverse and pervasive as labour rights, environmental protection and public health.
So it''s not surprising that whenever politicians and government officials gather to negotiate new trade deals, ordinary citizens gather to protest. Is the WTO really a threat to Canadians? This book offers an informed account of what the WTO is and how it is using its extraordinary powers to supervise and overrule the actions of national governments.
The World Trade Organization: A Citizen''s Guide offers an independent view of WTO actions in areas ranging from agriculture and the environment to labour and culture, tracing how it promotes the interests of global corporations at the expense of citizens.
STEVEN SHRYBMAN is an Ottawa-based lawyer who practices international trade law with the firm Sack Goldblatt Mitchell. The former Executive Director of the West Coast Environmental Law Association, he has written extensively on a variety of legal and environmental subjects.
