Why Trudeau’s endorsement #TPP deal and criticism of Harper for secrecy is an insult

Nothing I've heard from the Trudeau camp suggests that the Liberals endorse the TPP.

Instead, they're going to take an adult and public look at the TPP and decide whether or not it's good for Canadians. 

The NDP, by contrast, rejected a trade agreement without so much as even looking at the contents. That's childish and irresponsible.
