Canada West Foundation senior economist Michael Holden wants us to believe his think-tank is the only one "dedicated to being the objective, non-partisan voice for issues of vital concern to Western Canadians." This is laughable.
For the record:
- The Canada West Foundation is where the Reform Party got started.
- The Canada West Foundation is backed by Western Canada's biggest business tycoons.
- The Canada West Foundation is pro-market, anti-union, anti-environmental and anti-social justice.
If it's the voice for Western Canadians, it's a small group of Western Canadians. The West's one percenters perhaps?
