Abstract

Interprovincial trade barriers are a drag on Canadian productivity and send an embarrassing message to international investors. Despite some past progress in reducing them, they remain an irritant to our economic union. Trade liberalization as pursued by Alberta and British Columbia in the TILMA is a model that Ottawa and the provinces should pursue.
