AIT to the Rescue!

Perhaps AIT can save all us Canadians from purgatory (Chicken Hell) that we were cast into by the #ChickenMafia.

AIT (Agreement on Internal Trade) is a Canada-wide trade agreement between all the Provinces, Territories, and the Federal Government.  AIT was born out of the 1999 Social Union Framework Agreement, Prime Minister Cretian's legacy for us all.

AIT is an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian First Ministers that came into force in 1995. Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate, to the extent possible, barriers to the free movement of persons, goods, services, and investment within Canada and to establish an open, efficient, and stable domestic market.

So far, only fluid milk has used AIT to escape from the infinite gravity of the Black Hole of Supply Management.

To make sure nobody else tries to escape, let alone being successful, the wording in the AIT agreement was tightened and made more explicit that nobody else will get out alive.

Fortunately, the AIG agreement has had many edits in the past, and more will come in the future.  There is hope, for AIT's Committee on Internal Trade advises all Canadian governments on both AIT, and what should be set as AIT's next priority.

To me, it's obvious that the laser beam gun sight needs to be trained on the Chicken Mafia, and helping all Canadians, for all Canadians eat, and about 90% eat chicken.

It's an easy win for all governments:
  • 2,700 Chicken Mafia members get upset;
  • 31.41 million Canadians cheer (90% of our 34.9 million population, the chicken eaters in Canada).
So like all good muckrakers, I sent all members of the Committee on Internal Trade an email asking them to act in the best interest of all Canadians, rather than bowing to the power and lobbying pressures of the Chicken Mafia.  You can read my email, and forward a copy to your MP, your MPP, Mother-in-law, and anybody else you can think of.

Let's see what happens next.
