Conservatives Line Up Support from Auto-Parts Makers for TPP Deal

According to the article (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/conservatives-line-up-auto-support-for-tpp-deal/article26579770/), governing conservatives are working to identify and galvanize public support for the TPP deal, and by doing so counteract what they consider to be excessively negative statements regarding the impact of the deal.

They have lined up support from big auto-parts makers, exposing a split in the industry’s stance on the deal. While the deal could cause a loss of 80,000 auto-parts manufacturing jobs in Canada, two major Canadian auto-parts makers (ranked the second and third largest in Canada by revenue) argue that the country has no choice but to accept the TPP trade pact. They say that the TPP could help them win more contracts abroad, as it will open up foreign markets that they did not previously have access to.
