A: The article is legible and free of grammar mistake.

P: The article intended to illustrate the disadvantage of Canada joining TPP.

Summary and useable points:

It is unnecessary for Canada join the TPP because “Canada already has free trade agreements with the U.S., Mexico, Chile, and Peru. That leaves just six countries, which currently represent less than one per cent of Canadian exports.” Canada was forced to accept tough conditions as a cost to join TPP. For example, Canada had no “veto authority” over any chapter and could not add any provision on the agreement.
