What we want: For Stephen Harper to reject CNOOC's takeover.
Current status: The SumOfUs community put this issue front
and center. 37,000 of you signed our petition within 48 hours, and
together with LeadNow we sent tens of thousands of messages to MPs and Prime
Minister Harper. The pressure split the Conservative caucus, and while
Harper green-lighted the Nexen deal, he now knows he can't quietly pursue his
energy agenda without Canadians standing up to hold him accountable.
To date, the Harper government still hasn't passed the secretive and
extreme Canada-China FIPA. Experts thought the investor deal would be
passed quietly on November 2nd, but your pressure has delayed ratification and
given Canadians a fighting chance to stop this terrible agreement.
