Why won’t the Trudeau Liberal Government be open and transparent with Canadians on any free trade agreements they are negotiating?

The European Parliament approved the trade agreement between Canada and the EU today and was overwhelmingly approved by the House here in Canada.
This trade deal was negotiated and concluded under our previous Conservative government, and would not have been possible without our former Prime Minister the Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Honourable Ed Fast, Honourable Peter Van Loan.
Congratulations to everyone that has worked so hard over the past many years to make this possible, opening up Canadian opportunities to a global marketplace.
