Put an end to "Secret Negotiations" as occurred with the TPP

We are a democracy. No elected official, prime minister or otherwise, has the right to negotiate on the country's behalf in secret and in so doing potentially commit the country to a long-term agreement that the citizens, or future generations, might not agree with. We need a policy whereby the terms and conditions of significant agreements are made public and importantly are open for discussion. Railroading through decades long contracts just because a majority leader can do so does not make it right, or democratic.
