Public Pressure Forces B.C. Government to Drop Vote on TILMA Enforcement Bill

It appears that the secretive, anti-democratic Gord Campbell government in British Columbia has a bit of trouble on their hands. For a second time, public pressure and fierce opposition has forced them to back down on their attempts to ram through the B.C. / Alberta Trade Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) enforcement bill.

TILMA is a massive assault on democracy and is being pushed by corporations and the right-wing governments and political parties that they control.

In addition, Erin Weir has added more commentary on the topic of anti-democratic government behaviour over at the "Progressive Economics Form" Blog under the title of: TILMA, Ontario and Quebec: The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance.
