Audio: What's Wrong with the TPP\?
Scott Sinclair, Michael Geist and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Feb 1, 2016, 27 min

But the corporate-driven TPP is about much more than "free trade", and concerns are mounting. We go in-depth with four experts: Scott Sinclair, director of the CCPA's Trade and Investment Research Project; Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-Commerce law at the University of Ottawa; Meghan Sali, digital rights specialist at OpenMedia; and Stuart Trew, editor of the CCPA Monitor.
