Don Davies Interview: Canada-Colombia Free Trade and Human Rights Implications

Don Davies, Member of the Canadian Parliament and opposition international trade critic
In this podcast, Mr. Stephen Garvey, FDA Executive Director, interviews Mr. Don Davies, member of the Canadian Parliament, lawyer, and opposition international trade critic. Mr. Davies speaks directly and sincerely about the impact of the 2011 Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement on Colombian human rights. In addition, Mr. Davies shares his perspective on the motives of the Canadian Conservative Harper government regarding relations with Colombia and international trade. Mr. Davies challenges the Canadian Conservative government's neo-conservative trade approach with a multilateral trade approach which protects the environment, improves human rights, and is mutually beneficial for all trading countries.

This podcast and any other FDA podcast do not necessarily represent the views of the FDA. The FDA supports broad and diverse speech.

The FDA requested, with follow-up email, an interview from Conservative MP Devinder Shory who is involved in international trade for the federal government, but he has ignored the interview request. In addition, the Canada's international trade minister, Mr. Edward Fast and the Canadian Fair Trade Association have ignored the FDA's requests for interviews.
