Home is where the trade barriers are
APGO
An interesting article in Maclean's Magazine that illustrates the culture of provincial trade barriers in Canada and how the Agreement on Internal Trade can be ineffective. The issues raised in this article also apply to P.Geo.'s who want to work seamlessly across Canada. APGO advocates for the national mobility for P.Geo.'s in a national environment where cooperation between provinces is challenging.

APGO thanks member Alan Aubut, P.Geo. for suggesting this story.

Xmet more than doubled its land position at its Blackflake project by acquiring a second block located seven kilometres east of Zenyatta's Albany "hydrothermal" graphite diatremes in northeastern Ontario.
