Sask. Party does not support TILMA

I just returned from Regina and was surprised to read in the Leader Post that the opposition Sask. Party does not support TILMA. Really it should be not that surprising. Although the Sask. Party is right wing, many right wingers are concerned about local control and the provinces losing power. Their main concern was that there were too many unanswered questions about TILMA. Even though it is leftist leaning groups such as the Council of Canadians that form the main opposition to TILMA together with some unions the concerns raised by TILMA are shared by many right leaning groups. In the US much of the opposition to deep integration comes not so much from the left but from right wing US nationalists who worry about the erosion of US sovereignty.
