NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is pounding away at the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal as he campaigns ahead of next Monday’s election.
Speaking on The Jon McComb Show on CKNW Monday, Mulcair says the problems aren’t just with lost jobs in the auto or dairy sectors.
“Here in B.C., you have a strict rule that says if you have personal, confidential information, it has to be held in a server located in B.C. That rule’s going to be thrown out, so that’s on a personal level. Top-level people in the high-tech sector like (former Research in Motion co-CEO) Jim Balsillie are saying, ‘Hold on, this is a real problem for Canadian high-tech manufacturing sector.'”
On the economy, Mulcair said his promise to increase corporate taxes will not lead to job losses.
Mulcair began campaigning in Maple Ridge Monday morning and is in Saskatoon in the afternoon.
