New Zealand has posted the text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal on its Foreign Ministry website.

The text of deal between a dozen Pacific Rim countries was finalized on October 5th, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he wanted to read it before passing judgment.

In all, it contains hundreds of pages of provisions governing the trade of a vast range of goods, including cars, cheese and wine.

When the agreement was announced during the federal election campaign, Stephen Harper hailed it as a landmark deal. But a few industries — namely the auto and dairy sectors — decried it, saying it would threaten the livelihoods of thousands of workers.

Harper promised a 4.3-billion-dollar package for dairy farmers and one-billion for the auto sector. (5)
