A protest against TILMA

Free Trade Under Fire in Canada

Protests Against TILMA
Plans to deepen Canada's embrace of trade liberalization and deregulation are running into new pockets of resistance. A wave of protest has risen in western Canada over a new trade deal between British Columbia and Alberta. Embracing the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) model, this new accord goes by its acronym 'TILMA'-the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement.
