A Summary of Its Impacts by Ellen Gould, of CCPA: "...a major step towards “deep integration” with the US..." “Alberta and BC politicians are selling the agreement on the claim that supposedly show “billions” could be saved by eliminating so-called inter-provincial trade barriers. These claims have been repeatedly debunked by economists. Real barriers to inter-provincial trade are minimal. The claims about inter-provincial barriers are really an attack on government’s right to regulate” http://politicsnpoetry.wordpress.com/2006/10/18/tilma-not-for-sk/ Interestingly enough, the tilma (or tilmàtli) was an article of clothing worn by the Aztecs, partly to help define the classes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilma_%28clothing%29 How apropos! Do you suppose some wonk latched onto this word, and made the agreement title to fit the acronym?
