We have free trade agreements with dozens of countries.
But the Supreme Court chose yesterday not to enforce article 121 of our Constitution that guarantees free trade between provinces.
We can’t go from one province to another with alcohol.
We can’t work in other provinces if we don’t have the right permits.
We can’t do business in every province because of regulation.
We can’t even send oil across provincial borders.
And yet illegal migrants can cross our national borders without problems.
What’s wrong with this picture?
The solutions are not simple.
But it would be easier if there were more politicians in Ottawa who are aware of the problem and make it a priority.
