On shining examples

Sure, there's plenty to criticize in Todd Hirsch's column, which for reasons unknown seems to have been given prime real estate in the Globe and Mail.

But let's be fair to Hirsch: while his column may be an embarrassment from the standpoint of having anything useful or accurate to say, it does look to be perfectly emblematic of the TILMA/WEPA corporate movement. After all, it takes somebody whose depth of understanding is in the range of "BC = pot! (hehindeedy!) Saskatchewan = ViCo! (hyukhyukhyuk!)" to overlook the complete lack of reality to the supposed "trade barriers" he's so eager to fight - not to mention the fact that the examples of procurement and labour mobility have long since been dealt with.
