Hon. Peter Julian, MP (Burnaby-New Westminster) and NDP Critic on International Trade and Globalization. A former manual labourer, Peter returned to school later and became a financial administrator. Organizations that he led won consecutive Excellence in Business awards. Peter has been a strong critic of the dysfunctional trade architecture and Canada’s trade policies. He oppposed the softwood lumber agreement unsuccesfully; the SPP in campaign with activists across the country succesfully and working with civil society activists and the labour movement was able to pioneer a new approach on trade legislation through combined oppostion to the Canada-Colombia trade deal.
