In today's (May 15, 2007) editorial the Saskatoon StarPhoenix attempts to argue that those opposed to the B.C./Alberta Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) are using "Scare Tactics".
Oh there are "scare tactics" being employed alright. But they are not being employed by people who oppose TILMA.
These "scare tactics" are being used by the pro-multi-national corporation types who are attempting to blackmail Saskatchewan into signing this anti-democratic so-called trade agreement by threatening that if we don't sacrifice democracy and sign on - the world will pass us by.
It's just so much more of the constant barrage of negativity coming from certain elements of the business crowd. They oppose community, they oppose public interest, they oppose democracy, they oppose unions, they oppose medicare, they oppose crown corporations, they oppose anyone making a decent living, they oppose any increase to the minimum wage, they oppose improving the lot of those most vulnerable in our society.
And they support secrecy, backroom deals, war and George W. Bush.
