Yes, the existing, unratified version of the C-CITreaty (China – Canada Investment Treaty; aka; FIPPA) does provide some “protection” to corporate China, its shareholders, et al, from having to pay a disproportionate amount of The Compensation that is embodied in The W.A.D. Accord (this attempted “protection” is likely considered by the “coveted” foreign investor, et al, to be yet another poorly camouflaged attempt by corporate Canada to minimize, &/or, eliminate it’s portion of its contribution to The Compensation by off loading it on to corporate China, its shareholders & its people for trying to develop the natural resources that are continuing to be found in Canada), but, when corporate Canada insists that these penalties & the punitive damages for the “controlled challenges” to the C-CI Treaty are also a “guaranteed” way of raising the value of their shares (paid by the “innocent” Canadian taxpayers) in these joint natural resource development & financing projects, & thus, legally, as opposed to “ethically & morally deprived”, reward the Canadian & Chinese C-CI Treaty shareholders by way of secret tribunals & arrangements, it’s clear that the representatives of corporate Canada, the executives of the political parties, are going to tell the Canadian taxpayers/voters (who have no choice but to pay for the aforementioned penalties & the punitive damages) to blame the Chinese for these prerequisite terms & conditions & claim (once again) that:
“We did the best that we could have under very onerous conditions; trying to ride the giant ‘dragon’s’ economy…”.
It may be regrettable that one of the C-CI Treaty problems that corporate Canada, et al, is down playing to corporate China, et al, is the problem of Canadian (both; Native & non Native Canadians) civil disobedience & demonstrations, such as, “Idle No More”, et al, if the C-CI Treaty is not improved in the relevant & simple manner. Otherwise, it is very likely that corporate Canada will try to drag (“beholden”) corporate China under Canada’s protective covers against accusations of Canada’s further human rights violations.
