can someone please fact-check that petition going around saying harper “sold” canada to china, I’m smelling tumblr’s inability to do basic research all over that post and id like people to know what the hell is actually going on

"sold" is a little hyperbolic but the FIPA agreement between Canada and China is definitely cause for concern. FIPA Facts puts the problematic points into three nice categories: 1) Reckless 2) Secretive 3) Binding.

Whether or not you think the actual agreement is an issue from an economic stance, the fact is it will allow the Canadian and Chinese governments to make decisions about cases relating to their business secret from the Canadian Public. This isn’t a short term agreement, either: it’s a 31 year contract and requires 15 years notice to cancel (compared to the 6 months notice with the USA free trade agreement we have) 

Take note that this bill did not get approval of the house of commons. Or anyone else. It got passed as a royal prerogative instead.

It’s also worth noting that this isn’t the first time this agreement has caused controversy. It was first arranged in 2012. There was a petition going around that I can’t seem to find now. The First Nations of Canada challenged this whole thing in 2013 and the legal action is still ongoing. Why do they care? Because the agreement would potentially allow China to sue Canada for use of Native land. It also poses a risk for a lot of our natural resources, so no surprise the Green Party has been against it from the start .

It’s probably worth noting that this isn’t a direct handover of Canadian resources- just a really big loop hole. 

Now, there are two petitions going around that I can find. One is on Leadnow sporting 94,000+ signatures and the NDP run petition.

tl:dr - Stephen Harper suddenly decided to pass a Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement with China. This had been in limbo for two years after public outcry. There’s been no voting on the issue. This agreement will lock Canada in for at least 15 years and during this time legal cases that effect Canadian resources can be held without public knowledge. 2 of 5 major Canadian parties have tried to rally the public to petition. 

There are definitely alarmists (and racists and people who just don’t like trade agreements) but this isn’t something to just glaze over.

you are absolutely excellent thank you

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q)
