Larry Brown (NUPGE) and Erin Weir (CLC) respond to Ottawa Citizen endorsement of TILMA

On Tuesday, May 15, 2007 the Ottawa Citizen, in an editorial piece, endorsed the B.C./Alberta Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) -- surprise, surprise.

The Spin Doctors over at the corporate media are working overtime to please their masters.

The flawed methodology and baseless support relied on by the Ottawa Citizen has been responded to and criticized by a couple of folks from the labour community:

Larry Brown from the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) in: Beware downside to latest trade deal.


Erin Weir from the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) in: What Internal Trade Barriers?

TILMA strips away Government's ability to regulate and legislate in the Public Interest. It is a Massive Assault on Democracy. KNOW TILMA!
