 The Trans Pacific Partnership, a free-trade agreement, is currently being negotiated between twelve countries from the pacific region including Canada and the United-States. The former are pushing to heighten monopoly give to new discoveries by individual national patent protection. Many NGO’s, including University Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), are fearing that this will further restrict access to medication for the most vulnerable countries and serve as a benchmark for future agreements. This week, Daniel interviewed Richard Gold, intellectual property law professor at the McGill Law Faculty and Diane Singhroy, a graduate student at the Immunology Department at McGill who has been actively involved with coordinating UAEM’s national campaign against the TPP. They discussed the effects and implication of this future trade agreement.

Besides UAEM, various NGOs such as Amnesty International, Knowledge Ecology International, American Medical Students Association, Doctors without Borders, Public Citizen, Open Media, Electronic Frontiers Foundation, Council of Canadians, and many more are all standing in solidarity against TPP.
