Via Relentlessly Progressive Economics, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has released two major papers on the TILMA. One concludes (and confirms my concerns) that the negative effects of TILMA are far beyond those admitted by B.C. and Alberta so far; and the other thoroughly eviscerates the laughable (and indeed thoroughly laughed-at) Conference Board of Canada study that's been trumpeted as evidence of the alleged benefits of TILMA.

And based on scans of all my usual news sources plus a Google News search, the next mention of either study in the corporate media will be the first. Which can only offer a predictable signal that many news outlets have picked their side in the TILMA dispute - and that those of us not eager to see provinces sign away their ability to govern will have to work doubly hard to get our message heard.
