TILMA in Saskatchewan

The provincial government has finally gotten of its collective behinds and released the TILMA assessment done for Saskatchewan by the Conference Board of Canada.

For the flaws in these types of studies, read these different assesments of the same analysis done for the original BA/Alberta agreement.

However, a quote from page 6 should make people think twice:

As with any comprehensive agreement, the TILMA presents not only opportunities for Saskatchewan Economy [sic] but also contains potential risks. Reduced legislative independence of the provincial and municipal governing bodies, a potential loss of local procurement contracts and short-term increased provincial out-migration would lower the potential positive economic impact on the province
And this is from the PRO-TILMA side! Yikes!
