2012 CETA and Equal Money System

The Canadian government and the European Union have been planning a trade agreement since 2009 to allow each other’s enterprises into the other’s borders to be able to make a profit with whatever the choose to make a profit with. This agreement is significant because European corporations can now exploit Canadian resources for financial gain and Canadian corporations can exploit European Resources for financial gain. What is important in the agreement is that Canada has chosen to allow our water up for exploitation which will thus privatize our drinking water and waste water.

There has been a big dispute over this point, and I am not sure why. We now pay for our water…we buy bottles like fools, our water consumption is included in our utilities bill, it is privatized but not by a `private company` but by the corporation that is a city = it says on the border of our city here - `The Corporation Of the City of Cambridge`, thus it is not a city it is a money making opportunity off of the residents that live within the border and thus our water is privatized through/as our city that is a corporation.

From reading a few articles from the Canadian perspective, we fear letting go of our water and fear European companies coming into Canada and exploiting the resource, making our water supplies privatized, having our money that we pay for our water currently move into a private company than a government. To me this is the same thing as the government does what it wants with our money such as war, cutting education, cutting health benefits, raising CPP, etc , so then what this does is take money away from our municipal and provincial government and put that money into a private company, when looking at it is not cool because that company obviously does not have the infrastructure nor the living standards of the population in mind when making the decisions of what to do with their money.

Another thing in this agreement is the point of government procurement. From reading about it, government procurement is like a kickback where the government gets extra money for the private companies venturing into the borders and `enterprising`. What the EU is wanting within the agreement is a restriction on what the government can do with the procurement, meaning that the federal government is not able to allocate the procurement towards any sub-governments thus it cannot allocate money towards provincial or municipal government to increase infrastructure or better the community.

Obviously this is not what is best for all in this case as people are going to be exploited in this deal and things are not going to work out for the best for each participant within/as the CETA agreement.

In an EqualMoney System this will not need to take place as the ownership of resources of the Earth will not belong to one government or one being, as the Earth provides it unconditionally to all that are here on this earth no matter how much money one has in their pockets. The only being that limits resources to another is humans and because of profit, and in an Equal money system we will not need to make deals to exploit other land resources in order to make a dollar because the point of making a dollar is because of the point of survival based on needing to make that dollar and when that needing to make a dollar is removed and the dollar is given unconditionally in support of life as who you are here on Earth we will not need to venture out and find new ways to exploit resources in order to make a dollar, we will be able to work with what is here, because the dollar is already in our pockets, investigating the best method to provide every one water, investigating the best method of shelter, investigating the best method of clothing instead of the Exploitation that exists now in order to make a dollar. Thus In an equal money system we will not need to exploit eachother to make another dollar because we will have an everlasting dollar from birth to death constantly supporting our existence on Earth unconditionally.
