Quotes

"We hope this public shaming will put pressure on the federal government," Barlow said. "no country wants to be known as the country that is in violation of these basic human rights."
"we call it corporate rule. what these investor-state deals do is they give corporations the right to challenge domestic law, and we feel that is profoundly undemocratic" Barlow said
"this is a victory for democracy.  we are pleased that the german government has listened to critics of the investor-state dispute settlement provisions of the deal that give foreign corporations the right to dictate domestic policy" said Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians
