Renegotiating NAFTA – Maintaining the cultural exemption or giving up our cultural sovereignty

The S.A.C. is a member of the Coalition for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDEC) who are fighting to maintain cultural exemption and to prevent safe harbour, being championed globally by US tech lobbyists, in the Canadian part of the NAFTA agreement. Those two topics concerning NAFTA are the main topics of interest to the Canadian music creator community CDEC represents.  On August 29 CDEC made a statement broadcast and followed with a statement by ACTRA.
