TILMA: Canada West Foundation hosts luncheon with Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty; event sponsored by participants of North American Forum

Here's an excerpt from a recent posting by Joe Kuchta over at the Owls and Roosters Blog.

"Like Jason Voorhees, the hockey-masked, machete-wielding killer from the Friday the 13th series of slasher films, the BC-Alberta Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement just won’t die.

On August 30, 2007, the right wing think tank Canada West Foundation hosted an invitation only luncheon with Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty at the Hyatt Regency Calgary. A finance department news release the previous day said the minister “will speak about the current state of Canada’s economy, and the need to meet some key challenges to keep it strong.” Preaching to the faithful Flaherty once again shamelessly attempted to drum up support for the reckless and destructive trade deal."
