Stephen Harper's rivals say they haven't been consulted on a possible Trans-Pacific trade deal to be struck with 11 other countries. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has issued a statement suggesting the government can't agree to any pact during an election campaign. Trade Minister Ed Fast is currently in Atlanta, awaiting an anticipated announcement Friday that the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a go. (Fast says he's confident that when a deal is reached, it will be one that is beneficial and defensible to Canadians as being in the country's long-term interest.)
