Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada opposed to TILMA??

Is the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada opposed to the B.C./Alberta Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA)?

Below is a quote from their web-site regarding the Federal Government (Finance Minister Flaherty's) support for schemes like TILMA:

TILMA as a Model to Enhance Internal Trade

To reduce internal trade barriers, Minister Flaherty sites the Alberta-British Columbia Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) as a model for other provinces to follow. He states that TILMA, the most comprehensive agreement of its type in Canadian history, has created significant momentum. The federal government is committed to building on this momentum and will work with interested provinces and territories to examine how the TILMA provisions could be applied more broadly to reduce interprovincial barriers to trade and labour mobility across the country.

The government's intention to promote the expansion of TILMA poses a challenge to the consulting engineering industry because of the possibility that such agreements can promote low-price bidding for professional services.

You tell me.
