I should preface this by saying that I have some respect for the C of C and that as far as Canadian activists groups go they easily surpass the others in term of organizational skills, clarity in communication, etc. I do not think, however, that a petition is the best way to lead a fight against CETA. Given the paucity of corporate coverage on CETA, it would seem a more aggressive campaign would be required. For example, I notice the Winnipeg chapter has a facebook page to which they load videos. It might be an idea for them to do on the street interviews/video push-polls which ask people about what they know of CETA, whether they know it would prevent Canada from makings its own solar panels, windmills and practically force Canada to import them. This would encourage people to discuss the issue and promote C of C's websites, materials, etc.
I would be curious to know if there are any C of C members here on rabble/babble and what they think.
