CUPE releases new legal assessment of TILMA

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has just released a new legal analysis of the B.C./Alberta Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA).

The expert legal opinion prepared by Steven Shrybman of Sack Goldblatt Mitchell analyses the anti-democratic trade scheme from a municipal governance perspective. It was released in conjunction with the recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities meeting held this past weekend in Calgary, Alberta.

Hi Larry.

Nice to know there are voices like yours speaking out against this blind rush toward law-of-the-jungle economics and free trade at any cost.
Best wishes.
