Presentation to the Standing Senate Committee on Banking Trade and Commerce

On June 6, 2007 I made a presentation to the Standing Senate Committe on Banking Trade and Commerce.

The purpose of the presentation was to provide evidence to the Senate Committee on issues related to the purported benefits of the B.C./Alberta Trade Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA).

I was appearing at the same time as National Union of Public and General Employees Secretary-Treasurer Larry Brown. Larry Brown attended in person, and I was linked in via video conference.

In all, the presentations and question and answers took just over an hour. You can read the verbatim transcript of the entire event by clicking here.

It will come as no surprise that our arguments and presentations were opposed to TILMA.
