Westac talk on regulatory reform in Calgary, October 20th

WESTAC’s fall meeting in Calgary is on the subject of regulation – as it relates to supply chains and transportation, and the coming Canada Transportation Act Review.
They’ve asked me to open their event on the 20th with a keynote presentation by me on the broad subject of regulation. This is a members only meeting, but regular readers of my work will be able to work out quite successfully what I will have to say!

Ottawa talk on internal trade barriers and setting Canadians free!

The Calgary School of Public Policy is holding an event in Ottawa on Sept. 15th to discuss Canada’s international trade agenda. Fortunately they realise that internal trade barriers are just as germane to Canada’s economic success as international ones and so they’ll be having a panel on just that under the able chairmanship of my friend Ailish Campbell of CCCE. Come join the fun at the Chateau Laurier that day. Details from the School.
